Toxic mercury is one of the key components for dental amalgams, and that means that many patients who want to have a healthy mouth decide that they need to have it removed – and in some cases, it is a requirement of other treatment such as restoration. However, this could cause problems if the amalgam is disturbed, as it could release mercury into the patient’s mouth and then bloodstream.
That is why at our dental practice, we go the extra mile and make extraordinary safeguards to ensure that our patients are not exposed to mercury when they request that their amalgam is removed. Introducing the use of homeopathic remedies has been a brilliant way to help the process, both before and after, to remove any of the negative side effects.
We find it utterly bizarre that there are dentists at other practices that are still happy to give their patients mercury fillings, especially when it has been scientifically proven to be a toxic poison to humans – but although we cannot change what they do and what they have done in the past to some of our patients, we know we can prevent any further harm from happening.
Homeopathic Remedies Work
Homeopathic remedies can be taken the day before, the day of, and the day after your appointment to have your amalgam removed, and they are typically small pellets that you can take from a pill box. These remedies have been scientifically calculated to do the most amount of good possible for our patients, so that their treatment goes well and their body heals nicely. They also have the ability to fight off the mercury toxins, in the unlikely outcome that some is knocked from the main.
Arnica is one of our central homeopathic remedies, a substance taken for centuries to help with nerve pain and muscle pain, perfect for reducing bruising over the treatment. During your amalgam filling it is likely that you will experience bruising and redness, and perhaps even swelling, but the arnica will lessen that. Another useful remedy is hypericum.
As well as dealing with the physical side of the amalgam removal, we also prescribe homeopathic remedies for those who are frightened of the dentist in order to lessen anxiety, calming the mind, and helping them to prepare emotionally for the amalgam removal. Aconite and gelsemium are particularly good for this.
A Long History Of Effectiveness
Since the 1800s homeopathy has been used by medical practitioners, and it is excellent for supporting traditional modern medicine now. After all, there is only so much that modern medicine can achieve, and when using the medicine of similars which is a central part of homeopathy, we can offer additional treatments to patients who would really benefit from extra care. These possibilities are not just limited to amalgam removals, or even dental offices, but can be used in almost any medical setting.
Different medications have been developed over the 20th century, and this led to a decrease in the use of homeopathy – and yet many dentists and doctors, as well as patients, are starting to rediscover the amazing power of what homeopathy can do. This treatment option is widely accepted in Europe, and is starting to be better understood here in the US over time. In fact, you may already be using a homeopathic remedy like eye drops without even realising it.
Homeopathy will not make your mercury filling less toxic, so you should still have it removed by your dentist, but utilizing the power of homeopathic remedies will prevent any mercury that is disturbed during that treatment from harming you.
