Hazards of Conventional Dentistry

Dentistry is often a dreaded experience that everyone faces sooner or later. Finding non-toxic, or less toxic, substitutes for the products normally used is just a small start. There are countless pieces of information and life style changes that will increase safety and perhaps protect health. The two most egregious “dental” materials are discussed below but there are many more that should be added to the list.


When we are warned to brush our teeth regularly and to remember to floss, we generally assume that these measures are supposed to protect us from tooth decay, but we are seldom warned to avoid toothpaste containing fluoride, a deadly poison with no usefulness whatsoever in preventing decay. In fact, it causes fluorosis and increases the risk of many life-threatening diseases such as osteosarcoma.

It is dangerous even when found at the level of one part per million but the effects are often not immediate and may take years to precipitate a clinically detectable medical condition. Massive fluoridation of water combined with its presence in countless dental materials constitutes a kind of involuntary medication that affects the endocrine system, acuity, and possibly the ability to express intelligence.

Fluoride is found in many bonding agents, the cements used to attach inlays, onlays, and crowns, but it is also found in toothpaste and dental floss. There are many areas of the world where fluoride in banned and countless law suits to prevent further use of this deadly substance.


The consequences of medical use of mercury are even more sinister than those of fluoride. Mercury is not only hugely toxic, it is completely unstable at the temperatures inside the mouth and elsewhere in the body.
