Mercury Free Fillings From an Integrative Dentist
Avoid potential toxins with metal free fillings in Manhattan, NY.
Over 100 million Americans to date have received amalgam fillings, commonly known as metal or silver fillings. While these fillings contain familiar materials like tin and zinc, they are also roughly 50% mercury. Although the ADA suggests these materials to be safe when combined, there is startling evidence that mercury vapor is released when there is any pressure. If you have amalgam fillings in your mouth, this vapor is released when you chew, drink, brush, and grind your teeth. These vapors cause toxic exposure to the central nervous system, which can result in mercury poisoning, of which symptoms include memory loss, anxiety, autoimmune disorders, migraines, and problems with motor coordination.
Due to the potential toxicity of these materials, Dr. Gerry
has been using mercury free fillings in New York since 1984. Instead, he used tooth colored ceramic
and composite materials
that bond the tooth together, unlike amalgams.
The concern of hazardous particles within amalgams does not stop at mercury. Other metals in these fillings disrupt the flow of energy in the mouth, upon which particles are released into the bloodstream after being absorbed through the intestines. Dr. Curatola strongly believes in using only the most bio-compatible materials available to minimize your exposure to any potential toxins that may cause negative systemic problems. By offering metal-free, mercury-free, BPA-free, and fluoride-free alternatives to today’s more traditional dental treatments, Dr. Gerry removes the threat of potential toxins. As an extra measure, we provide compatibility testing in Manhattan, NY, attempting to identify the safest choice for each person, before placing any materials.
Removal of Amalgam Fillings
Although receiving amalgam fillings can be detrimental to your immune system, it is important to have them removed by a mercury free dentist that takes special precautions. Dr. Gerry implements a safe mercury removal protocol to protect his patients, so they are not exposed to this harmful neurotoxin upon its removal.
In fact, Dr. Curatola has met many patients that became sicker upon mercury removal when no precautionary steps were taken by dentists that are untrained in safe-mercury removal practices. You should talk to your dentist on the Upper East Side about removing amalgams if you:
- have 8 or more fillings.
- grind your teeth.
- frequently eat acidic foods
- drink soda regularly.
