I just had all mine removed by a SMART certified biological dentist. I had 8 teeth involved - 4 on the left, 4 on the right. Some teeth had more than one filling. Done in 2 visits, 1 month apart. Total cost was around $5,600. This was done in South Carolina.
I was very concerned that the whole ordeal would make me feel worse, but so far, I'm okay. Last ones came out 5 weeks ago.
Overall, it was not as bad as I feared but was still quite uncomfortable. Four of the fillings had to be replaced with onlays, which involved getting temporary onlays to start and returning later to have permanent ones put in.
Each visit took about
2 hours. The first visit, I got squirmy and slightly panicky about
halfway through, but after a quick break, I was okay. At the second visit, I got "shocked" with one of the numbing shots, which felt like my tongue got stuck with the needle. It hurt. I jumped and hollered and my tongue went numb. Thankfully, I had no permanent nerve damage from it.
I had compatibility testing done with Biocomp Lab prior to replacement. I was given the option of purchasing supplements for detox and immune support (which I declined) to use prior to and for a few months after removals. During removals, I was given all the protective gear and oxygen and was given a slurry of charcoal and chlorella to swallow before and after.
I have no regrets. I do have sensitivity pain when chewing in one area that I've already talked to the dentist about
. He did something to try to make it better, but it still isn't right. I have one final appointnent next week. Hopefully it is fixable. I also have noticed more hot/cold sensitivity, which I didn't have before. Also, most of my molars had fillings, and the composites and onlays feel quite different from the amalgams and my natural teeth. Now the surface is more flat, and it is harder to chew because the teeth don't grip and tear food as well.
I have not done anything yet for chelation. I have been on Pectasol-C for over a year and started Pectaclear 2 months ago. Those are both supposed to slowly and safely detox metals. I have not had any kind of heavy metals testing done. As for chelation, I am inclined to heed Andy Cutler's warnings. Not sure if and when I will embark on chelation. It seems a dangerous, tedious, long-term commitment.
