REMOVAL OF AMALGAM FILLINGS
If there is one area of holistic dentistry which is most misunderstood it is in this subject. Popular media and advertising by dentists is full of quackery . As dentists, it is our duty to be as scientific or to show good reason by experience that a procedure should be recommended. To this date there is no evidence that removing old amalgams treats such ailments as chronic fatigue syndromes and the like. Besides Viral infections, the main causes are related to the jaw joint.
Therefore, I do not recommend the removal of amalgams for this reason, but will do if requested. However, old amalgams expand and crack teeth and they often leak and cause decay and for this reason often need replacing with different kinds of restorations according to the need.
When restoring teeth I do not use Amalgam because of appearance and also because of the question mark regarding the use of mercury on the body.
