After taking into consideration that what goes into your body is going to affect the long-term health of your teeth, what do you think needs to happen so your dental work will last just as long?
Having already reviewed some damaging effects of invasive dentistry, you now know that “invading”/intervening with the natural tooth’s structure is not what you should pursue if you want your teeth to last (and maintain great condition) as long as your life. Remember: if you lived to be 100 years old, choose sustainable dentistry that will last you just as long. If you are eating well and taking care of your body in all other ways, your body and, therefore, your teeth will be strong, healthy, and functional for a long time. Sounds like a good plan for the later years, right? Save yourself as many physical, emotional, and financial burdens associated with bad health as you can now. The cure for any disease is to avoid it in the first place!
What if you have already had work done on your teeth that is not sustainable? Well, if it includes mercury-saturated amalgam, it is best to get that replaced immediately. Not only will it need replacement after a handful of years — over and over again until there is no more tooth, but a stub needing a crown — but it will also infiltrate tissues throughout your entire body with poisonous mercury. No matter how well you take care of yourself, mercury constantly leeching into your body from your teeth will never allow you to progress towards complete wellness. As your body degenerates with age, mercury poisoning will speed that process up and bring on a host of symptoms that will (almost universally) lead the average doctor to the wrong diagnosis. It will be left untreated, you will be left confused and miserable, and there won’t be enough time left to detoxify.
Don’t put mercury in your mouth!
