Electrogalvanism Testing and You

Happy Smile

Electrogalvanism is the electric current that is produced when two metals are mixed with saliva. It is believed that this current can be responsible for problems such as hearing loss, vertigo, psychological problems, and insomnia. If you are suffering from any of these problems, electrogalvanism testing can check to see if the metals used in your dental work are the cause. This month, Dr. P. Vernon Erwin is blogging from his practice in Glendale, CA to talk about electrogalvanism testing and the benefits of having it done.

Effects of Electrogalvanism

Saliva can naturally interact with various metals. When two different metals are present in the mouth, saliva will begin to act like an electrolyte, producing an electric charge which measures in at 900 milivolts, a significant increase from the body’s natural 450 millivolts. This increase can have drastic effects on the flow of energy to the brain. A good way to tell if you are suffering from electrogalvanism is a metallic taste in the mouth. It can also have a plethora of negative effects on the rest of the body, including:

  • Insomnia
  • Vertigo
  • Tinnitus
  • Hearing Problems
  • Memory and Concentration Issues
  • Epilepsy
  • Eye Issues
  • Mouth Pain

If your dental work is causing electrogalvanism in your mouth, there is no reason to simply live with the condition. By testing for it at our practice in Glendale, CA, we can discover the problem and then begin working towards a potential solution. If your fillings are made from a mercury amalgam and you are suffering from any of these issues, it is very possible that you are experiencing electrogalvanism. Mercury amalgams are made from a combination of five different metals which all will come into contact with the mouth’s saliva. To fix the problem, it is possible for us to replace the fillings you have with a metal that will not have the same reaction.
