That is right in theory. Check out this link for the recommend safe removal procedure:
The dentist I am seeing doesn’t actually use a dam. He said that gets in the way of the other equipment he uses for safely removing the filling. Instead of a dam he uses something called a ‘throat sponge’, whatever the hell that is. In addition to that he clamps a little suction thing right around the tooth itself as seen in that link above, I’ll have my own source of clean oxygen piped in through a mask over my nose, i’ll get goggles and all exposed skin will be covered, and finally there will be a huge suction thing right next to my face. Apart from the substitution of the rubber dam for a sponge, it sounds very much like that link above.
The amalgam removal and replacement is £125 which is quite reasonable I think. However, I have to get a £35 initial dental consultation which is a legal requirement as I am not currently a patient of theirs. Moreover, I’m going to have to get a train over to Manchester to get it done as the treatment in Leeds was a little bit sketchy and a lot more expensive.
Here’s a link of the place I am getting it done:
There is no indication that you get your own source of oxygen on the website, but I called them up and they talked me through the procedure.
Are you planning on doing a proper chelation protocol, Jo? Good luck when it comes to doing the research, there is as much conflicting information about amalgam out there as there is about candida.
