It’s Official: The European Union Has Finalised Its Ban On Amalgam! 

As the European Council explains in its recent press release:

“Today, the Council adopted a regulation to completely ban the use of dental amalgams… The regulation will now be signed and published in the Official Journal of the EU. It will enter into force on the twentieth day following publication and become directly applicable in all member states.”

You may be aware that the European Council and Parliament struck a deal to end the amalgam era in February 2023.  Now this deal has been formally adopted as the law of the land! 

With this new regulation, we win four major victories…

  • Amalgam use ends in all EU countries on 1 January 2025 (with only narrow exemptions that will be up for review by the end of 2029).
  • Amalgam manufacture in the EU is phased out as of 1 July 2026.
  • Amalgam exports from the EU are banned as of 1 January 2025.
  • Amalgam imports into the EU are banned as of 1 July 2026. 

It took more than a decade of our intense campaigning – from countless hearings and meetings with government officials to reams of comments and scientific evidence.  

We could not have done it without the energy of our many supporters.

Thanks to you, this toxic mercury product is now officially banned in all 27 EU countries!

Stay tuned as we push governments in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and UK to follow suit!

Dental amalgams contain between 50 and 54% mercury.

There are no prizes for guessing that the mercury in your fillings induces a major cause of health problems in your body.  We’ve known this for decades, but convincing our health authorities to act is difficult when they’re making so much money from it.

That’s just a shortened list of the 200 mercury-related diseases documented by Dr Hal A. Huggins (Author of “It’s All In Your Head: The Link Between Mercury Amalgams and Illness”). Evidence from the Dental Tribune suggests that mercury exposure from dental amalgams may also cause or contribute to depression, anxiety and even suicide.

We might ask why the US Multiple Sclerosis Society remained staunchly averse to even considering mercury as a cause of the debilitating condition, at one point actively campaigning against investigating the mercury issue. The phrase ‘follow the money’ springs to mind.

Chuck Rekoske, former Chairman of the Kansas MS Society and an MS sufferer himself, decided to have his amalgam fillings removed. He improved to the extent that he could play three sets of tennis each day with his son. When Chuck started to recommend amalgam removal, the society invited him to resign for “conflict of interest.” 

Enough said there!  

It remains illegal for a dentist in the USA to suggest amalgam removal to a patient. This is dental politics. Such a suggestion might call into question the safety and therapeutic ethics of the American Dental Association’s century-long policy of permanently installing the most toxic non-radiating substance known to man into the human oral cavity. 

However, any dentist may remove the amalgams if the patient requests it. As the connection between mercury and many epidemic diseases becomes better known, the market for amalgam removal has taken a sharp upturn in recent years.

Dr. Tim O’Shea (The Doctor Within) writes: “Today it’s become more and more commonplace for people to be looking for a dentist who will remove mercury fillings. Many of the more conscientious dentists no longer use these amalgams, opting instead for the safer, more biocompatible ceramics and composites.”

For readers who still have amalgam fillings, chewing gum releases 4 to 40 micrograms of mercury each day. Hot drinks, eating hot food, grinding your teeth, having dissimilar metals in your mouth and even brushing your teeth contribute to mercury vapour release.

It is strongly recommended to have amalgam fillings removed from both parents before conception, as the majority of holistic dentists would prefer not to carry this out during pregnancy. 

To have your amalgam fillings removed safely and in accordance with the S.M.A.R.T. protocol as recommended by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, please contact our practice for more information.
