Mercury toxicity, also called mercury poisoning, is caused by a high level of mercury in the body. The presence of mercury has been shown to cause a wide range of chronic and acute health problems affecting all major systems in the body.

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 New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection operates the Dental Amalgam Program, which contributes to significant reductions in the discharge of mercury into the environment. Additionally, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issues compliance standards for medical and dental offices regarding the use of mercury; however, OSHA standards regulate the protection of dental staff but not patients.

The Center for Systemic Dentistry will work with you to determine the best course of treatment to safely remove your existing mercury amalgam.

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.

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.
