FDA Recommends Against Amalgam Use for Many Patients


Earlier this month, the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) made a vital recommendation against amalgam use, a cause which Dr. David Villarreal has donated to for decades, which will positively change the dental industry to better care for patients across the country.  In response to Consumers for Dental Choice’s high-pressure three-year campaign, the FDA issued a new safety communication recommending against amalgam use in people who are at higher risk from the adverse effects of mercury exposure, including…

  • Pregnant women and their developing babies
  • Women who are planning to become pregnant
  • Nursing women and their newborns and infants
  • Children, especially (but not limited to) those younger than six years of age
  • People with pre-existing neurological disease
  • People with impaired kidney function
  • People with known heightened sensitivity (allergy) to mercury or other components of dental amalgam.

This list, of course, encompasses a significant part of the American population.  As such, FDA’s action has the potential to protect up to one-half of Americans from mercury in their mouths.  Too, it is the essential intermediate step we need, now, to accomplish the full transition to mercury-free dentistry.

FDA’s decision culminates Consumers for Dental Choice’s intense campaign to persuade FDA to reconsider its amalgam policy.  They organized the non-profit organization community behind the Chicago Declaration to End Dental Industry Mercury Use, had meetings with FDA top brass, called for, and got the FDA’s scientific advisory committee to reexamine the amalgam issue, brought 16 expert witnesses to that committee’s hearings, ran robust petition and public comment drives that showed FDA that we, the people, wanted a change in American amalgam policy and successfully brought about change.

Benefits Of Fluoride Free Dentistry

At BioDental Healing, we operate differently from the traditional Western dentist that accepts the use of fluoride in their work – as well as advocating it for use at home. We celebrate the benefits fluoride free dentistry, including a decreased risk of health issues that can be onset from fluoride ingestion.

Why Choose Fluoride Free Dentistry

While fluoride has been continuously approved for use by the CDA and ADA, this does not mean it has no chance of damaging your body in some way. Large-scale studies have shown consistent high dose fluoride ingestion is linked with:

  • Brittle bones and enamel
  • Dental fluorosis
  • Hip fractures
  • Cancer
  • Kidney stones
  • Lower IQ in children

As for fluoride effectiveness in tooth decay prevention – the studies that have been performed on this subject matter were not randomized, controlled, or blinded studies. They have failed to show any significant reduction in preventing tooth decay. Our holistic approach factors in the mind, body, and spirit to achieve a healthy balance. Achieving this balance is very difficult if fluoride is introduced into the body.

Our fluoride free dentist, Dr. Villarreal, invites you to experience a new, fresh take on dentistry – an experience that will leave you feeling great, with your body thanking you along the way. Schedule an appointment today!

Dangers of Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam fillings, or silver fillings, are composed of 50 percent mercury, making them the most toxic materials used by general dentists. Mercury is the most toxic, non-radioactive element found on the planet. Research published on the effects of mercury has shown that it is even more toxic than lead, arsenic or cadmium. A biological dentist realizes the risk to their patients that may occur years or decades after mercury-containing fillings are placed in their teeth. Even mothers of infants have been shown to pass the mercury from their fillings to their babies.Just as dental health is an important part of any individual’s overall health, using nontoxic and systemically compatible materials to perform dental work is an important factor in creating a healthy mouth and a healthy body.

TMJ Treatment Newbury Park

Looking for a TMJ Treatment in Newbury Park? Consider the biological dental approach. Disorders of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) are a group of conditions that cause pain in and around the TMJ and nearby muscles. Clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth puts an additional strain on the muscles of the jaw causing inflammation. TMJ problems can affect a person’s ability to speak, eat, chew, swallow, make facial expressions, and even breathe.

Symptoms of TMJ disorders

Pain is one of the most common symptoms of TMJ Disorders. TMJ pain is often described as a dull ache in the jaw joint and nearby areas, including the ear. In other cases, some people report no pain but instead experience jaw dysfunction. Other symptoms can include:

  • pain in the neck and shoulders
  • migraine and/or chronic headache
  • jaw muscle stiffness
  • limited movement or locking of the jaw
  • painful clicking, popping or grating in the jaw joint when opening or closing the mouth
  • a bite that feels “off”
  • ear pain, pressure and/or ringing in the ears
  • diminished hearing
  • dizziness and vision problems
  • tooth sensitivity

BioDental Healing TMJ Treatment In Newbury Park

Stabilization splints (biteplate, nightguard) are the most widely used treatments for TMJ disorders. Additional holistic treatments like gentle jaw stretching and relaxation exercises can also help.

Our safety standards are held very high here @ BioDental Healing. As a result, we steer clear from any questionable chemicals or ingredients such as BPA, which stands for “bisphemol A”, an industrial synthetic chemical that has been used in plastics and resins since 1960. We don’t believe any amount of plastic belongs in the mouth, which is why we offer both BPA free fillings & BPA free dental night guards.

BPA free dental night guards are a great way to treat issues with TMJ and chronic teeth grinding because they are non-invasive and do not require any form of surgery.

Grinding the teeth is an area of concern because if not treated may come with serious consequences to your teeth such as chips & cracks, tongue indentation, flattening of teeth, more frequent headaches, and you could even strip off the enamel.

To learn more about our treatment options for TMJ and/or teeth grinding, either call our office @ (805) 375-2233 or conveniently contact us online.

What Is A Meridian Tooth Chart

Here at BioDental Healing, we rely on the Meridian Tooth Chart as one of our resources when assessing your dental health. The Meridian Tooth Chart is based on acupuncture meridians, pathways of energy that span across interrelated body parts, glands, and tissues. Each tooth is associated with a particular meridian, through which energy flows.

The Relationship Between Teeth & Vital Organs

Every tooth has a meridian going to it. There are 12 meridians in total, and each of the 32 teeth are represented on them. The bicuspids share one meridian; the molars share another; the anterior (front) teeth, yet another. The maxillary bicuspids share with the mandibular molars, and the maxillary molars share with the mandibular bicuspids.
