But, it’s taken a long time for the general health system to promote the removal and ban of silver amalgam fillings, even though the side effects are proven to be detrimental to patients’ health. The European Union’s Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) said that when it comes to children and pregnant patients, “alternative materials to amalgam should be the first choice.” Read more on how to eliminate mercury toxins from your mouth and life.

Why Yogis Will Love Holistic Dentistry

For Yogis, this includes using stretches and breathing techniques to unveil the connection between the mental and the physical. In the same way, holistic dentistry seeks to connect oral conditions with the overall health of a patient’s body systems. Both practices seek to understand cause and effect relationships and recognize that the genuine change—be it mental or physical—requires more than mere reactionary quick fixes.

Dental Amalgam 101

Dental amalgam is the proper term to refer to the silver material that is used in dental procedures like fillings. This material is actually a combination of mercury and at least one other metal, like tin. Invented in France in the early 1800s, dental amalgam has remained a popular filling agent because of its strength.
