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.

Mercury toxicity symptoms are many; mercury poisoning takes a heavy toll on the body, affecting the neurological and central nervous systems, as well as the gastrointestinal, immune, neuromuscular, and cardiovascular systems. Major organs, such as the brain, liver, and kidneys, also suffer as a result of mercury toxicity.

Childhood Dental Problems and Pediatric Dentistry | *New Jersey

The prevalence of pediatric tooth decay—sometimes, aggressive decay—is rising, even among children who have nutritious diets that are low in sugar. Research points toward systemic problems, caused by factors such as radiation exposure, hormonal abnormalities, reaction to foreign proteins in foods, and/or improper mineralization.

There are specific patterns of tooth decay. The age of the patient is sometimes a factor in these patterns.

  • Baby teeth vs. adult teeth.
  • Anterior (front) vs. posterior (back) tooth patterns
  • Contra-lateral tooth patterns.
  • Decay clustering.
  • Post-eruption susceptibility.

Root Canal Alternative Dentistry in Berkeley Heights, NJ

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 gotta perch. 
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 question regarding the safety of failed root canals may never be adequately answered. Also, the basic question about whether a root canal failure can be determined due to pain is still debated. Pain, as we have discussed, shows little correlation to histologist findings.Root canal failure, an issue of systemic proportion, remains a little understood and hotly debated subject.

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.


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.
