Our approach here at The Smile Gallery in Sussex is to protect and preserve the health of our patients – this means that we consistently invest in the newest, safest technology to provide patients with an alternative, holistic route to better dental health and wellbeing.
Integrating holistic dentistry into the practice has put the emphasis back on treating patients as individuals and putting them back in charge of their treatments by recommending alternative treatment modalities they can choose according to their personal preferences.
Holistic dentistry treats the body and oral health in the same stead.
Mercury has been the major component of silver amalgam fillings for a century as it’s cheap and malleable. However, it’s a toxic, heavy metal that’s more poisonous than lead and arsenic. According to a study carried out by the IAOMT, amalgam continuously leaks dangerous vapour toxins, which have been linked to diseases like cancer, ADHD, Alzheimer and chronic fatigue.
Practising holistic dentistry, which uses mercury-free and amalgam-free products, means we use alternative filling materials to restore cavities.
Amalgam-free fillings are safer, better-looking and prevent the likelihood of future caries.
Dr Brumder believes that amalgam removal is necessary – but it needs to be carried out in a dental practice that takes a holistic approach to ensure the safest possible environment for removal. As the content of these fillings is around 50% mercury – a big concern, with other metals added to make the material up, extra caution, care and attention need to be applied. Ignoring amalgam fillings over time can impact your immunse system and cause symptoms like brain fog, exhaustion and weakness.
Together with you, Dr Brumder will ensure that your oral health aligns with your diet and lifestyle to ensure an optimal environment for your smile and immune system. With holistic dentistry, your physical and emotional health are also considered when treating your oral issues, making the treatment very personal to you.
