Silver Amalgam Removal: What is in your Mouth?

If you will start the detoxification journey you need to know the aim of detoxification is to eliminate all the negative effects on the body from the environment: industrial chemicals, pesticides, additives in our food, secondary smoke, pollutants, and heavy metals included.

Detoxification actually begins with the initial treatment of ridding the body of the toxins. There are several things that preclude the detoxification procedure themselves. Removing offending dental material is one, nutrition is another.

If a person is reactive to mercury, copper, zinc or one of the components of the amalgam filling. Then the silver amalgam dental filling should be removed to eliminate that immune challenge. Sequential removal is a term applied to the process of removing fillings according to their electrical charges. Better responses are noted when fillings with the highest negative charge are remove first. Does non-sequential removal create problems in cell membrane transport and reduce the ability to excrete? This is one apparent possibility as shown by comparing recovery in patients where sequential removal was done.

Another consideration for a detoxification is to learn if your dentist is protecting you while the toxic material are generating fume under your nose from the high speed drill?

While trying to eliminate the toxic exposure you should be informed that many people are sensitive to aluminum, and about 40% of the composites that replace the mercury fillings contain aluminum and BPA. Ceramic crowns are also made of aluminum in a form called aluminum oxide. Supposedly, the aluminum is not able to come out of the ceramic, but clinical observations seriously challenge this belief. Aluminum does not enhance your ability to detox.

According to laboratory estimates of the early 90’s, about 85% of the crowns used in dentistry were not made from gold, but rather from nickel. Nickel is highly carcinogenic, but cheap, and may contribute to reduce detox abilities. Better detox is noted if dental materials that are biologically compatible with your body are used as replacements for the toxic materials.
