Mercury Poisoning from Dental Fillings

Worldwide, it’s estimated that more than 180 million people have teeth the have been repaired with some sort of dental restorative material. In total, that’s a staggering 1.4 billion teeth. From the 1950s through present day, one of the most common dental restoratives has always been dental amalgam. Often called “silver fillings,” this metallic mixture is prepared with up to 50% or more liquid mercury. Poisoning from these “mercury fillings” is a risk that holistic dental professionals are quick to warn patients about, even though agencies like the American Dental Association refuse to formally acknowledge any potential health problems associated with their use. At Assure A Smile, we take a holistic approach to dentistry that focuses on both oral health and total body wellness. We believe patients should be educated about mercury poisoning, dental amalgam, and the long-term health risks associated with silver fillings.


Mercury in Your Mouth [Free Infographic]

In 1991, the World Health Organization released a report confirming that the mercury content of dental amalgam (used for silver fillings) was the single greatest source of mercury pollution in non-industrialized settings. Since that time, health professionals and environmental scientists have pushed hard to have the material banned. Unfortunately, there is nothing illegal about putting this dangerous neuro-toxin in your mouth. Learn more about the dangers of mercury-rich dental amalgam in the free infographic below.

Scientific World Journal Calls for Critical Review of Fluoridated Public Water

A new article published in The Scientific World Journal has doctors, researchers, and health agencies from around the world reconsidering the potential harm caused by fluoridated public water.

Water fluoridation is a controversial topic. On one side, the pro-fluoride lobby insists fluoride is essential in preventing widespread tooth decay. Fluoride proponents believe the mineral strengthens tooth enamel, making it more difficult for acid-producing plaque to cause cavities and dental caries.


Is Baby Water with Fluoride Safe for Infants?

Baby water with fluoride claims to help children develop strong and healthy teeth. Studies by the Harvard School of Public Health claim otherwise, calling fluoride a potentially toxic mineral that seems to cause “chemical brain drain” in children (i). Nestlé, the leading brand behind the new fluoride water for babies, must now answer serious questions about fluoride and children’s health as the U.S. Court of Appeals has agreed to hear oral arguments from a mother whose daughter allegedly developed dental fluorosis as a result of the fluoridated bottled water.

7 Tips to Avoid Fluoride While Grocery Shopping

Despite no clinical evidence to support that the mineral helps to reduce tooth decay, most communities in the United States still have water that is treated with fluoride. Over time, fear of tooth decay and gum disease has led to an explosion of fluoride toothpastes, mouth rinses, and special enamel treatments that purportedly improve oral health. Contrary to conventional wisdom, Americans are experiencing fluoride overload that is causing increased rates of fluorosis, arthritis, and other serious illnesses. This guide has been created to spread awareness for the dangers of fluoride, and to help consumers reduce exposure to this dangerous mineral by avoiding fluoride in popular beverages, fruits, vegetables, and other groceries.

Assure A Smile Raises Awareness for Children’s Oral Health Needs

This February, Assure A Smile raises awareness for children’s oral health needs. According to studies published by the Surgeon General, American children suffer from chronic tooth decay at alarming numbers, predisposing the nation’s youth to serious health issues. In the short run, high rates of tooth decay can lead to gum disease, infection, and gingivitis. Long term, however, the bacteria that causes gum disease has been found to also cause heart disease and increase the risk of stroke.
