Holistic Dentistry in Brooklyn


Did you know that most dental amalgams(silver fillings) contain approximately 50% elemental mercury by weight?

Did you know that mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive metal on earth? Did you know that in California, congresswoman Diane Watson is proposing legislation to phase out mercury in all of dental practice?

By definition mercury is a silver-white poisonous heavy metallic element that is liquid at ordinary temperatures and is used especially in batteries, in dental amalgam, and in scientific instruments (mercury is also knows as quicksilver). Mercury is a heavy metal. Any amount of mercury in your body can hurt you. Some of the common symptoms of mercury poisoning include:

Heart/chest pains, Arrhythmia (irregular beat), Angina, Tachycardia (heart racing), Heart murmur, Low blood pressure, Abnormal EKG, Endocarditis, Partial heart block, High blood pressure, Heart attack, Unexplained elevated serum triglyceride, Unexplained elevated cholesterol, unexplained rashes, excessive itching, red flushes of color, rough skin, acne (pimples), Severe dermatitis, Nervous Disorders, diarrhea, Belle's Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, shingles, epilepsy/convulsions, ulcers, Crohn's disease, Graves Disease,indigestion, bloated feeling after eating, heartburn, poor appetite, leukemia, Hodgkins disease, Diabetis, depression, frequent headaches, etc. Unfortunately the list of symptoms from mercury poisoning is rather long and difficult to diagnose at first.

Our nutritional recommendations:
Make Healthy Smile Choices-teeth friendly foods are naturally high in nutrients and low in sugar. Some foods that are excellent for your dental health are milk, eggs, yogurt, peanuts and cheese. Milk acts as an acid inhibitor when combined with starches like those found in cereal. Other snacks that are good for your smile include meat, seafood, hard-boiled eggs, raw vegetables, plain popcorn, seeds and nuts. Foods which are devastating for your smile are high in sugar and lacking in nutritional value. Examples include: soft drinks, ice cream, raisins, dried fruits, sweetened juices, chocolate, candies, gum, jellies and other beverages high in sugars. Limiting your intake of these foods whenever possible will help preserve your healthy smile. In general, common sense should prevail! Eat sensibly, brush and floss your teeth daily, and visit your dentist to ensure your smile remains healthy and beautiful.
