I replaced my metal fillings because there was a lot of talk about them being negative to overall health, unfortunately, I didn't notice any improvement to my health afterward. I thought the fillings were linked to my AI issues, fatigue, migraines & IBD, but looking back, replacement wasn't a great idea for me. I have more sensitivity now. I actually ended up needing a root canal in two molars because of the deep fillings that were replaced... I'd love to not have any root canals, but there is no way I would ever sit through a procedure to remove them unless absolutely necessary. For me, dental work is the worst. I'd have to be under GA.
How do you remove a root canal? An extraction? Imagine going to that extent and not getting better? Then you're out a tooth, and you need an implant, all your teeth will shift if you don't pay a ton for the implant & I would imagine the implant itself contains some metals. I would be open to seeing a holistic dentist, but I notice they don't accept insurance.
Yes, that's the problem of replacement...you end up losing a bit more of the tooth...and then sensitivity...and sometimes root canals.
It's not an easy decision.
Yes, you extract the root canal substance...then you either do a bridge or an implant. Either Titanium or Zirconium.
