Creating Healthy Teeth and Gums for Life.

Historic Mercury Treaty Signed by World Leaders in November 2013

Holistic dentists, health professionals, and environmental advocates celebrated last November as leaders from around the world gathered in Japan to sign the Minamata Treaty on mercury. A known neurotoxin, mercury is a dangerous substance that threatens the health and safety of all animal, plant, and human life. Mercury is still used in dental amalgam, and these “silver fillings” are known to be extremely hazardous to patients. Holistic dentists are perhaps most excited with the signing of the Minamata Treaty, because it establishes a foundation for the eventual “phase out” of mercury fillings, which are a leading cause of environmental mercury waste (source: World Health Organization). To learn more about the Minamata Treaty, visit this exclusive on the Miami Dentist Blog.
