Mercury Myth™

Revealing the True Health Effects of Mercury

Shiny silver tooth fillings were quite common in dental procedures of the past, but you may be surprised to learn that the materials used in those fillings have been linked to many negative long-term health effects. The reason is MERCURY. Doctors and health scientists have conducted numerous studies in to how mercury is damaging to our health, and the results are conclusive that metal toxicity can cause harm to your nervous system, brain, kidneys, and other aspects of your health.

Remove harmful mercury & restore your health

If you have any existing fillings that may contain mercury, it is important that you have them removed and replaced as soon as possible. We have developed an effective process to remove and replace these fillings and aid in the detoxification of your body. Known as Mercury Rescue™, this methodology involves collaborating with a team of trained health professionals, well-versed in the treatment of mercury toxicity.

First, we take steps to remove the dental materials containing mercury using a very thorough approach. The International Association of Oral Medicine and Toxicology ( has developed a set of strict protocols for dental practices that we follow regarding the removal of old dental materials containing mercury. These protocols ensure the safety of the patient and our staff to prevent any accidental exposure.

Once the materials containing mercury have been safely removed and disposed of, a new dental restoration is done to get your smile back in style using only the best in safe, alternative materials. Once your restoration is complete, your Mercury Rescue™ treatment may be followed up with additional supportive care including nutritional guidance and detoxification regimens.
