What are the risks?

Amalgam is still used as a filling material by many dentists. Dental amalgam is a mixture of silver and various other metals, and it contains over 50% mercury. Mercury is one of the most toxic non-radioactive elements on our planet.

Mercury makes its way through our entire body, spreading through the digestive tract, and can be deposited in the liver, intestines, bones and brain. Mercury is detectable in the brain just a few hours after an amalgam filling is placed and damages the nerve cells there. Diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia are suspected to be caused by heavy metals such as mercury.

The advantages of an amalgam removal

Amalgam, as well as its other metal components, can lead to serious illnesses, even in small doses. Frequent headaches, migraines, depression, rheumatic disorders, visual disturbances, memory loss or colds can be the result of harmful amalgam fillings. Through detoxification and amalgam removal, your immune system will be cleansed and optimized for the long term.

In addition, your body will get rid of amalgam’s toxic legacy.

If a person has a large number of amalgam fillings, it is best to remove them in several sessions. Even the best precautionary measures sometimes cannot prevent the patient and the practitioner’s exposure to mercury.

What happens after amalgam removal?

The type of restoration recommended depends on the extent of the remaining healthy tooth structure. If the tooth structure is well preserved, a filling is preferred. Nowadays, fillings can be made from high-quality plastics and are light-cured. Ceramic inlays are an alternative to plastic fillings. These are produced by the dental technician, using CAD/CAM technology.

Ceramic materials are of the highest quality and are the most biologically compatible. In addition, the color of the dentures can be optimally adapted to the neighboring teeth. Ceramic fillings are therefore ideal for aesthetic dentistry. In the case of larger tooth substance defects, it may be useful to manufacture partial crowns or full crowns.

From a biological point of view, ceramic fillings are also the best tolerated. Their extended durability and tailor-made production represent other further advantages. An alternative to partial or full crowns made of ceramic are metallic materials or metal-ceramic materials. However, from a biological point of view, metals do not belong in the mouth.

Amalgam drainage

After the last amalgam filling is removed, the amalgam/mercury stored in the body should be drained out, i.e. rinsed out, in order to detoxify the body. For detoxification, the chlorella algae have proven to be an effective, and yet gentle remedy.

In the beginning, 2 to 4 tablets must be taken 2 to 3 times a day, with plenty of water, 30 minutes before eating. The dosage will then be increased at 8 to 9 tablets a day, depending on the individual tolerable dose. Chlorella algae promote the mobilization of many heavy metals from tissues, such as mercury, therefore one may experience uncomfortable symptoms: dizziness, nausea, heartburn, diarrhea, flu-like symptoms, headache, abnormal fatigue, a low mood, flatulence. Coriander and wild garlic may be used as a herbal remedy for further detoxification.
