Permanent Metal Retainer in Mouth - bad for hair?

Permanent Metal Retainer in Mouth - bad for hair?

Post  helpmyhair1 on Thu Jul 27, 2017 4:55 am

This forum has talked a lot about removing metals from the body, so I figured I should ask.

When I was a teenager, I like many others got braces to straighten my teeth. When it was time for the braces to come off, the orthodontist put in a permanent metal retainer behind my teeth, one on the bottom and one on top. To this day I still have the permanent retainer. I have at times broken off a small piece of metal, which I'm sure I've swallowed a tiny amount here and there. When I talk to my dentist, he says I should keep them in for life to ensure my teeth stay straight.

But I'm thinking, wouldn't it be a bad idea to keep metals in the mouth and bits of it flaking off and being potentially swallowed?

Just unsure if I should keep this metal in my mouth for life or have it removed.

I have the same thing on my lower. I have asked the dentist and he says its perfectly fine but I'm sure he has no idea what metal it is. I have heard if you place a small magnet against it and it is magnetized its a good thing>?

Without going into too much detail, a lot can be said about this.

The question I suppose we might ask ourselves is, what would our teeth be moving or crowding in the first place?

Is it really necessary to have a foreign device in the mouth for life?

The situation becomes more complicated when there are cavities that contain metal alloys, because then the mouth with its saliva becomes a battery. There are negative and positive forces. Similar to the car, if the positive one is pulled first problems can occur if it touches metal while the negative post/terminal is still connected.

Nutrition and
Physical Degeneration


Probably the greatest body of work ever published on the connection between diet and oral disease.
There are illustrative photographs that reveal how the teeth are affected.

I can summarize by saying that carbohydrates (especially refined) plus lack of sunshine and vitamin K2
contribute to adverse crowding conditions. There's a link to the entire book for free below.

If there's a risk of the retainer, it would depend on what metal it is made out of. There are other factors involved with
this into adulthood. Teeth around the mandible form around the age of 7 to 8, however habits that are developed as early as infancy can cause a bad situation (mouth breather vs nose breather). Bottle fed vs breast fed make profound differences here, because of how the bottle affects breathing habits can cause jaw changes.

There's about book that gets into detail about this.

I prefer having a removal one, I only wear my retainer during the night. My cousin has a permanent one.
