Amalgam (Mercury) Removal

Our mercury amalgam removal protocol is designed to remove toxic dental material including mercury amalgam and /or other fillings, crowns, or bridges that appear to be biologically incompatible with the patient, while keeping the patient comfortable and safe from the toxic by-products generated during the removal process. Mercury Amalgam Removal appointments include the following:

  • Biocompatibility testing of dental materials can be performed to determine which dental materials are safest or least offensive to the patient’s immune system.
  • Supplementation in the form of channel clearing supplements and/or homeopathics to support heavy metal removal may be recommended following testing of the patients physiological needs.
  • Mercury Amalgam removal appointments will consist of:
    1. Answering any questions concerning the procedure.
    2. Administering Local Anesthetic to completely numb the area.
    3. Placement of a vinyl (rubber) dam over the teeth to be treated.
    4. Placement of a napkin under the vinyl dam to prevent saliva leakage onto the patients face and to increase patient comfort.
    5. Placement of a mesh drape over the patient’s head and neck to protect the patient from any aerosol spray.
    6. Administration of compressed (oxygen) air into the nose via a nasal canula.
    7. Activation of an external “Negative Ion Generator” and collection plate to safely trap any mercury particulate in the air.
    8. Activation of external air suction, the “Elephant Suction,” to further insure removal of any mercury particulate or odorous vapors.
    9. Placement and activation of low volume suction tip under the vinyl dam to collect saliva.
    10. Activation of high volume suction, to surround the tooth during the mercury amalgam removal process.
    11. Constant external water spray by doctor’s high-speed handpiece, and assistant’sair-water syringe, to flush mercury particulate into the suction line.
    12. Removal of the amalgam fillings and/or other fillings, crowns, or bridges that appear to be biologically incompatible with the patient. All restorations will be replaced with the most biocompatible replacement materials available.
    13. Adjustment and polishing of the restored teeth will be completed in a comprehensive and precise fashion to help insure immediate adaptation and acceptance within the patient’s existing occlusion (bite).
    14. Gargling of Chlorella (Chlorella wash) to enhance total extirpation of any loose mercury in the mouth.
    15. Intravenous vitamin C and/or Homeopathic remedies may be administered before, during and after the performance of dental work, to help neutralize any stress from the dental treatment.

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.
