Heavy metals
Heavy metals can cause acute or gradual (chronic) poisoning, allergies and auto-immune diseases. Several of the metals used in dentistry increase the risk of developing cancer. These include cadmium, cobalt, palladium and nickel. Precious metals such as gold or platinum can also trigger inflammation and allergies.
Gradual metal poisoning can cause following symptoms:

• Chronic joint problems
• Muscle pain, tremor
• Impaired concentration
• Amnesia
• Hardness of hearing
• Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
• Impaired vision
• Allergies and intolerances
• Increased susceptibility to infection with or without fever
• Acne, eczema, urticaria (hives)
• Neurodermatitis
• Disorders of intestinal colonization (intestinal dysbiosis)
• Chronic fatigue
• Swallowing and articulation disorders
• Loss of libido
• Psychological changes (aggression and depression, anxiety)
• Autoimmune diseases

Case archive
Since 1987, we have been keeping one of the world's most comprehensive data collection systems to track heavy metals deposits in the dental roots, gums and jaw bones as well as formaldehyde concentrations in the dental root. Since 1995, patient findings have been supplemented by immunological measurements. We have tracked over 1,700 cases.
An analysis of these cases shows that the disease is unremarkable in the early stage and progresses only gradually. It is often easy to dismiss the symptoms as psychosomatic. Proper early classification can spare the patient serious and painful consequences.
