Is Akamai Mineral Toothpaste or Toothpowder safe with Silver Amalgam Fillings?
Bentonite clay is scientifically proven to remove heavy metals, including Mercury. It has been used successfully to detox the mouth and body related to mercury poisoning from Amalgam Fillings. Bentonite will grab any free mercury in the mouth, however, it will not "pull" from the existing filling unless the clay is left on the filling (with a thick coating) for many hours.
Generally speaking, the Toothpowder and Toothpaste are safe for people that have Amalgam fillings. Brushing is typically 2 minutes or less and this exposure is not enough to impact (or irritate or draw) the filling.
We strongly encourage customers with Amalgam fillings to have them safely removed since mercury will always be present in the mouth (with the fillings) - the amount will diminish over time.
