Trend Setting Technique for your Whole Body Health-The Safe Amalgam Removal Process
“Lets face it …this is a procedure (amalgam removal) that just about every patient has been through or will have to go through at some time in t
here life. It is a procedure that has been performed the same way in dentistry for nearly a century. We in the dental community perform this procedure many times a day. Knowing what we now know…It only makes sense to perform it, on a routine basis, in a way that will minimize the chances of adverse affects for all involved”
Thomas Rohrer D.M.D.
As part of our transition to a more holistic, whole body health approach, we are now offering a Trend Setting Technique for your Whole Body Health: safe amalgam removal.
Traditionally, silver fillings have been removed without regard for whole body health impact. However, several studies over the last five years have proven that the mercury contained in silver fillings could be harmful and could lead to health complications for the patient.
The challenge you face when you have your old silver fillings removed is you may ingest some mercury in the process. Thus, the mercury can travel through your digestive track to the rest of your body, possibly affecting your immune system and increasing the level of heavy metal toxicity in your body. As a result, you could suffer appetite loss, anemia, lower resistance to infection and other mercury related symptoms.
Drs. Rohrer are among the few doctors in South Florida to address this issue proactively, in that they minimize the risk of mercury poisoning during the removal process through a carefully planned procedure. This requires not only professional training, but also the use of unique technology, such as the powerful industrial air cleaning system ,the IQ Air VOC Emissions and Infection Control Air Purifier, which reduces the amount of mercury vapors. They also use an oxygen nebulizer, which further ascertains that the air you are breathing during the process is pure and mercury free. Powdered charcoal and chlorella are placed in your mouth under the rubber dam (a device that physically keeps the drilling material out of your mouth). Both these substances have the ability to absorb mercury particles before they get absorbed into your system. ?The fillings will be taken out with as little drilling as possible, in as large chunks as possible, to minimize the amount of mercury vapor released into the air. All these technologies and techniques lend to the process being accomplished In a more safe, relaxing environment.
As a result, both the patient and the doctor minimize their exposure to mercury and can help avoid any complications derived from the exposure to this dangerous material.
Safe amalgam removal is a standard procedure at Drs. Rohrer office, meaning that the cost of removing an amalgam filling in a more safe, natural way has the same cost as doing it the traditional way. Drs. Rohrer value the health of their patients. Their philosophy is to prevent, rather than treat.
