For the uninitiated, for a hundred years dental health practitioners used mercury and other metals for fillings and amalgams. They were not aware of the harmful effects that mercury had on human body. But, the mercury free dentists found out that mercury is one of the most toxic substances known to man. They revealed that mercury when used for fillings, released throughout the day, in the form of vapors in to the blood streams which was readily absorbed by the body. Further, the body can not eliminate mercury on its own.
As a result, the mercury free dentists encouraged the use of biocompatible dental materials or, the materials that the body is compatible with for dental care and treatment.
Mercury free dentistry involves a process of detoxification. The body is cleansed of all metals and other harmful substances through a number of ways including metal analysis, vitamin flushes, specialized evacuation tests, and post treatment dietary regimen.
In addition to adopting various techniques to eliminate toxins from the body, the mercury-free dentist advises patients on which foods, toothpastes, and mouthwashes to have, and which to avoid. The mercury free dentists ensure that their patients have healthy gums and teeth and an overall healthy body.
Though, the price of mercury-free dentistry generally varies from one dental clinic to another, and on the amount of filling that the patient needs, it is advisable to shop around if you wish to enjoy affordable mercury free dentistry.
