/EINPresswire.com/ Larry Cook, a natural living advocate and author of The Beginner’s Guide to Natural Living, shares on his natural living website why visiting a holistic dentist is best for one’s health, and a great smile.

Perhaps the most important reason to visit a holistic dentist—also called a biocompatible dentist or a mercury free dentist—is because holistic dentists do not use mercury-based fillings. Mercury amalgam fillings—also called silver fillings—contain about 50% mercury. The use of mercury in conventional dentistry is extremely controversial because mercury is 500 times more toxic than lead and there is extensive, documented evidence that mercury vapor is released from mercury amalgam fillings. No amount of mercury is safe for consumption.

Conventional dental authorities state that elemental mercury is rendered harmless in fillings because it is chemically bound to the silver. However, numerous studies prove that mercury vapor does escape from silver fillings and that the vapor is then absorbed into the body. Chewing food, and eating hot foods or liquids, increases absorption. This ongoing exposure to mercury can cause a build up of mercury in the body and will contribute to health problems if the immune system is compromised.

On the other hand, a holistic dentist uses composite resin fillings that are not only much safer for the body, but they look better too. Holistic dentists can safely remove amalgam fillings and perform all other normal dental procedures.

Mr. Cook says, “Visiting a holistic dentist can reduce your heavy metal toxicity levels, which will in turn improve your health. Therefore I highly recommend you visit a holistic dentist so as to take another natural living step towards vibrant health.”
