Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal
Does your dentist still place mercury amalgam fillings? I am a dentist who is passionate about helping people have healthy and attractive teeth and gums. One way of making teeth attractive is the safe removal of old and ugly mercury amalgam fillings. But did you know that there are protocols to follow to remove amalgam safely? Not only is it important to be mercury free, but also to remove mercury amalgam safely.

The safe mercury amalgam removal protocols I follow include IV Vitamin C, rubber dam and a separate oxygen source. I have been doing these procedures for over 5 years, resulting in many happy patients. To support your immune system, I recommend advanced quality broad-spectrum nutritional supplements that contain the full spectrum of vitamins, chelated minerals, antioxidants including Vitamin D3.
I also recommend a follow-up appointment with a natural therapist for an Hg Detox program following safe amalgam removal. No matter which way you look at it, Mercury amalgam fillings are not attractive. Now there are better alternatives on the market and different options to suit your budget. I stopped placing amalgam fillings in 1995 and I remove amalgam fillings using safe protocols. I am a mercury free dentist.
One of the issues that doesn’t get discussed so much is the failure of amalgam fillings. They may last a long time but in the process, I have found that due to the expansion and contraction of the metal that has been placed in heavily carved out teeth, the tooth structure cracks and breaks after a period of time. By that stage, it is best to repair with an “instant” porcelain crown rather than another filling.
So not only do the amalgam fillings look ugly, they may cause damage to our teeth. Safely removing amalgam fillings can be a time consuming job depending on the number of amalgam filled teeth and where they are positioned. When patients can give me 30 minutes of their time, I take photos of the mouth using a digital camera – then I discuss and create a treatment plan.
