Could Health Problems be Connected to Cavities?

Some of your health problems could be caused by your cavities, that's what one dentist says after seeing improvements in some of his patients after removing the mercury fillings in their teeth.

Patients with fillings have complained about, double vision and headaches and one dentist thinks that the fillings may be causing those symptoms. He says that the mercury invades the entire enzyme system of the body and that it goes everywhere.

But organizations like the CDC and The World Health Organization and The American Dental Association disagree. They have found no evidence of mercury containing fillings cause medical problems. The president of the New York County Dental Society agrees mercury by itself is toxic, but the mercury in fillings does not end up in your bloodstream.
