  • Dental Fillings Excrete Unsafe Levels of Mercury

    A February 2011 journal article published in Science of the Total Environment has found that around 120 million people (approximately 1/3 U.S. population) with amalgam dental fillings exceed the California EPA "safe" doses of mercury level exposure. The study states that, according to 2001–2004 population statistics, there are about 181 million people in America (including children as young as two and adults as old as 90) who have a total of approximately 1.4 billion fillings in their mouths. Most of these are amalgam fillings. Since data was available on the weight and prevalence of tooth filling in Americans, the researchers could look at increases of mercury in the urine of those with filled teeth. They could then estimate the exposure to mercury that occurred due to fillings in five age groups. The results showed that dental amalgam does release mercury into the bodies of those who have these fillings. In fact, reports by the World Health Organization (WHO, 1991) and Health Canada (1996) confirm that dental amalgam is the largest source of mercury exposure for people who have these fillings. This exposure is not just a one-time occurrence either. It is continuous exposure that exceeds safe levels.


  • Bob’s Chipped Tooth: Poor Nutrition Leads to Poor Dental Health

    Meet Bob

    Bob is a 37-year-old man with some health complications. He has Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and is overweight. His daily food consumption generally consists of boxed and packaged foods and artificial sweeteners. These types of foods are often considered normal in today’s "civilized" countries; however, they may play a key role in the dental problems that plague many people like Bob. In order to understand this, we should break down at least one of Bob’s meals, and explore the problems with the foods he is and is not consuming. We can use Bob’s breakfast choices to do this.


  • Study Shows Many Dentists Aggressively Overtreat

    A journal article review published in the International Dental Journal has found that many dentists are often subjecting patients to unnecessary treatments that are ineffective. The researchers state:


  • Profits Placed Before the Youngest of Patients

    An investigative report was done on a chain of dental offices known as Smile Smiles which is located in the US. What the reporter uncovered was a history of dentists conducting themselves unprofessionally and unethically, as they treated the youngest of patients. A former employee of the chain let the reporter know what was occurring behind closed doors in the dental offices, so the journalist began to search for more information to substantiate the claims of the former employee. After finding other employees who were willing to speak about what was occurring in the offices, the reporter was slowly able to discover the horror of what the children were being subjected too.


  • The Victims of Unnecessary Dentistry

    Many people put their trust in the medical professionals that they visit, which includes their dentist. However, stories that have emerged over the last several years are sending a cautious message to patients: don't immediately trust everything your dentist tells you. This message contradicts how many people may feel. They want to genuinely trust that the dentist they visit is looking out for their best interests and will conduct themselves professionally and ethically. While there are reputable dentists that are concerned for their patient's well-being, there are those who are simply in it for monetary gain.


  • New Flyers Help Spread Awareness of Fluoride Dangers

    The Alliance of Fluoride-free Advocates has released a new flyer that is helping spread awareness of the dangers of fluoride. The flyer shares important information about the effects of fluoride and why it is critical that more people take action and start saying no to fluoride.


  • Why the Ultimate Mouthwash Won’t Really Cure Tooth Decay

    Researchers have concluded years of testing and are nearing the time when they will release a new mouthwash that has been coined the “ultimate mouthwash.” The mouthwash has been formulated to target the bacteria Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans). A new study, published in Caries Research, found that the mouthwash was effective at killing Streptococcus mutans in the mouth. These findings have led researchers to believe that this new mouthwash may completely “wipe out tooth decay during our lifetime.”
