Safe and Holistic Mercury Removal - I Use the SMART Technique from the IAOMT, Then I Rebuild the Tooth in Layers to Protect it From Future Root Canals and Leakage


Watch these three short videos to learn about the dangers of Mercury/Amalgam/Silver fillings:



What is Important to Know When Getting your Mercury or “Silver” Fillings Removed:

NEVER EVER EVER EVER GET YOUR TEETH CLEANED, POLISHED, ETC IF YOU HAVE ABSOLUTELY ANY MERCURY FILLINGS IN YOUR MOUTH OR MERCURY PACKED IN UNDER CROWNS, ETC. PLEASE WATCH THE ABOVE 3 VIDEOS TO LEARN WHY. THIS IS VERY VERY IMPORTANT.

Phase 1: Prep for Mercury-Removal

The first and foremost part of the procedure that is very important is protecting the patient and also the staff in the office. The basics are:

Air-filtration system for the room to catch loose particles. The patient should be given some sort of binder, such as charcoal, just before the procedure. This will neutralize any mercury ions.

Patient should be given oxygen under a protective mask to protect them from breathing particles. A dental dam should be used in order to prevent fragments from falling in the mouth. The patient should hold a second, high-powered vacuum, near the mouth in order to catch any air-borne particles during the procedure.

Phase 2: Safe Removal of Mercury While Protecting the Root

The mercury should be removed in the largest chunks possible to prevent small pieces or too much mercury gas being released.

A non-biomimetic dentist will need to grind out all the decay, which means that there is a risk that the dentist will grind too far down and accidently hit the nerve, causing the necessity of a root canal.

Phase 3: Build-up and Materials Used

You need to use materials that are holistic and biological in relation to your body: BPA-free composites and aluminum-free porcelain.

The best way to do this is with a Clifford Blood Test ( www.ccrlab.com).

Then you can be certain the materials you are building the tooth back up with are non-reactive.

By selecting a biomimetic dentist, you can rest assured they will NOT grind down your good tooth structure to place a crown, but they will slowly and meticulously build the tooth back up in layers of the filling material. They will protect the root and prevent a crown, a root canal and also strengthen your tooth and allow it to have a long and healthy life. This is what Mother Nature intended!

GETTING YOUR MERCURY SAFELY REMOVED IS LITERALLY JUST AS IMPORTANT AS BUILDING THE TOOTH BACK UP PROPERLY. ONLY A BIOMIMETIC DENTIST WILL BUILD THE TOOTH BACK UP IN A WAY TO PREVENT FUTURE ROOT CANALS AND CROWNS. IF YOU HAVE A NON-BIOMIMETIC DENTIST REMOVE YOUR FILLINGS, YOU WILL GET COMPOSITE FILLINGS WHERE THEY JUST CRAM IN THE COMPOSITE AND CURE IT, OFTEN NEEDING TO BE REPLACED IN ABOUT 5 YEARS. IT ALSO LEAVES YOU OPEN TO GETTING ROOT CANALS BECAUSE, OVER TIME, THE DECAY CAN SNEAK PAST THE FILLING MATERIAL (BECAUSE IT IS NOT SEALED) AND TRAVELS INTO THE ROOT AND INFECTS IT. THE ONLY HEALTHY WAY TO REBUILD THE TOOTH AFTER THE MERCURY IS REMOVED IS WITH BIOMIMETIC DENTISTRY.

Phase 4: Additional Information on Mercury Under Crowns, etc

Crowns that are partially metal (called PFM or porcelain-fused-to-metal) cannot be x-rayed to see if there is mercury packed under the crown.

In that case, the crown will need to be removed and inspected as there might be mercury packed in under them.

A biomimetic dentist will then create a layered foundation to seat and seal the crown, protecting the tooth from bacteria sneaking in under the crown causing a root canal.

The War in Your Mouth:

The IAOMT, the leader in science-based biological dentistry, states:
"Just one amalgam dental filling releases up to 15 micrograms of mercury daily – about 6 times the amount you'd ingest from contaminated seafood."
- www.iaomt.org

Dr. Tom McGuire, the leader in mercury-filling education, states:
"Mercury is the most poisonous, naturally occurring, non-radioactive substance on earth. It contributes to over 100 health issues, including heart disease, autism, chronic fatigue, MS, allergies, depression, memory loss and anxiety . . . to name but a few"
- dentalwellness4u.com

The American Dental Association, the world's largest and oldest national dental association, states:
"Dental amalgam is considered a safe, affordable and durable material that has been used to restore the teeth of more than 100 million Americans. It contains a mixture of metals such as silver, copper and tin, in addition to mercury, which binds these components into a hard, stable and safe substance. Dental amalgam has been studied and reviewed extensively, and has established a record of safety and effectiveness."
- http://www.ada.org/en/about-the-ada/ada-positions-policies-and-statements/statement-on-dental-amalgam

Who's right? How did this craziness ever get started?

Per Dr. McGuire's book, The Poison in Your Teeth, the following is the true information on the creation of the ADA (this information is NOT easy to come by – but you need this background information to understand this industry):

"In 1840 the first dental association, the American Society of Dental Surgeons (ASDS) was founded. Its purpose was to regulate and standardize dental treatment, give licensed dentists credibility and, more importantly, prohibit the use of amalgam fillings by member dentists."

"Prior to 1840, dentists fell into two categories: doctor-dentists, or physicians who also practiced dentistry, and barber-dentists. The term "barber-dentist" actually referred to a collection of tradesmen such as blacksmiths, silversmiths, cabinetmakers , and of course, barbers. Many of them moonlighted as pseudo-dentists who, until the invention of amalgams, were best known for cutting hair and pulling teeth. Old drawings depicting barber-dentists often showed a patient sitting in a barber's chair having a tooth pulled out – and not looking very happy about it."

"Initially the ASDS flourished. It moved forward with its efforts against amalgam fillings and, in 1843, passed a resolution banning their use by any ASDS member. This well-intended resolution stated that members who continued to place amalgam fillings could lose their license to practice dentistry. While the resolution was wonderfully sensible, it had no effect on barber-dentists. Patients were still coming to them for amalgam fillings, they were making a lot of money, and they weren't at all concerned about the health hazards of mercury. So why worry about what the ASDS had to say? They didn't"

"It didn't take long for ASDS member dentists to realize they were losing patients to barber-dentists who were still offering the cheaper and longer-lasting amalgam fillings. Watching this sizable source of income slipping away, a significant number of ASDS dentists decided they wanted to use amalgam fillings and left the ASDS. As more and more dentists left the society, the ASDS saw the writing on the wall and disbanded for lack of members. It wasn't long after that the dentists who supported the use of amalgams got together to form their own dental association – the American Dental Association (ADA), founded in 1859. In effect, the ADA was formed so member dentists could generate revenues from placing amalgam fillings without fear of losing their licenses. The same association still regulates and controls the dental profession today – and continues to adamantly support the use of amalgams."

Ahhhh, now it makes sense...

Yep, I figured that would help. You can thank Dr. McGuire for that. We use his books and materials in our office for patients to use. I'm also a personal friend of Dr. McGuire.

So that should help you understand the situation. For whatever reason, this information is not easily found – maybe because it's not being promoted at all. Or maybe… it's being actively hidden.

Without saying, the above is why we are part of the IAOMT and also Dr. McGuire's Mercury-Free Dentist Directory, but we are not part of the ADA.

IMPORTANT: "SILVER FILLING," "AMALGAM," AND "MERCURY FILLING" ALL MEAN EXACTLY THE SAME THING.

Well, now that you want to get those things out, here's how we will help you do it:

IMPORTANT!!! Removing the existing mercury from your mouth IS NOT a process to be undertaken without observing the strictest of protocols to ensure safe mercury removals. When this job is done improperly you can expose yourself to unacceptable amounts of mercury. This leads us to state, without reserve, that either you have the mercury removals done properly or LEAVE THEM IN PLACE.

To drill out an existing amalgam filling would mean heating the materials. Heat transforms solid mercury particles into vapors, which can then be breathed into the lungs and absorbed through the skin. Microscopic mercury particulates are so small that they, too, can be inhaled and absorbed through tissues they land on as the drill sends them in various directions both in and outside of the mouth.

Our process involves additional protection for the patient, our staff, and the environment such as supplemental oxygen, protection for the skin, air filtration, and precision cutting techniques that keeps amalgam from heating.

Additionally, our patients are given activated charcoal before their procedure. Activated charcoal binds to mercury molecules in the body and safely escorts them away.

Patients who are interested in an advanced, supervised detoxification from heavy metals and mercury are recommended to Moses Nutrition in Glendale to do an all-natural, food-based, gentle, long-term detox.

How it Works

1. Educate Yourself
I am not your average dentist. It's important you understand what I do so that you can make an educated decision on treatment after your exam. My free course is the best way to do that. You can sign up for free below. You can also watch my Dr. Pompa interview on my About the Doctor page.
2. Submit a Form or Call In
Submitting a form is best way to contact us and also allows you to receive my free course. We generally are booking 1-4 weeks out for new patients. Due to heavy volume from my Dr. Pompa interview, it may take longer than expected to hear back from us. Please enjoy my free course in the mean time! I made it for YOU.
3. See if We Are the Right Fit
We can go over ballpark financing over the phone and answer some of your questions. Our cost is around $700 per tooth for smaller restorations or $2,200 per tooth for larger restorations. We can help you file with your insurance but we do not file on your behalf. We do not do 1-tooth-dentistry but can give you a recommendation to other dentists who do. Call us, we will help!
4. Come in For a 90 Minute Exam
My initial exam and x-rays is $295. We will get to know each other and also do a full 90 minute clinical exam. This step is NEVER rushed. You will have NO mysteries about your mouth and complex cases are VERY welcome. It's time to end your dental disaster once and for all. Compatibility between us is key before getting involved with treatment! I will print you a full treatment plan with pricing and sequencing. Average treatment plans range from $10,000-$65,000.
5. Go Over Financing and Begin
Your treatment plan is broken down and options are given to HANDLE YOUR ENTIRE MOUTH. I don't do "duct-tape dentistry" and I want a product of a healthy and functional mouth FOR LIFE, so please be ready to confront your entire mouth or large sections. Any scheduled work needs to be pre-paid prior to scheduling. This allows me to fix your mouth RAPIDLY (often in 4-6 weeks). We often book 4-10 hour appts to get you rolling FAST towards enjoying your new mouth.

For Out-of-Town Patients:

I LOVE to help patients that are coming in from out-of-town. We can have it so that we can do the most amount of work in the fastest period of time while also reducing the amount of appointments you need. On the first appt we can do the full exam, xrays and impressions all within around 2 hours. Then we can prep everything and coordinate with any surgical aspects and lab work. Then, about 2-3 weeks later, we can bring you in for a very large appt to get everything rolling. We can even do 2 very large days back-to-back - like a Saturday and a Monday or a Friday and a Monday. Ideally, you can stay in town for a couple of days to verify we're all stable, then you can leave if you want. Then we would bring you back one more time for a weekend like that and we will generally be able to do most of your case in that time frame. If you're mainly veneers, it's a much easier case. But if you have a very complex case and quite a bit of complex decay, it can change the above but the basic layout is 1-2 large appts over a weekend every 2-4 weeks. But it all really comes down to what you want and how aggressively you want to complete work. In this way we can get a fully biomimetic restoration - giving you long-lasting functionality, aesthetics and comfort - while also compressing time to be as efficient as possible for you. I know you're busy and your time is VERY valuable and I will always work diligently to give you the best available dentistry while at the same time protecting your schedule and your personal life. All my dentistry is one-on-one so when you come in for your appointment, it's all about you. We're a team together in this project and I'm not running from room-to-room, you get my FULL attention to get a PERFECT product.
