A treatment may be common but not necessarily healthy. Silver fillings made partially from mercury, and fluoride treatments as a preventive measure, have been falling out of favor. The ill effects of mercury have been well-documented; however, patients may not be as aware of the threats of mercury exposure during the removal of fillings that contain this toxic element. Likewise, patients may not be as aware of concerns over fluoride. Derived from a toxic element, fluorine, the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology has advised on fluoride’s link to several serious medical conditions affecting bone, brain, reproductive, and endocrine health. Furthermore, fluoride’s efficacy is questionable.
As it relates to the mercury issue, The Maine Center for Dental Medicine follows IAOMT protocols when removing metal fillings and replacing them with non-metal materials. Built on a foundation of preventive care, Drs. Imam and Khan also advocate for effective and safe alternatives to fluoride such as Xylitol. The Center has an on-staff nutritional counselor, Cathy. She will assess any nutritional habits that could be putting your teeth and gums at risk of decay or disease.
