I spent the morning in a beautiful heated massage chair. Unfortunately this was not all for pleasure. Today was the day all of my mercury amalgams were removed. My dentist Dr Tom Trevathon has a wonderful heated massage chair to help ease the ordeal.
This is the only dentist I have been to where even the needles didn’t hurt. I was made extremely comfortable by Alyse his assistant as he worked to remove the 5 little blighters that are releasing toxins into my body. Adios and good riddance to them, I say.
I was in good hands, all safety precautions where in place to make sure that no vapour was inhaled or amalgam particles swallowed. As you can see in the picture I had a rubber dam neatly placed around the tooth to be worked on, glasses to protect my eyes and my nose inhaled pure fresh oxygen (an a little laughing gas to reduce any discomfort). The room’s air was turned over very rapidly and Dr Tom used a slow drill very carefully to drill out the silver bits. This all took about 2 1/2 hrs stopping for rest and toilet stops as required.
So as you can see I have all white teeth now.
I experienced no pain, not even after the procedure I was detox symptom free as well – maybe my preparation was sound. A word of warning to those who might replicate this procedure – don’t buy a juice for lunch after – you just don’t have the suck required in those cheeks. I am just glad I had my lips back and was able to minimise the spillage.
