The Toxicity of Dental Mercury [Infographic]

How to safely remove silver fillingsUp to 340 tons of dental mercury journeys into the global environment every year. How? When dentists give patients amalgam fillings, the leftover amalgam – which are made with mercury – is thrown into the trash and transported to incinerators and landfills. Amalgam fillings, also known as silver fillings, sully the environment, and they also do great damage to your mouth and overall health and wellness.

You can have your silver fillings replaced by the safe, tooth-colored composite fillings. But even this must be done with the right dentist – specifically, a holistic dentist who knows how to properly remove the amalgam fillings and safely dispose of them so that they do not contaminate the air in the dental office or seep into the environment or water supply.

The infographic below, from the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, details dental mercury’s toxic journey back into the environment.

If you still have silver fillings, schedule your consultation with Dr. Yolanda Cintron at Fort Lauderdale’s International Center for Dental Excellence to make plans for the safe removal of the amalgam fillings and the replacement with non-mercury dental fillings.
