l did not think dentists to-day used amalgam anymore. l had all my amalgam fillings removed nearly 30yrs ago - not long after being diagnosed with MS. l had read an article in the Times - about The Toxic Time-bomb in your mouth. And l even bought a book on it. My GP fully supported the article -which was written by a dentist. So l contacted the nearest Dental Hospital - which was Birmingham. l was given an appointment straightaway - and they arranged for me to have 4 fillings removed at a time. They took great care - using a rubber dam - which prevents any of the amalgam from being inhaled. The dentist and the nurse also have masks on. ln total l had 16 fillings removed. Yes, l was brought up at a time when dentists just kept on filling teeth. The composite filling l had done are still there - so have done very well. And l have never needed another filling since - which confirms my thinking that l never needed them in the first place.
The Dentist l saw - said that it would take the NHS 50yrs to acknowledge that the mercury fillings were causing so many health problems.And another 50 to act upon it. And they will never accept responsibility as they risked being sued. Mercury is the second most toxic poison known to man.
My advice is Yes have all mercury fillings removed - safely. Dentists and their staff have to have tests on hair and nails to see if they have absorbed a high level of mercury. They have to follow strict guidelines in disposing of the stuff as well. So does this make you feel safe!! l bet it doesn’t.
Anglers were banned from using lead weights when fishing - this was because of the harm done to swans and other water birds. lt attacks the spinal cord - leaving the poor bird unable to hold its head up and it eventually died.
Mercury was used by hat makers in the 18th century and most of them went mad - ie The Mad Hatter. And for many years dentists had the highest suicide rate - or Alcohol problems.
My disabilities improved after having my fillings removed - but most of the damage done is not reversible. But at least l know they are not still poisoning me.
