New Policy Against Mercury Dental Fillings Paves Way for Victory Worldwide

Image
Dental amalgam, misleadingly marketed as "silver fillings," is a risky filling material containing 50% mercury — a neurotoxin. Consumers for Dental Choice, led by executive director Charlie Brown, has a track record of success in fighting these mercury fillings, succeeding in: Abolishing the gag rule that prohibited dentists from discussing amalgam's mercury with their patients Winning back the dental licenses of persecuted mercury-free dentists Convincing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to mandate amalgam waste control measures Getting an amalgam reduction requirement into an international treaty, the Minamata Convention on Mercury But there was always one major barrier to mercury-free dentistry in the U.S.: the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. For three decades, the FDA had been dodging its duty to classify — that is, issue a rule for — amalgam. Then Consumers for Dental Choice took action. After assembling plaintiffs, Consumers for Dental Choice sued the FDA

Annual Mercury Awareness Week Update 2021

Image
For the 11th consecutive year, we celebrate our annual Mercury Awareness and Mercury-Free Dentistry Week. With us again is Charlie Brown, executive director of Consumers for Dental Choice, and a former attorney general for West Virginia. As in previous years, during this week we will double your donations to Consumers for Dental Choice, matching it dollar for dollar up to $150,000. I'm committed to doing this annual fundraiser because eliminating dental mercury is such an important effort for both human and environmental health. "Huge numbers of people worldwide … die directly from pollution, toxins in the air, toxins in our body. And one of the huge culprits since the Civil War has been dentistry, the dentists who continue to put mercury in the mouth,"  Brown says. Getting mercury out of dentistry has turned out to be a long, hard battle, but Brown perseveres, and thanks to his diligence and networking skills, he's been able to really move the ball forward.

Best Mouthwashes 2021: Bad Breath, Cavities and COVID-19

Brushing and flossing are the cornerstones of a good oral health routine, but it turns out this duo should really be a trinity. Mouthwash is an important final step in any routine, and California-based dentist  Joseph Field , DDS, recommends using it at least once a day—and ideally every time you brush.  Rinsing with mouthwash not only helps release food particles and neutralize odors, but it also plays an important role in preventing plaque. That's because mouthwash kills bacteria, cosmetic dentist  Brian Harris , DDS, tells Health. Although it's a natural part of the mouth's ecosystem, bacteria can turn into plaque when mixed with sugary or starchy foods, according to the  Cleveland Clinic . If it's not removed when soft, the plaque can harden and cause serious  oral health  concerns, like cavities or even gingivitis ( a.k.a inflammation of the gums ). Incorporating a mouthwash into your routine reduces these risks and leaves your breath unbelievably fresh. Like most
