Removing Amalgam Fillings

Published By Dr. Rachel Hall at 23 January, 2019

Can I get all my silver fillings removed at once?

The whole point of safe amalgam removal is to do it safely and at a pace that the body can handle. This means setting a schedule of removal that supports the body to release and excrete mercury in manageable quantities.

I do not encourage the removal of all your amalgam fillings over one visit. The exposures to mercury and particulates can be excessive in those instances where a large amount of material has to be removed. Occasionally, if the amount of amalgam is quite small, fillings can be removed in fewer appointments.

Safe Amalgam Removal

At Evolve Dental Healing Holistic Dentists we use a high volume suction, an auxiliary suction/air filtration unit near the patient’s face, rubber dam, alternative air/oxygen and techniques to avoid “scattering” the amalgam. And we also use electrically driven drill handpieces that maximise comfort and speed of operation and minimise aerosols and discomfort.

A rubber dam is applied around the teeth to be worked on. This contains debris within the dam reducing mercury exposure and allowing for more efficient removal and replacement.

The rule of thumb is no more than 4 fillings per visit, depending on their size and volume, and to allow time between sessions for detox and the body to deal with mercury dumping from the stores in cells and organs.
