Biological dentists recognize the impact of toxic materials and relate it to dental and physiological health. These dentists use materials and procedures in their practices that are non-toxic and systemically compatible. They see the dental condition in relation to overall health. What is the most toxic ingredient used by conventional dentists?
“Silver” amalgam fillings are 50 percent mercury. Mercury is the most toxic, non-radioactive element on the earth. Published research demonstrates that mercury is more toxic than lead, cadmium, or arsenic.
Dr. Louis Chang, toxicologist at the University of Arkansas, reported nerve damage occurred at a mere one microgram of mercury. Likewise, toxicologist professor Joshep Levisky at the University of Colorado once stated when asked about the ‘safe level of mercury’, “One atom kills one cell. You tell me the safe level of mercury”.
