On choosing dentists, you might get some recommendations if you go to a large natural food store and ask all the managers who they go to, and why they chose that particular dentist.  Usually people like that are discriminating where their health care is concerned.

If these fillings are large enough to need inlays or onlays, it's not uncommon for them to cost as much as a crown.  And porcelain would definately be more durable than composite material, which is really just suitable for small fillings.

What are your options regarding your knee, dear kk?

You know, there's an independent store in Sherman Oaks that also has a pharmacy.  I'll go ask there.  I started a thread on my knee this morning.

Mr. KK is probably going to be getting more quotes/opinions on his teeth. In addition, this Mercury Free Dentist is the only one who has ever told him that he grinds his teeth at night, and that he needs this $1,500 guard to wear at night. He said he could tell by how Mr. KK's enamel is worn down.


My "Mercury Free" dentist also showed me pictures of wear patterns
on my teeth that he said indicated I needed the guard. The price was about half
of what you were quoted. I did pay for it.

However, I noticed that Walmart and some drugstores sell a guard that
is not custom fit for around $20. I wondered if it would have worked
nearly as well.

Selenium, selenium, selenium................is all I can say...........I would take a mix of selenomethonine and a methyl selenium...........this is very important for shuttling the mercury out of the body

also zinc, do you take zinc

Thanks for the reminder on selenium, Laura.

I would like to understand what role selenium and zinc have on heavy metal chelation.  Do you have time to explain some more?

Good!  Let us know if you get any useful recommendations.  This can be the safest way to choose a new health care practitioner.

I really do not think any chelation therapy is safe for heavy metals.  I'm very against chelation based on the chemical mechinism of it and the real life examples I have seen, I think it is over used and misused and causes many problems

these substances seem to pick up the metals but their 'hook' is not strong enough normally to transport them out of the body so they drop them, magnifying their effect now as free floating molecules in the body

Quoted from Victoria
I have been shopping around for a new dentist. I had a wonderful Holistic dentist that I started going to because I wanted to get the remaining mercury out of my teeth. Turns out he is 1/3 more expensive than any other dentist in town. So, I have kept up with cleaning and exams, and can't afford to get the actual work done.
Yesterday I chose a dentist who has been working mercury-free for 14 years, and uses safe removal practices. His prices are MUCH less than the "Holistic" dentist, and so once again, I am moving forward toward getting this toxic waste out of my teeth.

I am hoping that the removal will help with this fatigue I have been dealing with for the past couple of years. I do follow recommendations in the Fatigue book, get 8 1/2 hours of sleep a night, keep regular hours in my eating and sleeping, take some wonderful herbs for adrenal support, test well within the normal range for thyroid. So I'm down to the mercury as a possible cause. I also feel like my eyes and head are stuffed with cotton. I'm not talking about sinus congestion. I'm also not talking about memory problems. My mind works clearly, and my sinuses are quite clear these days. It's just a strange sensation, especially in and around my eyes, and in my cheeks when I smile.

I have been taking Chlorella daily and plan to increase the dose a bit when the procedures actually start.

Do any of you have experiences of symptoms of mercury overload, or relief of symptoms (after having mercury removed) that you would like to share?


Youre lucky. My holistic dentist is 3 times more expensive.  I am slowly but surely getting all the mercury removed from my mouth.  I was full of the stuff.  I also up my dosage of Chlorella after a visit.

Hi Arlene,
Good to talk with you again!  3 times more expensive?  There is no way I could afford those prices!  Are you saying you pay $3,000 for a crown?  Surely not!!

I did benefit a lot from my months of seeing the Holistic Dentist for exams and cleanings.  I learned a lot about what causes decay and how to successfully take care of our teeth.  That was a good thing that I will take with me no matter what dentist I see.  But I still shop carefully for dentists.  Some really do more harm than good.

I cringe when I think of all the years my old dentist kept pumping mercury into my family's teeth, even as I was telling him "Surely there's another alternative!  I don't want this stuff in our mouths!"  He was unresponsive and set in his ways.  Now, I'm paying out a lot of money to undo what he did!

My last visit I had 2 crowns @ $1,300 each.  My son goes to a different dentist because she didn't prescribe anything when he was in pain.  His dentist is cheaper, but I'd have to look at the bill to know by how much.

I also cringe to think of how much mercury my old dentist pumped into me.  I told my son to make sure he told his dentist - NO MERCURY!
