Dr. McGuire's Video Proves Mercury Vapor is Released from Amalgam Fillings
I felt it appropriate to start this section on safe amalgam filling removal by providing you access 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 quantitatively demonstrates the actual amount of mercury released from an amalgam by a common means of stimulation, tooth brushing.
As you'll see in the Video, brushing a medium sized 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 also offers evidence of the toxicity of mercury and is well worth the few minutes of your time it takes to view my YouTube Video: 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.
While mercury vapor is released from amalgam fillings during many forms of common stimulation, such as brushing, chewing and grinding, significantly greater amounts are released when an 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. I believe it will provide the background information you will need to know why mercury free and mercury safe dentists offer these safe removal protocols to minimize exposure to toxic mercury vapor.

Mercury Safe Dentistry: Safe Amalgam Filling Removal
The majority of people I consult with are unaware mercury amalgam (silver) dental fillings release one of the most poisonous substances we will ever be exposed to. This lack of awareness can be devastating to their health because the mercury released from them can cause, contribute, or worsen every disease and health problem we will face. Because there is a vast difference in how amalgam silver fillings are removed in a mercury free dental office compared to a pro-amalgam office, I feel it important to describe the protocol for safely removing amalgam fillings.
While there is no universal consensus regarding the safest way to remove mercury amalgam fillings but one outstanding organization has established what I believe to be the safest protocol for minimizing a patient's exposure to mercury. 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 free and mercury safe dentists 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 mercury vapor that is released when amalgam fillings are 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.
Health Improvements from Amalgam Filling Removal and Mercury Detoxification
For many tens of millions of people who are suffering from the adverse side-effects of chronic mercury poisoning 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: 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 on the fetus, nursing baby, and child you'll want to know how mercury from amalgam fillings can cause or contribute to learning, mental, and developmental disorders: Mercury from Amalgam Fillings and Autism.
