Urgent News For Supporters Of Anti-Fluoridation: Your Dentist Could Be Hiding A Fluoride Releasing “Dirty Bomb” Under Your Filling! What Now?

What you are about to read might be the most important article that could bust wide open hidden truths about fluoride under your tooth colored resin bonded composite fillings. This report will give you the information you need to finally let you take control of the fluoride war taking place between you and your dentist.

If there’s one thing that makes my teeth rattle, it’s the overblown claims about biocompatible tooth colored fillings. And if you have a holistic dentist, I’m sure you’ve heard plenty of hype for the resin bonded composite restoration.

These “miracle fillings” are supposed to solve all the problems associated with toxic mercury silver amalgam fillings — you know, those ugly dark corroded metal plugs created over 150 years ago that many dentists still use today to fix cavities.

Even if you have the best dentist in the world, you still might not be getting the complete story about your biocompatible tooth colored filling unless you know how to ask the right questions about the fluoride chemicals that could be hidden under it.

Maybe you’re one of the many who paid a small fortune to replace your old amalgams with beautiful white fillings, hoping to banish your mercury fears. Your dentist beams while he/she shows you an x-ray of the completed filling, but you notice a slight grey line under it and ask “what’s that?” When you’re told it’s a medicated fluoride coating placed over the infected dentin to stimulate remineralization, you turn hot beet red and ready to rip out the filling with its toxic fluoride under lining.

Biocompatibility is not as black and white as the mainstream media wants you to believe and controversial fluoride liners have been routinely used to extend the life of your tooth because until recently, with the growing use of composite filling material, there’s hasn’t been any other way to safely and effectively remineralize decayed and infected dentin sitting right over your plump pulp nerve.

In the “drill and fill” age of amalgam, biocompatible calcium hydroxide paste was the golden salve for sorrily infected dentin. Unfortunately, the conventional pastes weren’t stable enough under the newer acid etched composites so dentists retooled their strategy and started using fluoride releasing glass ionomer cements (GIC) instead. The most popular brand of GIC is Vitrebond, more correctly, a resin-modified glass ionomer (RMGI).

For years dentists believed that by using GIC the were “Promoting the GOOD and Banishing the BAD.” Undercover and away from the public eye in research labs, scientists knew that fluoride was toxic and there’s been a mad dash to discover a safer medicated liner to protect the tooth pulp. One of the first non-fluoride products created in the early 1980’s was mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA). The the most recent one, still undergoing clinical tests for longevity, is Theracal, a non-fluoride resin-modified calcium silicate filled liner. There’s a lot of excitement being built around Theracal and you should mention it to your dentist, as another choice, before having another white filling placed.

What, however, should you do about any GIC’s under your current fillings? Don’t panic! Very little, if any, fluoride from a GIC liner is likely to be released into your tooth pulp’s blood vessels, travel all the way to your brain, and bind with the hydroxylapatite crystals in your pineal gland. Even though the calcified parts of the pineal gland attract the greatest fluoride concentration in the body, including bones and teeth, the limited tiny amount of fluoride in the GIC is usually depleted within 2 years time. Push your concerns OUT OF YOUR MIND because fear can trick you into losing your smarts about judging the next “WOW” biocompatible tooth product.
