I would love to get my fillings out but I'm too sick to do so right now. Has anyone gotten better with them in?

What about keeping root canaled teeth?

Is it possible to detox with the amalgams still in? Obviously a source of mercury is still there, but detox to lighten the overall burden on the body?

And what would you take to detox in this situation?

Are your teeth in pain?

One of the worst things I did during this process was remove my amalgams, so it's not the end of the world if you still have them in.

I had no pain prior to getting them out.

After removing them I've been in horrible pain for 5 years and it's cost several thousands of dollars to fix the mess.

I wish I hadn't touched them.

Mercury wasn't (and still isn't) an issue.

I wish I had gotten tested prior to touching my fillings. Doctor's Data has an essential elements test that shows the break down of stuff like mercury in your body.

One of the problems stem from being allergic to the replacement material. Epoxy resin and other substances used in composite fillings can also cause problems.

The other problem was that the composite filling cracked within a year of putting it in.

2 of my friends that I know in person also had problems after removing their amalgams.

One had her tooth crack and she didn't know it when it was being replaced (every time there's drilling on a tooth, this is a risk). An infection developed under the composite. This caused even more issues that took over a year to resolve.

Another had to detox for 6 months after having hers removed.

Just realize, it's sometimes NOT a huge health leap when you get them removed. For some it is, for some it isn't. It's all individual.

I would do dental patch testing through Allergeaze or Dormer before touching your teeth.

Also, my ND said a lot of the older fillings had already out gassed already. There's not much more to come out.

It's like stirring up asbestos. If you don't touch it, it may still be there, but hopefully won't cause problems unless it's stirred up by something like drilling.

Good luck.

Yes, it's still possible to detox while having amalgams.

I had seven root canals pulled a couple of years ago, but would not do it again.

There was a lot of infection there (cavitations in the jawbone), which he cleaned out, but I don't think he got it all as I can still feel soreness and swelling in those areas.

Also, it was very costly.

The bridge he put in front put too much pressure on the adjacent tooth and it eventually had to be pulled as well.

The partials he made were awful, just an bad fit which he never could get right.

I finally found another dentist who at least made me some partials that fit, but I still hate them and just wish I had my teeth back.

It was an absolute nightmare.

Be careful who you trust to do this kind of dental work as things can go very wrong in a hurry.

I know of one person on lymenet who got better with them in. I guess it depends on how many you have.
Detox2 works for people with some amalgams in (1 or 2 amalgams). More than that, I'm not sure the body will release it. I imagine any clay like binder would do this as well.

FWIW, I had pain and could not chew on my left side after two implants. Dentists said I needed night guard.

Instead I used Oral Defense from Supreme Nutrition and pain disappeared. The practitioner who recommended it said it removes bacteria from dental area and the gut.

I have 2 amalgams, one big, one small. They are on the last molar top and bottom on my left side. The 4 root canals are on the left top as well. The amalgams were placed probably close to 25 years ago. I have neuro Lyme, babs, Bart and was just considering the effect of metal toxicity.

It is a detox powder made by Byron White. You can see it at http://byronwhiteformulas.com/ Click on "Detox 2" under "Detox Support" on the left of the screen.
