replacing mercury/silver amalgams
Posted by: Judy
Date: June 2, 2000 12:05 AM

I found a somewhat sympathetic dentist to replace my silver/mercury amalgams that are cracked, chipped, and/or in some way need of replacing. He was in agreement with replacing the silver/mercury fillings with composite amalgams or porcelain, but said that the bigger ones would have to be replaced with gold onlays. What is the best material to use to replace the bigger fillings in the mouth that need stronger support than composite or porcelain can allow? and what are the problems, if any, with gold? Is there something else that can be done or used instead of gold?

You may have the most open dentist in town, in which case you may need to change towns. "Gold" is only 5-30% gold, depending on the formula. The rest are various metals, and you will not know what metals until you see that exact formula. Probably your dentist will not know either. Whatever they are, they do not belong in the human body. Even if they were non-toxic, you could still have the problem of current flow through them which disrupts the electrical system in the body and can cause a variety of problems. There is always an alternative in dentistry. You need to find a dentist who will work with you all the way. You can use our "Find A Dentist" service by clicking on Find A Dentist above.

Dear Judy,

As you can see by my credentials, I am not a dentist but have a keen interest inpersons having their amalgams removed properly followed by the use of non-metallic agents to repair the deficit. I live in NC where there is a deficit of dentists who know the protocol for amalgam removal. In fact my wife has had recent root canal and amalgam removals but these were done in Fullerton, CA by a doctor Richard Hansen who I feel is the best in the world. His phone number is 1-800-9laser0. I hope I have not breached this bulletin board's rules. I cannot overstress the importance of finding the proper dentist to do the amalgam work.
