Biological dentists are more and more in demand as the connection between oral health and overall health can no longer be denied.
It is now well known that an infection in your mouth, even hidden under a root canal filling, puts your body in a compromised state. Also the mercury in silver amalgam really does cause disease as it deposits in bodily tissues over time.
Once you realize your dental amalgam needs replacing or a root canal needs to come out, it is extremely important that you choose the right professional to do the work.
Below are several organizations that can educate you on mercury poisoning, root canals, and many other aspects of safe dentistry. Each also maintains a database of qualified holistic dentists, so you can find a trained professional to meet your needs.
The IAOMT is a group of dentists, physicians, and researchers who are involved in peer-reviewed scientific research, education, and the promotion of biological dentistry. The IAOMT encourages the use of biocompatible materials and appropriate protocols to ensure whole-body patient health. Search their database for an IAOMT dentist.
Hal Huggins, DDS, MS found that removing dental amalgam or root canal teeth could cause the onset of autoimmune disease if not done properly, so he developed the Huggins protocol that potentially gives far more benefit than risk. The website provides information on diseases related to mercury poisoning and inspiring testimonials. The group can also help you find a Huggins protocol dentist.
Dr. Tom McGuire's Dental Wellness Institute is dedicated to educating the public on dental amalgam health hazards, mercury detoxification, and the relationship between oral and overall health. You can find a mercury-safe dentist in their database.
