Alzheimer’s disease is an affliction that so many people fear. You can’t control it or reverse it. One thing that can be changed, however, is a person’s exposure to mercury, thereby reducing the risk of developing mercury-induced dementia. The infographic below from the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology shows how inorganic dental mercury can cause the same biochemical hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease while also identifying the frightening similarities between mercury poisoning and Alzheimer’s symptoms.
A holistic dentist is concerned with your overall well-being, not just the health of your teeth. If you still have amalgam fillings in your mouth, it’s time to discuss the safe removal of these mercury-laced silver fillings and replacing them with non-mercury tooth fillings to limit your exposure to mercury.
