Does anyone wish to shed light on this subject?
I met a woman at work today who is studying to be a nutritionist and understood my concern over my amalgym fillings. She claims her brother went to Mexico and solved the problem of replacing amalgym with "rubber" (I assume, gutta-percha fillings used to fill the roots of root canals.) Here is a statement on gutta percha:

"Gutta-percha endodontic filling points were found to contain approximately 20% gutta-percha (matrix), 66% zinc oxide (filler), 11% heavy metal sulfates (radiopacifier), and 3% waxes and/or resins (plasticizer). " http://jdr.sagepub.com/content/54/5/921

But even on root canals a cap is placed over this.
Lola? Anybody wish to shed light on this "Mexican rubber filling?"
Has someone invented a new use for OLD TIRE TREADS in Mexico?

The most important issue.. is the need to prevent bacteria or for that matter any bacteria or food partickles to reach the bottom of the tooth, meaning the end of the root.  Particles can enter through a fissure in the gum - do called pocket- or by way of toothdecay.  Preventing such is needed to avoid a root infection.  There are near no options - pulling a tooth or fill it.  the filler used over 80 years is guttapercha. and a crown will need to portect the tooth from crushing from biting on it, most often it will be gold and plastic over it. --  Once a tooth is pulled the space needs filling.  Putting a screw in the gum is one way, wearing a bredge is another.  In all cases plastics and gold and titanium will be used.  Filling just a superficial cavity today most often uses moldable plasic made to harden with a small blue light.  Until they find new materials.  

Taking the mercury fillings out can damage the lungs more from the dust inhaled.. as long as they are ok, I would leave them.  When they need taking out is time enough. I am not so all certain that plastic fillings are healthier, but they look better.  In old age we will have white teeth again.  and have metal joints.. haha.  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

We need to know whether the man who went to Mexico is biting down on gutta percha alone, or what this "rubber" is. I would not want the sulfates in my mouth from uncapped gutta percha. I must Facebook my new friend and ask her.....
