Mercury dental amalgam - toxic or not? by Sidney Blythehood - Tue, 08 Dec 2015 06:47:46 EST ID:3Yq7sEVM No.53544 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I have 6 amalgam fillings. I've read as much as I can but it's difficult to discern between government information trying to keep people calm, false information encouraging you to spend money, and legitimate concern from people with real information.

Is there any truth to dental amalgam mercury causing toxic symptoms (even in small amounts), bioaccumulation of mercury in the brain and kidneys, etc?

I'm leaning towards the side of it being a huge scam, but I'm probably leaning that way because of the 6 amalgam fillings and hating the dentist.

>>Is there any truth to dental amalgam mercury causing toxic symptoms (even in small amounts)

No. We've been using fillings for 150 years there has yet to be a single incident of harm/death to a person that was attributed to their fillings. Is it possible that people were harmed but the fillings 'flew under the radar' as the cause? Sure, but that also depends on what time period we're talking about. Go back 100 years when medicine was still a clusterfuck and if fillings were bumping off people it might have been missed. But go back 50 years, 40... we know what mercury poisoning looks like. We know what someone suffering from it looks like and how to help them. If injury/death from fillings was so widespread as some nuts claim it would have been detected and it would have been a bigger scandal than thalidomide.

>>bioaccumulation of mercury in the brain and kidneys, etc?

No. Bioaccumulation means you absorb more of a substance than you emit of it. Mercury amalgam fillings release roughly 3 one-millionths of a gram of mercury vapour per day. A person's average daily exposure to mercury is 9 one-millionths of a gram. In other words, fillings release 1/3 of your daily intake of fucking nothing. Even if mercury emitted from fillings was accumulating in people, the mercury they were exposed to from every other source would be accumulating at an even higher rate. If it was accumulating and not being eliminated then mercury poisoning would be a major international issue, and even then it would illustrated in connection with alll those other, greater sources and not primarily with fillings. But that's not our situation, is it? Not at all.

Contrast that with apple seeds which naturally contain cyanide. Swallow apple seeds whole and they'll go right through you. Chew them up, however, and you may be in trouble. If you ate roughly 143 seeds (depending on your body weight, etc) there's a very good chance that you would be having your last meal. Apples are more dangerous than your fillings.

There are two reasons to leave mercury fillings alone.

Drilling out old fillings that are otherwise solid and sound will also remove some of the tooth's own hard tissue, weakening it. Amalgam fillings are still the most mechanically-effective tool we have to remedy tooth decay. You will have given up time and money and weakened your tooth (or teeth) and will have gained nothing for it.

This post isn't about my hatred of dentists, it's about the extreme discomfort inexperience when I go.

I avoided the dentist for 3 years. I got dental insurance through work and a routine cleaning was free. I didn't want to go, but I wanted to know if I had any cavities.
It's the same damn thing every time. I'm a small girl with a small mouth. They needed to get alllll the way to the back to check my molars. Here are the issues: my gag reflex is really sensitive when I'm anxious, and I just CANNOT relax my tongue. I always try so hard, even doing breathing exercises, but it stays tensed up so the dentist has a really hard time going back there. Don't even get me started on them trying to get the bite xrays in.

because of anxiety and an unlucky mouth situation, going to the dentist is SO uncomfortable for me. And it turns out I have two cavities, waaaay in the back, on my molars. FUCK.
How is this even going to happen without them accidently hurting me? I looked into sedation, and my insurance doesn't cover it. It's $200 for 20mg Valium (I'm already on klonopin but I can't take extra before I go because I don't have any extras in my script, if I go over a day without I start to wd) and almost $1000 for complete sedation. So those aren't happening.

Does anyone have a similar problem with dental procedures? And how the fuck do I relax my tongue so they can move it over and not shred it with their intimidating tools?

Tl;dr my anxiety and physiology makes the dentist very uncomfortable and I need two cavities filled soon, what do? Pic unrelated

>>How is this even going to happen without them accidently hurting me?

They won't accidentally hurt you unless you start jerking your tongue or head around. Your jaw or tongue just being tense isn't that much of an issue because they are not moving (much).

>>how the fuck do I relax my tongue so they can move it over and not shred it with their intimidating tools?

You won't be able to relax it, so don't even try. Just use slight exertion to hold it in its normal, at-rest location but it down a little to give some room to your molars. Go right now to a mirror with a light and try it. You'll see that your tongue drops right down and leaves plenty of room all the way around your teeth, and that it isn't hard to hold it there. I think much of the problem is the 'feeling' of the tongue is that it's huge and blocking eveything. But that ain't so. Go look now and see.

The dentist will only work on one side at a time and you do not need to shove your tongue to the opposite side of your mouth and hold it there. Dentists are used to working with a tongue in the way. Just keep it a little lower than usual and if he/she needs to move it they will tell you or they may gently push it out of the way. Also the business end of the drill is fucking tiny, like the end of a toothpick (but not stabby-pointy).

This is something I would be reluctant to medicate your way out of, but then I'm not a dentist. These are questions for him to help solve. Did you ask him specifically about these things?

>>I don't think they use it for the whole time, do they?

Yes and no. The literature says they use it bursts - a few minutes of nitrous, then 5 minutes of oxygen, then back to the nitrous and repeat until the procedure's over.

Thanks for the advice. I didn't ask specifics about the nitrous. When they were checking my teeth when I was there they kept repeatedly telling me to relax my tongue and seemed to be having trouble...my mouth is super tiny, I'm just a tiny person. But I definitely won't thrash my tongue around lol

One may suddenly start moving their tongue around.

Why soo expensive on the benzos? Talk to doctor for generic Klonpin, doctor can cal it in if script is almost up.Tell doctor that it's not as much anxiety bit panic attacks.

Can you get another insurance, like medicaid, do so regardless , you could get co-pays as low as a dollar a visit, could get clonazzepam for a dollar for like over a hundred of them -n US
Anyway. Doo seek a primary care doctor instead of a psychatrist frro medication.

Hey, /med/
Sometimes, when I play video games, my face and hands go numb/tingly and my vision gets slightly blurry. It seems to only happen with console games (handhelds and PC have never caused this). The type of game doesn't seem to matter too much, everything from fighting games to third-person shooters seem to set it off. It even happens when I'm hydrated and have recently eaten, so hypoglycemia's out. I tried talking to my doctor about it, but she just chalked it up to my anxiety. My anxiety doesn't feel like this.
Anyone know what might be up? I tried googling the symptoms, but everything led back to "Playstation Thumb" or something similar...

Those are symptoms of hyperventilation.

Check your breathing when this happens and tone it down if it seems too fast.

You're probably not aware you've started breathing more rapidly from excitement while playing.

No. Anything where you get asked for money but aren't provided with valid credentials or evidence of efficacy is a scam.

Go home, roger.

The human body is a triumph of homeostasis and the notion that certain areas of the body are 'too acidic' because of environmental factors is pure pseudoscience. The food you eat cannot affect blood pH.

Your claim that it cures or vastly diminishes the effects of cancer is false. An alkaline environment may improve the activity of certain chemotherapeutic agents, but diet is not an adequate delivery mechanism for adjusting the pH of blood.

I asked about propranolol cause my mom has tons of this shit just lying around and I also used it as a kid with no side effects which is pretty rare for me

I'm talking about situational crying, like when you get startled, not depressive stuff. I don't normally cry unless I hit my triggers, it's always anxiety related

Ah, so it's only for shaking?
I know it doesn't affect mood, but people use it for stage fright (I did), I've been wondering to what extent it affects the body since I have no clue it works exactly

Pour some Stregga on your feet.

You have foot fungus most likely. If that's the case, you're making it worse, lol. So, essentially the answer is to season your feet like spaghetti. Put lots of thyme and sage and such (cloves work too) in that hot water for your foot soak, or better yet, cook it into a bit of oil like when making cannabutter, (could even toss in some weed for your feet) and then use that as a lotion once it cools.

And change your insouls in your shoes immediately and let them completely dry.

Not going to even bother with mutivitamins. Total waste. You can google this and get tons of results.

>Now on to your essential question!
The golden test website you have to pass for. You can get one free test result. I did get one test results and posted it in the previous post.

Also, as a stated before, too much of any vitamin will eventually be bad. Everything, even medicines, can be poisonous at the right dose. Here's one example:

A few slight points I would like to make additional. Some products do contain listed amounts but, others don't. This is what happens when there is zero government oversight. Taking vitamin supplements isn't bad for you and in a few early trail suggest that some vitamins are good. Taking vitamins probably wouldn't do anything if you have a healthy diet and a normal lifestyle. Abnormal states such a pregnancy or some of the things I listed one of my other post is a good thing to do. Realistically, you wouldn't receive any significant side effects unless you really take a extreme amount.

Hey guys, OP again with another update.

I never actually believed in vitamins before i started taking them, like even what frederick said only made me want to try them, but woah, i have to literally force myself to eat 3 meals a day.

I just feel so awesome in general! i cant believe it.

I'm trying to find the name of a certain genetic disorder.

It is caused by a random mutation usually. A deletion. Removes the body's ability to make protective tissue over muscle and nerves. Neither of his parents had it.

This kid had it that I knew. He had braces and his teeth kept getting worse. He had huge bruises on his shins and wore shinguards to school because how vulnerable those are. He smelled bad because showering hurt, and he was really really weak.

He made a presentation about it during class about genetic disorders. By that point he was really mean to everyone and everyone had hated him for a long time, but I feel like it was brought about by loneliness because of his illness causing him pain whenever he tried to be normal.

He was scrawny and his eyes bugged out. Not sure if it was part of the disorder though.

I was recently in the hospital for mental issues and was diagnosed and treated for high blood pressure at the same time. I was prescribed lisinopril and hydrochlorothiazide. I can't afford a doctor but I think I can afford the prescription. A friend of mine has a blood pressure machine so I am able to get feedback on how well the medicine is working.

Does anyone know a website where I can purchase lisinopril and HCTZ without a prescription? Any advice for adjusting the dosage?

nowhere in the US will do that without a prescription. However, you may be able to get whoever prescribed you the drugs in the first place to renew the prescription without a visit to the hospital. Give a pharmacy the prescriber's contact information and they can fax him or whatever and get a renewed prescription. This may not work, depending on how long ago you were first prescribed, or any number of reasons.
Those are cheap drugs, though, especially if you get a prescription for each instead of going with the combined tablet. All chain pharmacies have some sort of universal discount card they can apply, or you can just go to walmart or costco who lose money on their cheap drugs because they can make up the difference elsewhere.

I have been having a lot of issues with my new medications. I used to take Lithium until I had a toxic level. There were times when it would help me a lot and then go into a mini-mania-session where I would need a hospital stay for adjustments. During my last hospital stay I was prescribed Depakote instead of Lithium and I have had some major issues with living a daily routine.

First of all there is a sleeping issue where it takes me forever to fall asleep and when I do fall asleep it's for a very long time into the day. Another issue is my lack of a libido and it really bothers me. I cannot even manage arousal or getting an erection. My final issue is this weight gain. I haven't gained much, but in the month I have been on the medication—about 5-10 pounds gained and it shifts a lot each day with a strange plateau. I guess my psychosis is getting a bit more unpredictable, but it's being gaining momentum since I have been on this switch.

What medications should I look into or talk about at my next psychiatrist visit? I really like Lithium, but I think since I have been on it for so long and had the high toxicity level during my last hospital visit—she probably won't let me back on it AND I had to miss my last appointment because of timing and bus error.

>I take a heart medication and blood pressure medication along with a multivitamin and the Invega for anti-psychotic purposes.

I pretty much drink alcohol once a month and smoke an eighth of weed in about a week or 10 days for the month. Since I rarely even consume any other substances I would hope to find relief with a really nice change in my mood-stabilizer.

wait wait, OP.

maybe you should take LSD to- HA jk.
I'm kidding. don't take it. You'll go insane.

Why do you like a drug that makes yo gain weight and does not help with your illness?

weed is NOT helpful to schizo-anything.

>As an antipsychotic

Depakote isn't an antipsychotic. It's an anticonvulsant that's used in bipolar disorder as a mood stabilizer.

Unfortunately, it can have serious side effects. Most psych meds do. Of course, that's why they're not handed out for fun. Mania is no picnic, either. Or maybe it's too much of a picnic. Like having a picnic on meth, and there's a good chance that when the picnic's over, you'll be bankrupt, in jail, or dead.

Ooooh. I was worried it by default made you fat as a chemical because I take it and I don't wanna be fat!
