Amalgam Removal ?
Our mercury amalgam removal program is designed to remove toxic dental material including mercury amalgam and /or other fillings, crowns, or bridges that appear to be biologically incompatible with our patients’ bodies, while keeping our patients comfortable and safe from the toxic by-products generated during the removal process.
- Biocompatibility testing (link to Compatibility Testing) of dental materials can be performed well in advance of the restorative visit to determine which dental materials are safest or least offensive to the patient’s immune system. There are several ways this testing can be done. Please see biocompatibility testing for more information.
- Supplementation in the form of channel clearing supplements and/or homeopathics to support heavy metal removal may be recommended prior to amalgam removal. Testing of the patients physiological needs is encouraged and can be performed by an integrative practitioner. Colonial Dental will be happy to make a referral.
- DO NOT TAKE ANY ORAL VITAMIN C on the day of the dental visit if you will be receiving local anesthetic. Vitamin C may reduce the effectiveness of the anesthetic making it necessary to use an extra amount of anesthetic, or to wait extra time before the anesthetic becomes effective. If desired, please do bring vitamin C to the dental visit because if it is taken after the dental visit is completed, it will help dissipate the anesthetic, and allow it to wear off faster and speed healing.
- It is recommended that the patient remember to drink copious amounts of water, take appropriate supplements, and eat a diet high in fiber to aid in maintaining open detoxification pathways before and after the dental appointment.
