Old Silver Amalgam Fillings Must Go

If you are still dealing with old silver amalgam fillings it’s time to call and schedule a dental appointment.

Your Westlake dentist is a mercury free dental practice that cares about whole health, not just oral health.

Silver Amalgam Fillings Can Make You Sick

Dr. Steven Greenman practices metal free dentistry. That means you won’t be walking around like a ticking time bomb. For example, if you have a cracked silver amalgam filling you are more susceptible to mercury poisoning.

Although the FDA and the ADA say that amalgam is safe they don’t say anything about damaged silver amalgam fillings.

If you have a cracked, chipped or broken silver amalgam filling you are in the high risk category when it comes to mercury poisoning caused from a broken silver filling.

Mercury Free Dentistry in Westlake

Going mercury free is one of the healthiest things you can do for your oral and overall health. Mercury free dentistry is the safe way to provide dental care for you and your family.

Your Westlake Village family dentist practices proactive dentistry and that includes mercury free dentistry.

According to Dr. Greenman, people with old silver amalgam fillings often suffer from, “Mysterious,” ailments. However, once those patients have gone mercury free they are free from illness as well. It is truly amazing how much the mouth and body is connected.

The Mouth and Body Connection

Because your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body your old restorations play a huge roll in overall health. For instance, if you have cracked old silver amalgam fillings you are in the high risk category when it comes to mercury poisoning.

With that being said, it isn’t just your fillings that affect your overall health. People who suffer from gum disease, or more importantly, periodontitis, have a higher risk of disease such as COPD.

Your Gums and Body

People who suffer from periodontal disease have pockets between the teeth and gums. Those pockets are loaded with bacteria that will eventually make its way to your heart through your bloodstream. When that happens you could find yourself in the ER suffering from a heart attack.

Because the plaque attaches itself to your vessels it makes it more difficult for the blood to get to your heart. If your gum disease gets to this point it makes you the perfect candidate for a stroke.
