10 chronic health problems caused by dental amalgam fillings loaded with mercury

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

amalgam-fillings(NaturalHealth365) Cases of chronic disease have reached epidemic proportions in the U.S., with issues related to the immune system high on the list. These diseases have all been associated with mercury-based dental amalgam fillings.

Dental amalgam fillings contain up to a 54 percent ratio of the neurotoxin mercury. The National Institute for Health, through an extensive epidemiological study, showed a high correlation between dental amalgam fillings and chronic disease.  Yet, the FDA and other health agencies refuse to do anything about this huge public health risk.

The public is waking up to the dangers of dental amalgam fillings

The following are the top 10 types of chronic disease caused by the mercury in these toxic dental fillings:

1. Autoimmune disease

Autoimmune issues linked with mercury fillings include arthritis, MS, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, muscle tremors, joint and muscle pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn’s disease, lupus, endometriosis and diabetes.

2. Neurological problems

Neuropathy, paresthesia, memory loss, ADD, epilepsy, autism, headaches, migraines, dizziness and vertigo are all associated with mercury fillings.

3. Mood disorders

Amalgam fillings have also been associated with anxiety, depression, insomnia, schizophrenia, anger control issues, and mental confusion.

4. Immune system dysfunction and cancer

Immune system problems like asthma, chemical sensitivities, skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, sinus issues and susceptibility to infections can also be caused by dental fillings loaded with mercury.  The risk of breast cancer, leukemia, and other cancer types tend to go way up with these fillings in the mouth.

5. Cardiovascular conditions

Amalgam fillings are associated with hypertension, arteriosclerosis, angina and abnormally rapid heart rate (tachycardia.)

6. Stomach and digestive problems

Research has also found a link between mercury fillings and leaky gut syndrome, malabsorption of minerals, and blocked cellular enzymatic processes.

7. Hormonal imbalances

Hypothyroidism, adrenal gland issues, Hashimoto’s disease, hair loss, prostate issues and urinary problems have all been linked with mercury fillings.

8. Reproductive difficulties

Mercury has been connected to reduced sperm count, infertility, PMS, genital tract problems, spontaneous abortions, birth defects, and learning disabilities in children.

9. Oral health issues

Despite their intention and purpose of repairing cavities in teeth, mercury fillings can actually cause oral health problems. Mercury vapor can accumulate within the gums, tooth roots, jaw and oral tissue, leading to a range of health problems like periodontal disease, halitosis, oral ketosis and oral lichen planus.

10. Vision and hearing problems

Mercury fillings have also been associated with hearing loss, tinnitus, and vision issues including eye inflammation, myopia, macular degeneration, cataracts, astigmatism, iritis, color blindness and other vision disturbances.

If you suspect your dental fillings could be at the root of your chronic disease, they can be removed and replaced with fillings that do not contain mercury.  However, many integrative healthcare professionals warn against disrupting the mercury during filling removal – which could result in high amounts of mercury vapor released during the process.

Bottom line: If you decide to have them removed and replaced, be sure to seek the services of a proven, experienced dental professional – preferably a holistically-oriented dentist trained by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. (IAOMT)

    It is strange that there are plenty of dentists who still use mercury fillings. By now everyone should have the news-MERCURY IS TOXIC.

  • Normalyn Curtis

    I had all my mercury fillings removed. However, they already caused me some lingering problems. When I had them in my mouth pieces broke off after years of use. How can they claim it is safe, when you can ingest some of the filling.

  • Robin Kaplan

    To think I let them placed mercury fillings in my child’s cavities. These were for the first set, which was due to fall out to make room for the second set. If the dentist didn’t fill these small cavities he would have left money on the table.

    Thank you Jonathan for bringing this topic to the surface again. However, if you are going to have amalgams removed, MAKE SURE it’s done by someone who is qualified and knows what they’re doing. Mine were removed by a former dentist who did NOT follow the protocol at all. Consequently, I am dealing with health problems which I attribute – at least in part – to this incompetent dentist. Finding a biological dentist is key.

    Mercury in teeth is as toxic or more so that mercury in any other form including vaccines.

  • Jae Garrett

    Even worse when you chew gum drink hot liquids etc…The Mercury Vapor from these amalgams are the worst~

  • Stuart Scheckner

    My book, Time Bomb From Within, on my personal experience with mercury poisoning as a dentist, should strongly convince you of the insidious health danger of mercury in dental amalgams as well as in other forms such as Thimerosal in vaccines. http://www.timebombfromwithin. com

    I felt they were contributing to some of my chronic health problems, and had mine removed by a safe dentist. I can’t say for sure how much mercury contributed to my health problems, but I can say that I feel my body was able to really start healing after I had mine removed. I now no longer deal with chronic fatigue and many other symptoms that I used to have.

    Very good discussion of the hazards of dental mercury! DAMS, Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions, is a non-profit that focuses on educating the public on these dental-health issues. Readers may call DAMS at 651-644-4572 to ask questions and to request a DAMS information packet that includes a list of holistic dentists in their state or province. Education of the public is the main focus of DAMS.

    #1 is not right. “CFS” was never associated with amalgam fillings.
    People are just tossing in “CFS” on an assumption that CFS is anything that causes fatigue plus a few symptoms. That is exactly the kind of confusion Stephen Straus of the NIH wanted to create.

    THIS is the real story of CFS.
