I'm going to have heart disease because my teeth are bad.
I need to CHECK THE TEETH. This is just a big joke, right?

Well, not exactly. There have been many studies recently linking
periodontal disease with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease. Exactly
what the nature of the link is has not been determined. There are too many
potential confounding factors such as smoking and other behaviors to make the
relation clear cut.
I'm uncomfortable with scaring patients to floss less their hearts
explode. Still, until the link is clarified, you can't dismiss it.
BTW, the relationship between periodontal disease in mothers and low
birth rate babies has been more clearly determined.
REPLY: Yes, this is a big joke and it is wrong.
Well since you brought it up, I just heard on the news that someone had a heart
attack and it was determined it was from the teeth.
However it is far from a joke. There are many people suffering from conditions
that are indeed caused by the teeth. And many who are regaining their health
AFTER the metal is removed from the mouth.
My life and my regained health is not a joke. - Jan

Yes! someone CAN have a heart attack from the teeth, you are Right about
It is NOT from the mercury, it is from the whole bunch of bacterias that
they have in their gums that are inflammated so they are bleeding and then
bacterihemia occurs (bugs in the bloodstream), they are transported to
different organs among:
Heart: Causing bacterial Endo-Carditis, that's why we dents give antibiotics
before, during and after any blood involving treatment to PREVENT it and
ALWAYS recommend good healthy oral hygiene to our beloved patients.
Kidneys: Causing upper urinal infections, formation of calculous stones,
miction pain (it hurts to pi).
And from a bad cleaned mouth: you get intestinal infections that give you
troubles up to Cancer, just by swallowing bacteria.
Brain: Causing Duramadre infections, Meningitis, high intracraneal pressure.
General: chronic fatigue, bad mouth smell, sinusitis,
This is only related to MICROBIOLOGY, it has NOTHING to do with mercury,
mercury in amalgams is NOT guilty for any heart disease, if so people might
be dying very young and, instead of that, programmed scientifical research
is making our expectation of life GROW each year.
Amalgams last a LOT longer than the BEST photocured composite resin, Glass
ionomer, compomere, or any esthetic materials a DENTIST can place in
posterior teeth, so far it is the ONLY material that although not esthetic
has the needed resistance to the high pressures generated in mouth's
posterior part, if you were right about mercury, much more people would have
If YOU had it, it doesn't mean that everybody HAS to have it.
Some people are allergic to anesthesics, might be allergic to one in
particular so the Dentist has to choose one to which the patient is not
allergic, but it doesn't mean that EVERYBODY HAS to be allergic to
anesthesics, get it?
Amalgans well prepared are exprimed to take out the non reacted mercury(the
most one can), then condensated into the prep, this makes more mercury come
out to the surface so we take it out, condense it more and take it out
untill the prep is full and there's no more non reacted mercury coming up,
but this is a "tall" obturation so we take some MORE out to adjust
oclussion, then wait a bit, then softly polish it, if it's polished well it
won't trap bacterial plaque diminishing the risk of side caries, I polish
them AGAIN next time patient comes back.
So NO FREE MERCURY IS OUT FROM MY AMALGAMS no matter oral galvanism or
Oral galvanism causes SENSITIVITY in vital metalled teeth, when there is
ANOTHER KIND of metal in the mouth near to it.
SALIVA has enough "THINGS" in it to chelate the super small amount of
mercury they might leak.
Maybe you're allergic to amalgams, they not only have mercury, they have
silver, copper, zinc, estaņo, that each have particularities by themselves
and different particularities when alloyed or combined in various ways.
Or maybe you're just allergic to dentistry, I could understand that.
or maybe you're allergic to Joel, THAT'S IT, I've acomplished the threat
I've diagnosed YOU!
I LOVE my patients and treat them like I'd like to be treated (well)
be good and brushalot

LOL... I like your analysis, Dr. Schugurensky. Thank you. :)

I heard too much mercury gets stuck inside the coronary arteries. This is
intensified if you carry a magnet in your shirt pocket.
Mercy Doc didn't mean to set you on your ear!!!!!!!!!!!
I have never said that all people should run out and get the metal out! Perhaps
you should read my old posts, before going off half cocked.
>Amalgams last a LOT longer than the BEST photocured composite resin,
You don't know this at all. My dentist has patients whose composites have
lasted better than 15 years. It is an art to install them correctly. It depends
on how artful the dentist is.
Not to mention, that who cares how long they last is you die in the meantime
from mercury poisoning??????????
>if you were right about mercury, much more people would have
And they do! And there are many people who are having health problems and have
never thought of checking the teeth. One read of the ADA and conventional
medicine blindly believes their lies,,,,,,,,,,,because that is the ole American
You probably are aslo not aware of what I do believe. I have stated that the
people with weakened immune systems are of greatest risk. OTOH, which came
first the weakened immune systems.......OR the mercury that weakened it??
>If YOU had it, it doesn't mean that everybody HAS to have it.
Where did that come from? I have never said anything such thing.

I heard his nickname is "The Artful Dodger."
