Mercury Free

A current buzz term in dentistry is “mercury free,” but what does mercury have to do with dentistry? Metal or amalgam fillings are made up of 50% mercury. Mercury is a highly vaporous element when exposed to oxygen. The tasteless, odorless toxin can then be inhaled for years without patients noticing. As the most toxic non-radioactive element inhaling mercury is said to adversely affect the immune, cardiac, respiratory, urinary and digestive systems.

The adverse affects of mercury are cumulative. If you have ever heard the old story about the frog in the frying pan, you probably have a good idea what cumulative toxic effects can do. The story about the frog is that, if you put a live frog in a frying pan and gradually raise the heat, the frog will not jump out. The gradual accumulation of heat is deadly to the frog. While the accumulation of mercury in the system may not lead to death, it often affects your health so subtly that it goes unnoticed until the damage is severe.

Dr. Dreher is a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology (IAOMT). IAOMT is the first resource for information about the push for mercury free dentistry. As a member committed to lifelong learning, Dr. Dreher has continued to work with IAOMT to gain the most up to date information on safe removal and replacement of mercury fillings, and environmentally safe ways of disposing of the extracted toxin. If you’re considering removing amalgam fillings, Dr. Dreher is here to help you make an informed decision.
