Article of the month ? Trend Setting Technique for your Whole Body Health-The Safe Amalgam Removal Process

"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, relaxing environment.

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 www.drsrohrer.com to learn more about the safe amalgam removal precedure, and how it can affect your health in the long term.

Mercury Detoxification

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

  1. Pre Amalgam Removal
  2. • 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.

    Visit www.drsrohrer.com or call (561) 404-5951 for details on supplements

  3. Post Amalgam Removal (The day the last filling has been removed)
  4. Decide between Pharmaceutical or Natural

    a) Pharmaceutical
    • Do tolerance testing for DMSA with support of integrated physician
    • Re-evaluate in 3,6,9,12 months - once reduced or eliminated add brain food supplements. Everyone is different in the extent of their toxicity and how they detoxify. It is important to be patient.

    b) Natural
    Cilantro has been proven to chelate toxic metals from our bodies in a relatively short period of time. Combined with the benefits of the other ingredients, the following recipe for Cilantro Chelation Pesto is a powerful tissue cleanser. It is not only easy to make, but also really tasty. It's delicious on toast, baked potatoes, and pasta.

Safe Silver Filling (Amalgam) Removal

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 out.

• 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.
