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.
