Mercury Toxicity: Now Is The Perfect Time To Get Rid Of The Poison

If you’ve ever wanted the best time to have your metal fillings (aka amalgams or mercury fillings) removed, then today is a good day to start… because just a few weeks ago, the Food and Drug Administration changed their pitiful stance on the toxic substance.

Previously, the FDA and American Dental Association agreed that mercury toxicity from dental amalgam fillings were safe, despite known facts about the toxicity in humans. Debates over the safety of amalgam fillings have been staged for decades with many individuals, doctors and dentists included, rallying against the placement of these poisonous fillings.

However, the stubbornness of these large associations still insisted (until a few weeks ago) that it is unlawful for dentist and other medical providers to recommend removing mercury fillings for “health”reasons.

But, since being sued, the FDA has changed their view “slightly” on the topic and it shows on their website. We hope to see the ADA and state dental boards changing their stance.

What does this mean to you?

Well… now you can go to your dentist and have them removed without the dentist fearing litigation. You can have your amalgams removed for the purpose of health. Run a google search on mercury toxicity or visit

This association actually has a protocol for removing amalgams safely. Unfortunately, about 99% of dentists don’t follow up but I’m optimistic they will in the near future with this ruling.

A couple features of the protocol involve a change in technique when removing amalgams… such as using a rubber dam and breaking the fillings in large chunks. You should also have a mercury vapor ionizer because it has shown that the most mercury is removed during placement and removal of the filling.

Because of this recently news, I’m going to dig deeper into the subject and determine what I can do to help my patients to safely remove the mercury fillings. I may also write a report about it… we’ll see. It depends on how much time I have in the coming weeks. If you want to be notified, just sign up for my newsletter.
