I had quite a disappointing visit to the IAOMT dentist three days ago, still recovering from the very stressfull and lenthy trip.
He convinced me to do the x-ray of both sides of my jaw,
which of course didn`t reveal anything new to me.
He could not tell anything about the metal crowns.
It will be VERY costly to replace them with zirconium ones.
The dentist said I don`t need to worry about their biocompatibility.
What is the chance that mercury or root canals
hiding inside the crowns???
That dentist is the only one here trained how to safely remove the Amalgam
so even if I go to a holistic dentist and he finds Amalgams
and\or root canals
hiding inside ,he won`t be able to safely remove them.
He wants to replace the Amalgams
with a BPA free composite filling. It might contain Bis-Gma, Bis-Dma or similar compound that can be degraded to BPA at some point .Even if decomposition into BPA is not happening those composite and sealants can leach Bis-Gma or other compounds that have questionable properties.
I already have quite a few composites so maybe it won`t make
much of a difference for me, what do you think?
However, those BPA-free fillings may also contain ingredients that are not bio-compatible with me and may cause health problems.
And what about the biocompatibility test?
will it help determine if I can tolerate it?
Still no idea what glue they will use....
He told me not to worry about the root canal
which has a composite filling. Knowing about the
awfull bacteria that live there, how could I?
I occasionally feel pain in my root filing .
It happens only in the morning ,when I eat hard food on it.
Even if I do get it pulled there won`t be a way to
confirm if it is fully cleaned and extracted properly.
No cavitat scanners in this country....
idk about thermal imaging ,ultrasound.
How will I be able to complete all of them?
it will take atleast three more trips, probably 4-5.
I wanted to get it all done for more than a year
and I`m quite depresed about all of this :`(
I really need your advice!
