Setting Technique for your Whole Body Health-The Safe Amalgam Removal
"Lets face it
this is a procedure (amalgam removal)
that just about every patient has been through or will have to go
through at some time in there life. It is a procedure that has been
performed the same way in dentistry for nearly a century. We in the
dental community perform this procedure many times a day. Knowing
what we now know
It only makes sense to perform it, on a routine
basis, in a way that will minimize the chances of adverse affects
for all involved"
Thomas Rohrer D.M.D.
As part of our transition to a more holistic, whole body health approach,
we are now offering a Trend Setting Technique for your Whole Body
Health: safe amalgam removal.
Traditionally, silver fillings have been removed without regard for
whole body health impact. However, several studies over the last five
years have proven that the mercury contained in silver fillings could
be harmful and could lead to health complications for the patient.
The challenge you face when you have your old silver fillings removed
is you may ingest some mercury in the process. Thus, the mercury can
travel through your digestive track to the rest of your body, possibly
affecting your immune system and increasing the level of heavy metal
toxicity in your body. As a result, you could suffer appetite loss,
anemia, lower resistance to infection and other mercury related symptoms.
Drs. Rohrer are among the few doctors in South Florida to address
this issue proactively, in that they minimize the risk of mercury
poisoning during the removal process through a carefully planned procedure.
This requires not only professional training, but also the use of
unique technology, such as the powerful industrial air cleaning system
,the IQ Air VOC Emissions and Infection Control Air Purifier, which
reduces the amount of mercury vapors. They also use an oxygen nebulizer,
which further ascertains that the air you are breathing during the
process is pure and mercury free. Powdered charcoal and chlorella
are placed in your mouth under the rubber dam (a device that physically
keeps the drilling material out of your mouth). Both these substances
have the ability to absorb mercury particles before they get absorbed
into your system. ?The fillings will be taken out with as little drilling
as possible, in as large chunks as possible, to minimize the amount
of mercury vapor released into the air. All these technologies and
techniques lend to the process being accomplished In a more safe,
As a result, both the patient and the doctor minimize their exposure
to mercury and can help avoid any complications derived from the exposure
to this dangerous material.
Safe amalgam removal is a standard procedure at Drs. Rohrer office,
meaning that the cost of removing an amalgam filling in a more safe,
natural way has the same cost as doing it the traditional way. Drs.
Rohrer value the health of their patients. Their philosophy is to
prevent, rather than treat. Please call us at 561.404.7782 or go to

can affect your health in the long term.

It is well-established science that mercury is a toxic substance.
People are exposed to mercury in different ways:
Drinking contaminated water
Eating fish contaminated with mercury
Leaching of mercury from badly fitting dental fillings.
From vaccinations containing thimerosal.
The acceptable amount of mercury in the human body is 0.
Mercury Detoxification Process is aimed at reducing/eliminating
mercury from the body.
Stages of Mercury Detoxification Process
- Pre Amalgam Removal
Take fecal metals test, blood and/ or, hair analysis to
establish baselines for future objective monitoring.
Do a subjective symptom evaluation to establish baselines
for future subjective monitoring.
Do tolerance testing for suggested supplements.
Begin taking recommended supplements to prepare for removal
of mercury amalgam fillings . Supplements include Multiple Vitamins
, Vitamin C, Minerals, Amino Acids , Enzymes and Garlic Recommendations.

Safe Silver Filling (Amalgam)
Silver fillings are removed from patients' teeth because:
A filling is worn out or broken
Decay around the filling
For holistic health reasons to reduce mercury exposure
This removal process can cause a tremendous amount of mercury to be
absorbed by their body and potentially have adverse health effects.
To help prevent this, we believe safety precautions, known as Safe
Amalgam Removal, should be used so the person won't swallow or breathe
mercury vapor while the fillings are being drilled out and we take
the following safety precautions:
Safety glasses are put over your eyes to protect them.
We have you breathe pure oxygen through a nasal cannula (tube).
This will minimize your breathing the air right around your face,
which is full of mercury vapor.
A rubber dam will be placed over your mouth. This is a sheet
of rubber that helps keep the mercury from going down your throat.
Copious amounts of cold water will be constantly squirted on
the filling as it's being drilled out, to keep the temperature down.
We use an electric drill because it turns at slower revolutions
per minute, producing less heat and less mercury vapor.
A High Volume Suction device will be used. This suction pulls
all particles away from the tooth as the filling is being drilled
Powdered charcoal and chlorella are placed in your mouth under
the rubber dam. Both these substances have the ability to absorb mercury
particles before they get absorbed into your system.
The fillings will be taken out with as little drilling as possible,
in as large chunks as possible, to minimize the amount of mercury
vapor released into the air.
Drs. Rohrer use 4x magnifiers to see minute details. This could
include faint cracks, leaking crowns or fillings, fit on new crowns
or fillings and gum problems. This is crucial to excellent care.
The treatment room has a powerful industrial air cleaning system
which reduces the amount of mercury vapors. The IQ Air VOC Emissions
and Infection Control Air Purifiers are highly specialized air cleaning
systems that are designed to control Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
and microbiological contaminants and odors.
