Information About Mercury

This video demonstrates the mercury vapour arising from so called amalgam fillings. Amalgam fillings should be called mercury fillings as they start life as 52% mercury. It is astonishing that these fillings are still being place in the human body.

Mercury is a heavy metal that is toxic to humans and is a known carcinogen. Mercury affects the brain, kidney, and lungs.

Exposure to mercury poisoning can occur from breathing contaminated air, like mercury vapor from mercury amalgam dental restorations (fillings) sitting in your teeth and also when old fillings are being removed.

This is why we have systems in our practice to eliminate you and our staff from mercury vapor exposure.

Studies with animals have shown that mercury from silver amalgam mercury fillings get to nearly all cells in the body within 2 – 3 weeks.
Mercury is even detectable in the mitochondria inside cells which is thought to be the part that initiates energy for the body.

Dr. Tom has been a holistic dentist since 1981 and has 32 years of experience removing toxic mercury fillings safely and carefully. [/su_column]
