Uninformed About The Health of Your Mouth? Why This is Dangerous
Many "incurable" oral diseases are incurable, no doubt. More importantly, the incurable oral diseases are also very preventable. And, the kind of prevention we are suggesting has nothing to do with modern medicine, miracle medication, new fangled dentistry, or any advancement in technology, medicine, dentistry, or science.
The prevention we are talking about is common sense, easily obtained, and cost effective. It’s called being informed and educated about your oral health.
"Are you vested in the health of your mouth, and if not, why?"
There is a price to pay for those who are uninterested, disengaged, or just don’t care about Oral Health. Obviously, if you don’t care about Oral Health, you probably don’t care to practice prevention either.
The best thing anyone with a mouth can do is to become informed and educated about oral health. There is no risk or cost associated with being informed. It only requires concern, care, interest, and your time.
And, don’t blindly trust your dentist, as many of them have no idea about the toxicity of dental materials they put in your mouth. Such dental toxins include mercury, cadmium, copper, zinc, beryllium, nickel, phenol, and the toxic wastes generated by anaerobic bacteria.
Moreover, many dentists have no clue about the contents of the dental recommendations they make, such as the harmful and harsh chemicals found in conventional brand toothpaste and mouthwashes.
As a matter of fact, most dentists have been taught that these harmful chemicals in toothpaste are safe to use. We now know different - we know that Fluoride, Triclosan, Sodium Laurel Sulfate, and other chemicals found in conventional toothpaste is harmful to our oral and overall health and wellbeing. For this reason alone we should be informed and educated about our oral health.

Uninformed Consent: The Hidden Dangers in Dental Care
by Hal Huggins, Thomas E. Levy
ISBN-13:9781571741172 Publisher: Hampton Roads Publishing Company, Inc. Publication date: 01/28/1999 Pages:280
Description and Overview
Dr. Huggins and Dr. Levy affirm that an expansive number of medical maladies we suffer from are preventable. They recommend that different medical illnesses, such as sclerosis, lupus, leukemia, incessant weakness disorder, Parkinson's infection, numerous mental issue including Alzheimer's, and even real maladies like bosom disease are created, to some extent, by the poisons we put in our bodies. Where do these poisons originate from and how would they get into our bodies? You
Their book, Uninformed Consent: The Hidden Dangers in Dental Care, published by Hampton Roads Publishing Company (1999) states that poisons that cause illness get into our bodies by doctors and dentists (medicines, drugs, and treatments). Additionally, we acquire vast amounts of poisons through the food and drinks we ingest. Lastly, the personal care products and toothpaste we use.
Huggins and Levy contend that most, if not all of the poisons we acquire are self-inflicted, and most of the time we are paying professionals to do the same. These toxic materials — mercury, cadmium, beryllium, nickel, and others — are utilized as a part of regular dentistry to make up the fillings, root channels, and bridgework in our mouths, and should be "protected." But would they say they are? Ignorant Consent presents instances of poisonous harming — of discouraged invulnerable frameworks and illogical ailments — to poisons entering the circulation system from the overwhelming metals in dental materials.
Drs. Huggins and Levy beseech the reader, not to give over their health and wellbeing to dental professionals and expect that all will be fine. Be alert and aware of what dentists put in your mouth. Keep in mind what is more important to you - your health and wellness or a filling in your tooth? Uninformed Consent presents some hard truths about dental care, truths that are difficult to swallow. The goal of the authors is for you to take responsibility for your total well-being, which means you need to start paying attention to what the health ramifications are to any and all dental treatment or procedure before giving consent.
