Article Review:

In this health news article, the topic of discussion is the safety of mercury or amalgam fillings on your health.  Since traditional amalgams are created from metal, there is the risk of mercury leaking from the metals and into the body.  The toxins from mercury can cause illness.

In this article, patients shared their experiences with mercury fillings, and compared those experiences with how they felt when the fillings were replaced with ceramic ones. Some stated that while they had amalgams, they felt sick and could taste metal when they were eating.

Mercury exposure is known to cause memory loss, mood swings, tremors, anxiety, and arthritis.  Because of the potential health risks that are associated with mercury, many dentists are recommending that patients have their fillings changed.

At Pure Dental Health, we offer porcelain fillings to our patients to alleviate the risk of mercury poisoning.  These all-white fillings blend in seamlessly with the color of your natural teeth, so you have cosmetic appeal with this option as well.  No one can tell that you have any fillings!

With Pure Dental Health, we are concerned about you and your overall health.  To learn more about how removing silver amalgams could be better for your health, read the article above and contact our team at Pure Dental Health.
