Mercury Safe Dentistry

Those Dark Fillings Are not Only Unattractive – They are Unhealthy!

Dr. Tom McGuire’s YouTube Video Mercury: The Poison in Your Teethprovides conclusive, quantitative proof that not only do amalgam fillings release toxic mercury vapor, but also that the common act of brushing just one amalgam filling will release more mercury than allowed by governmental regulatory agencies at the workplace.

Open your mouth and take a look inside – if you have any dark, metal, “silver” fillings in your teeth, you very likely have mercury in your system! First introduced in the 1800’s as an easy and inexpensive way to repair teeth, mercury-based fillings have always been controversial. Some experts argue that the mercury in your fillings is stable, while others say that Mercury gas is released every time you chew.

Helping You Find Better Health

Because our focus is on helping you find true and ideal health – both for your smile and for your body – we do not risk your wellbeing by placing mercury fillings in your teeth. Instead we work to educate you about oral health, mercury amalgam fillings, and mercury detoxification. Dr. Dino Mantis is listed as a “Mercury Safe Dentist” and is a member of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD). We owe a lot of our own understanding of how mercury in dentistry affects your health to Dr. Tom McGuire, the founder of the IAMSD and a respected authority on the topic.
