Dr. Tom McGuire's Video Proves Mercury Vapor is Released from Amalgam Fillings
I felt it appropriate to start this section on the safe removal of mercury amalgam silver fillings by providing a link to my YouTube Video, Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth. This amazing video clearly demonstrates that not only is mercury vapor released from amalgams but also objectively demonstrates the actual amount of mercury released from a mercury amalgam silver filling by a common means of stimulation - tooth brushing.
As you'll see in the Video, brushing a medium sized mercury amalgam filling will release more mercury vapor than allowed by governmental regulatory agencies at the workplace! The Video also compares the amount of mercury vapor released to other forms of stimulation, by the patient and at the dental office - and what you can do about it!
There are many scientific studies that prove this, but it's one thing to read about it and yet another to actually see how much mercury vapor being released from an amalgam filling by an EPA approved mercury vapor analyzer. The short video proves the toxicity of mercury and is well worth the few minutes of your time it takes to view Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth. Don't forget to tell your friends and family about this video - or a dentist you'd like to help educate about this subject. You can also access the video by searching YouTube for either Tom McGuire, DDS or The Poison in Your Teeth.
Toxic mercury vapor is released from amalgam fillings during many forms of common stimulation, such as tooth brushing, chewing and tooth grinding. But significantly greater amounts are released when a mercury amalgam filling is removed unsafely. The following two sections introduces the many reasons why it is important to have amalgam fillings removed in a safe way. It will provide the background information you will need to know why you need a mercury safe dentists who offers safe removal protocols to minimize the unnecessary and excessive exposure to toxic mercury vapor.

The majority of people I consult with are unaware mercury amalgam (silver) dental fillings release one of the most poisonous, naturally occurring substances we will ever be exposed to. This lack of awareness can be devastating to their health because the poisonous mercury vapor released from amalgam silver fillings can cause, contribute, or worsen every disease and health problem you will ever have to deal with. Because there is a vast difference in how amalgam silver fillings are removed in a Mercury Safe Dental office compared to a dentist who still puts in mercury amalgam fillings (and doesn't remove them safely) I feel it important to describe in detail the accepted protocols for safely removing mercury amalgam fillings.
While there is no universally accepted consensus regarding the safest way to remove mercury amalgam fillings one outstanding organization has established what I believe to be the safest protocol for minimizing a patient's exposure to mercury vapor when amalgam fillings are removed. Established by New Directions Dentistry (NDD), it is the most thorough protocol yet developed and its protocol is used as a guideline by many Mercury Safe Dentists and Mercury FreeDdentists as the basis of their own safe removal program.

Symptoms and Diseases Related to Chronic Mercury Poisoning
There are many reasons why you would want to minimize your exposure to the toxic mercury vapor that is released when amalgam fillings are unsafely removed. There is no doubt that mercury is an extraordinarily poisonous substance and no doubt that it is released from amalgam fillings by normal actions such as tooth brushing and chewing gum. But it is also important to understand just how many symptoms and diseases are related, directly or indirectly, to chronic mercury poisoning. For more information on that subject Click Here.
Mercury Detoxification: Health Improvements from Chronic Mercury Poisoning & Amalgam Fillings
For the many tens of millions of people who are suffering from the adverse effects of chronic mercury poisoning from amalgam silver fillings it may not be enough just to minimize exposure to mercury vapor during amalgam filling removal. Most of those who are now suffering from mercury related health issues should also consider initiating a mercury detoxification program. Mercury Detoxification: The Natural Way to Remove Mercury from Your Body will be an invaluable guide to you if this is a path you chose to take. A majority of people will see improvements in symptoms and diseases (over time) related to chronic mercury poisoning just by having these toxic fillings removed, but for others it will take a mercury detoxification program to get the results they seek. To review a number of studies that clearly show the health improvements in a large number of mercury related symptoms after amalgam fillings have been removed and a detoxification program is undertaken Click Here: Chronic Mercury Poisoning: Symptoms and Diseases.
Mothers and Chronic Mercury Poisoning
If you are a mother, or mother to be, it is extremely important for you to fully understand the effects of mercury poisoning on the fetus, nursing baby, and child.
