(NaturalHealth365) Oral health is an important part of your overall wellbeing. Unfortunately, “modern dentistry” has quietly been the source of serious health risks including, heavy metal toxicity, systemic infections and neurological (cancer-causing) stress – due to the use of toxic metals and root canals.
In truth, many of the ills associated with conventional dentistry stem from the use of mercury-based ‘silver’ fillings – which typically contain up to 50 percent mercury, one of the most toxic substances in existence. And, to make matter worse, research has shown that other dental procedures run an astonishing risk of systemic infection – which can lead to everything from cardiovascular disease to deadly pneumonia.

Proof: Systemic disease symptoms are triggered by an unhealthy mouth
The idea that many illnesses have gotten their start due to infections of the mouth and tongue is not a new concept. As far back as the turn of the century, renowned dental and medical researchers examined available evidence and came to the conclusion that most of the chronic, systemic diseases seen in humans came about because of infections in the tonsils and teeth. What’s more, symptoms are nearly impossible to detect.
But now the connection between oral infections and systemic diseases is under the spotlight. Researchers today are beginning to recognize that periodontitis and related infections are the root cause of many systemic diseases.
In truth, commonly performed dental procedures can produce havoc with oral health – leading to infection, sometimes with dire consequences. For example, improperly pulled teeth can be a source of cavitations or jawbone infections.
Research has shown an association between a number of serious illnesses and periodontal disease or other dental related infections, including:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Stroke and other arterial disease
- Diseases of the blood vessels
- Bacterial pneumonia
- Adverse pregnancy outcome, including gestational diabetes, stillbirth, neonatal death, preterm birth, small for gestational age, low Apgar score, meconium aspiration, large for gestational age, and macrosomia.
The risky business of root canals revealed
Root canals are among the most often performed dental procedures. But they are also very common sources of bacteria and fungi. Those potentially dangerous organisms move from the mouth to circulating blood, opening the door for infection throughout the body.
Once present in the bloodstream, bacteria and fungi can potentially become the source of countless health risks. For example, it is not unusual for patients suffering from autoimmune diseases affecting the heart to become vastly improved once a root canal infected tooth is properly removed.
Scientific studies have shown that dental scaling and root canal treatment, two commonly performed procedures, result in a significantly higher risk of mouth infections. But the risks don’t end there. Researchers have also documented a likely link between root canals and cancer.
That risk is so likely, that many cancer treatment facilities refuse to begin treatment of patients until any root canals have been removed by extracting the affected teeth. Often, such extractions reveal layers of infection, otherwise unnoticeable.
Be warned: Common dental filings are a life-threatening procedure
Having a cavity filled is considered routine. But, would you choose to have a cavity filled if you knew you were putting your health on the line?
Approximately 50 percent a ‘silver’ filling contains mercury. In fact, this level of mercury exposure – every day – commonly exceeds the United States EPA health guideline for daily mercury exposure. In addition, dental amalgams release significant amounts of silver, tin, and copper, all with toxic health effects.
Just like bacteria from dental procedures can move throughout the body via the bloodstream, the same holds true for toxic traces of mercury.
Bottom line: Before doing any more dental work – get educated to protect your health.
