The Miami Dentist Blog has covered heavy metal toxins before. These metallic chemicals are everywhere, and we ingest them more frequently then we think. To make matters worse, heavy metals accumulate in the body. Over time, this accumulation may lead to serious health conditions.
The 60 degree chill may have come to rest over Miami, but warmth still burns as Valentine’s Day approaches. February 14th is just around the corner; this year, consider giving the gift of beauty and confidence. Beginning January 15th, Assure a Smile will offer the Valentine’s Invisalign Special, your chance to enroll yourself or a loved one in the clear braces system that has created over a million smiling faces.
It’s nearly everywhere: in our water, mouth rinses, and now toothpastes. Fluoride has been the go-to chemical for cavity prevention for over 50 years. Now, however, the Center for Disease Control warns that the chemical may be too prevalent. Too much fluoride may lead to serious oral health problems including hidden caries and fluorosis.
Since the 1945 communities have been adding fluoride to water supplies. At first, the purpose was to improve general public health by treating water to help strengthen teeth. Now, however, modern research shows fluoride treatments can pose serious dental risks. Overuse of fluoride may cause hidden caries, illusive areas of plaque that may cause major dental problems.
Heavy metals accumulate once ingested, making them a serious danger. Tiny amounts of heavy metals, like the mercury in tuna, embed themselves in the body. Over time, the concentration of these metals can lead to the development of disease. Heavy metal detoxification, however, can help you regularly remove heavy metals from your body.
Comments by Dr. Ted Herrmann:
Our Miami Dentist Blog has reviewed in great detail the dangers of heavy metals like mercury. We’ve suggested considering silver amalgam filling removal as a treatment to prevent the development of serious health risks, like auto-immune disease. In this post, we will explore several other ways in which the body can naturally flush these toxins.
Once the toxicity of mercury enters the bloodstream, it races through the blood and to each major organ. The damage that inhaled mercury can cause is permanent and deadly, however, it can be avoided altogether. Consulting a dentist about safe mercury filling removal is the best way to avoid developing extremely harmful health conditions.
COMMENTS BY DR. TED HERRMANN:
We know that mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive chemical on Earth (i). We know that this chemical vaporizes under pressure and heat. We also know that, when vaporized, this chemical is tasteless, odorless, and easily inhaled without notice. Why, then, does it make sense to have such a chemical in your mouth?
Comments by Dr. Ted Herrmann:
Mercury is more toxic than lead, cadmium, and arsenic. What many people are unaware of, however, is just how close they come to it each day. In truth, if you have a traditional silver filling in any of your teeth, you have a little bit of mercury there too.
