    Default Your Filling is Killing?

    Mercury is considered the most toxic substance to the human body after plutonium.

    Yet most of us have a mouthful of it sitting there in the perfect distribution spot being munched, crunched, ground up, brushed vigorously and vaporizing in a sluice of saliva two inches from our brain.

    Could mercury fillings be the lead baths of our time?

    Neither have I, i'm quite happy to say.

    The procedure sounds horrendous.

    I have one filling and its resin. I didn't want mercury in my mouth.

    But that's just because you have no teeth.

    Lucky you. Apparently it can be hazardous having them removed which means it must be a hazard to have them at all.

    The thread is prompted after reading this article.

    That's what happens when you eat too many cookies.

    You have no idea how freaky I am on oral hygiene. My dentist was more shocked that I had a cavity than I was.

    I unfortunately know from personal experience the damage that mercury fillings can cause.

    The use of mercury fillings today makes no sense when there are safer alternatives available. I know that in the UK NHS patients have an option of 'silver' or composite fillings. I m guessing public patients here don't have the same option ?
