Dr. Philip Memoli | Mercury Toxicity Safe Dentist NYC | NJ – 07922

Many patients have heard the term “mercury toxicity” associated with fillings but still have many questions about it: what is it, am I affected by it, and what can be done to remediate it?

Fillings are made of a substance called dental amalgam. This is a mixture of metals, consisting primarily of mercury. Mercury amalgam has been used as a dental filling material around the world since ancient times and in the United States for nearly 200 years.

Current standards for dental education do not include instruction for safe amalgam removal. To receive training in proper removal of amalgam fillings (to protect patient and staff from mercury vapor), dentists receive training from any of several postgraduate institutions, including the Holistic Dental Association and the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology.

The comprehensive protocols established by The Center for Systemic Dentistry ensure a thorough process for safe amalgam removal.

Pediatric tooth decay is on the rise. Some research suggests that systemic causes—including radiation exposure, hormonal abnormalities, and foreign proteins in food—are to blame.

Hypomineralization, caused mainly by a diet inadequate in minerals, increases a child’s susceptibility to decay. The systemic theory of decay suggests that other factors become relevant only after hypomineralization has begun.

Paediatric Dentistry

Tooth decay in children falls into distinct categories:

–Baby teeth versus adult teeth

–Anterior (front) vs. posterior (back) tooth patterns

–Contra-lateral tooth patterns

–Decay clustering

–Post-eruption susceptibility

A pediatric dental wellness program helps your child to learn the lessons of proper health maintenance and nutritional habits that prevent dental disease. You can bring your child for his or her first dental exam after all the baby teeth are in—generally, between ages three and five.

Our pediatric wellness program begins with a three-part, comprehensive exam that checks tooth diagnosis, jaw development diagnosis, and periodontal diagnosis.

–The tooth diagnosis assesses tooth development, tooth mineralization, and decay development.

–The jaw development diagnosis examines jaw development and alignment of the teeth.

–The periodontal diagnosis is an examination for teen gingivitis.

Treatment for mercury poisoning NJ 07922 Call us (908) 464-9144

Many patients have heard the term “mercury toxicity” associated with fillings but still have many questions about it: what is it, am I affected by it, and what can be done to remediate it?

Fillings are made of a substance called dental amalgam. This is a mixture of metals, consisting primarily of mercury. Mercury amalgam has been used as a dental filling material around the world since ancient times and in the United States for nearly 200 years.

The question of whether or not mercury amalgam fillings contribute to mercury exposure is hotly debated.

–Many dentists believe that amalgam fillings, in use for more than 150 years in this country, are safe and that only a small percentage of the population shows sensitivity to mercury in fillings. This is the position of the American Dental Association (ADA); however, the organization also supports ongoing research to assure the safety of all materials used in dental work.

–Many toxicologists associate great risk with the use of mercury amalgam fillings. One researcher, Andrew Cutler, has argued that “millions of people are being poisoned by mercury compounds the medical profession is exposing them to.”

Even among the doctors and researchers who agree that the use of mercury amalgam is problematic, there is debate about whether the preferred option is safe amalgam removal or leaving existing amalgam in place.

Among the latter, common arguments against the procedure include:

–All the mercury has already leaked out.

–Additional tooth structure will be lost by removing existing dental work.

–The patient will be exposed to toxic levels of mercury vapor being released as the fillings are drilled out.

The comprehensive protocols established by The Center for Systemic Dentistry ensure a thorough process for safe amalgam removal. Located in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, we are committed to being the state’s leading dental practice that focuses on holistic, healing-focused dentistry.

Best Laser Root Canal Alternative Treatment for Call us (908) 464-9144 | NJ 07922

A root canal-treated (RCT) or root-filled tooth is one in which the dental nerve, commonly called the pulp, is intentionally removed and is filled with an inert material called gutta percha.

WHAT ARE THE PROS AND CONS OF ROOT CANALS?

The pro of a root canal is obvious: the painful or dead tooth is treated and extraction is avoided. But we must ask two key questions before starting a root canal.

  • Can the tooth be restored?
  • Can a predictable RCT be performed, or are there risks for a poor result?

The cons or risks with an RCT are less obvious. They center on the fact that a tooth is an “open” biological system which interacts with the body. In other words, anything placed into the tooth will eventually find its way into the body and may interact with a susceptible cell or organ.

WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS ONCE A ROOT CANAL IS INEVITABLE?

It’s important to understand that all teeth problems are unique. No treatment is universal. Individual circumstances may dictate that a specific treatment is not an option. Or perhaps one option will offer a superior result over another.

Holistic Dentistry for Children Berkeley Heights

Childhood, when permanent (“adult”) teeth began to grow, is the best time to teach youngsters good oral hygiene habits and how to make wise nutritional choices. By learning how to prevent compromising the enamel, the hard substance that covers teeth, children can minimize and perhaps prevent the dental problems that plague many adults.

To this day, there is disagreement in the dental community about the precise cause of tooth decay. The most widely accepted theory is that decay is a local phenomenon (contained to the area of the mouth), caused when mouth bacteria consume sugar and excrete acid, which begins to decay enamel. Some studies have demonstrated that certain foods, medical conditions, and bacteria can initiate decay; other studies assert that, although those factors may start the decay process, they do not contribute the formation of cavities.

Pediatric tooth decay is on the rise. Some research suggests that systemic causes—including radiation exposure, hormonal abnormalities, and foreign proteins in food—are to blame. Hypomineralization, caused mainly by a diet inadequate in minerals, increases a child’s susceptibility to decay. The systemic theory of decay suggests that other factors become relevant only after hypomineralization has begun.

Safe Amalgam Removal New Jersey | Holistic Dentist Dr. Memoli

mercury amalgam silver

When the element mercury accumulates to a high concentration in the body, it can lead to a variety of acute and chronic medical problems, including organ damage and compromise of major bodily systems. Because of the widespread usage of mercury in dental amalgam materials, many people are susceptible to mercury toxicity and its associated health issues.

Dentists and toxicologists are divided over the extent of the danger posed by mercury amalgam fillings. Even those who agree that mercury amalgam is hazardous are further divided over whether the safer protocol is to remove them or to leave them untouched. Paradoxically, improper removal of old fillings can cause greater exposure to mercury. Dentists who focus on safe amalgam removal must receive specialized training in the practice; they also follow government guidelines for containment of mercury vapor during the procedure and disposal of mercury-containing materials afterward.

Mercury toxicity is a health problem that results from a variety of environmental exposures. In addition to its widespread use in dental amalgam, mercury gets into our surroundings from industrial processes and broken fluorescent tubes and even from natural phenomena, such as volcanic eruptions. It is also consumed in fish and meat; with each step up the food chain, mercury accumulates to a greater concentration in flesh tissues.

When a person is faced with mercury poisoning, three bodily systems—immune, detoxification, and elimination—come into play to deal with the problem. The first line of defense, the immune system, recognizes pathogens and foreign substances that are injurious to health. The immune system may react by neutralizing the threatening substance; it might also respond with chronic inflammation, with an overreacting immune reaction, or by shutting down entirely. These latter immune responses can lead to degenerative conditions and organ or tissue damage.

Detoxification works by preventing a recognized damaging substance from causing harm to the body. The liver is the main line of defense here, though other organs, such as the lungs and kidneys, play a role. Enzymes attach to toxins both chemically and electrostatically, preparing them for elimination from the body. Toxins that are difficult to neutralize, such as mercury, may undergo repeated phases of detoxification until they are safely contained.

The kidneys excrete simple toxins, whereas more dangerous ones are eliminated via the colon. Some health problems can cause the detox phase to reverse, causing subsequent repeated cycles of the elimination system. Heavy metals such as mercury are difficult to neutralize; they stress the body’s defense systems and, even if successfully eliminated, can leave severe damage in their wake.

A patient coming to The Center for Systemic Dentistry will be the recipient of a state-of-the-art protocol for safe removal of mercury amalgam. A comprehensive initial dental exam and systemic assessment determine the extent of mercury damage. This exam and an evaluation of the patient’s overall health help the doctor to determine if the patient is at risk of systemic reaction in the immune, detoxification, or elimination systems.

A safe, effective program for removal of mercury amalgam (safe mercury removal) is the first step toward reversing the effects of mercury toxicity in your body.
