I am fortunate to live near the office of Dr. Mark Breiner, a holistic dentist who doesn’t use mercury, fluoride or BPA. He has been campaigning against mercury amalgams since the 1970’s. He’s written a book, “Whole-Body Dentistry: A Complete Guide to Understanding the Impact of Dentistry on Total Health”.
In it, he explains the dangers of mercury, including the electrical problems caused by them. Because they are metal, mercury fillings affect the electrical energy along that meridian. Each tooth sits on a particular acupuncture meridian, so an unhealthy tooth can affect the systems and organs related to that meridian.
Before he removed my mercury fillings, he measured the voltage, current and power provided by each of them. Voltages ranged from 40-220 MV, currents from 1-4 MA, and MW x seconds from -0.01 to -0.33. Our bodies are electrochemical in nature, and these mercury fillings throw an electrical monkey wrench into the mix.
Dr. Breiner also practices homeopathy as a means of helping the body detoxify from the mercury, as well as from other toxins lurking in the body.
Holistic dentistry, therefore, is a type of dentistry that looks at the health of a person’s teeth in relation to the health of the overall body. This kind of dentist understands how chronic and degenerative disease can be caused by toxic fillings, jawbone infection, the bite or airway problems.
