silicone removal from body

Is there a protocol from traditional or alternative medicine to remove migrating silicone from a deteriorated or broken up jaw implant?

I am trying to think of what kind of jaw implant would have silicone, but let's just say you are right and that you are dealing with a jaw implant which has silicone. It seems to me that the first step would be surgical removal of the implant and replacement with some other material if necessary. As far as removal from a molecular/atomic level is concerned, silicones are largely inert with respect to many chemical reactions, which make them highly desirable as sealants, adhesives, and vacuum pumping fluids. However, this same property makes them difficult to remove. First, I suggest you find a dark field microscopist. If there is silicone in the blood it will be visible as a large number of microscopic crystals. Eventually it will leave the system on its own atom by atom. Theoretically, if its transition from the crystaline form into the molecular form, it would leave sooner. The only likely solvent I can think of which might do the job and still be safe to administer to a human being would be DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide). I have never heard of DMSO being used for that purpose, but it just might do the job. You would need to find a doctor familiar with DMSO and who administers it and go in for an evaluation. However, if the dark field exam does not reveal crystalline silicone particles, there would be no point in taking DMSO. You are asking a question about a path down which medicine, mainstream or alternative, as far as I know, has not tread.
