Just a quick update to let you know how the removal of my Mercury Amalgam fillings is going. After the first course of treatment I have been looking forward to the second course of the treatment , but as the day dawned I have to admit the enthusiasm had somewhat been replaced by a little apprehension.
I had been taking the recommended tablets to assist with detoxification for a week prior to todays treatment, the expected duration of todays procedure was one and a half hours to remove four of the amalgams and replace with a non toxic hard wearing white composite. The first thing to sort out was whether the largest amalgam to be removed required a root feeling or not, this is sorted out by checking if the nerve is dead or alive, I can say catorgorically that the nerve is very much alive (nearly touched the roof when touched with some sort of electrical probe).
Thankfully I didn't require a root filling which pleased both myself and the dentist. So kitted up with all the necessary safety equipment and injections administered the procedure commenced and took a little under the expected one and a half hours.
I found it more tiring on this occasion than on the previous session, but I hadn't been feeling so well recently with disturbed sleep patterns due to increasing pain in my hips, groin and legs - typical symptoms of fibromyalgia.
So I'm half way through my treatment and am very satisfied with the dental work carried out so far. I can't wait for it to be completed so hopefully I can start to feel some benifits. If anyone wants to ask questions please feel free to leave your comments on the "comments page" and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
