Why we do not use “Silver” Fillings In Beverly Hills

FACT: “Silver” or amalgam fillings contains from 48-55 percent mercury, 33-35 percent silver, and various amount of copper, tin, zinc and other metals. Since mercury is the major component of the material, any representation of the material should include the word “mercury”. Thus , a Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist will refer to them as mercury dental fillings.

FACT: Mercury is the powerful poison. Published research shown that mercury is more toxic than lead, cadmium, and even arsenic. Furthermore, there is no known toxic threshold for mercury vapour and world renowned mercury toxicologists have stated that no amount of exposure to mercury vapour can be considered totally harmless.

FACT: Scientific research has demonstrated that mercury, even in small amounts can damage the brain, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, thyrod glands, adrenal gland, blood cells, enzymes, and harmones, and supress the body’s immune system. Mercury has been shown to pass the placental membrane in pregnent woman and cause permanent damage to the brain of the developing baby.

FACT: Mercury is continually released from Mercury dental fillings in the form of the mercury vapour and abraded particles. This process is stipulated and can be increased as much as 15 fold by chewing, brushing, hot liquid etc. The World Health Organisation has recently concluded that the daily intake of mercury from amalgam detal fillings exceeded the combined intake of mercury derived from air, water and food (including fish).

FACT: The mercury vapour released from mercury dental fillings is absorbed very rapidly and thoroughly in your body, primarily by inhalation and swallowing, so the best Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist would not use them.

FACT: In human autopsy studies, it has been found that there is a direct correlation between the amount of mercury found in the brain and the number and surfaces of mercury fillings in the teeth.

FACT: Mercury causes normal intestinal microflora to become mercury resistant and antibiotic resistant. Mercury resistant becteria causes mercury in the intestinal tract to be converted back into vapour and recycled back into body. Antibiotic resistant is becoming a major medical concern.

FACT: Recent scientific research has shown high levels of mercury in the brains of individuals dead from Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Other research is demonstrating mercury can cause similar pathological effects in the brain, as that seen int he Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS) and AD. Laboratory studies of spinal fluid from ALS and AD patient’s has confirmed that mercury inhibits key brain detoxification enzyme systems.
