Mercury is pretty bad for you. Wait, that’s a terrible understatement. Mercury is literally one of the worst thing you can have in or around your body. It’s so bad that the incredibly small amounts in fish, especially sushi, lead doctors to tell pregnant women not to eat it.
But did you know mercury is in a lot of our fillings? Every time you eat, drink, brush, anything with these fillings a little bit of mercury gets into your system. And it adds up. Literally. The mercury that gets into your system stays there because your body doesn’t recognize it as bad. Overall, the amount is negligible, but there are a ton of other sources of negligible mercury that all add up, so what’s the alternative?
It’s really not that hard to get your fillings replaced, if you have mercury fillings, with safe ones, you just need to find the right dentist. Check out reviews and call ahead while making sure that they take the necessary safety procedures to remove the dangerous material.
