Dental Clean-up

(This section on dentistry was contributed by Frank Jerome,

DDS)

Dr. Jerome: The philosophy of dental treatment taught in

America is that teeth are to be saved by whatever means available,

using the strongest, most long lasting materials. Long-term

toxic effects are of little concern. The attitude of the majority of

dentists is: whatever the American Dental Association (ADA)

says is OK, they will do.

A more reasonable philosophy is that there is no tooth worth

saving if it damages your immune system. Use this as your

guideline.

The reason dentists do not see toxic results is that they do not

look or ask. If a patient has three mercury amalgam fillings

placed in the mouth and a week later has a kidney problem, will

she call the dentist—or the doctor? Will they ever tell the dentist

about the kidney problem or tell the doctor about the three

fillings? A connection will never be made.

It is common for patients who have had their metal fillings

removed to have various symptoms go away but, again, they do

not tell the dentist. The patient has to be asked! Once the patient

begins to feel well they take it for granted, and don't make the

connection, either. If everybody's results were instantaneous,

there would be no controversy.

Find an alternative dentist. They have been leading the

movement to ban mercury from dental supplies. Not only mercury,

but all metal needs to be banned. If your dentist will not

follow the necessary procedures, then you must find one that

will. The questions to ask when you phone a new dental office

are:

1. Do you place mercury fillings? (The correct answer is NO.

If they do, they probably don't have enough experience in

the use of non-metal composites.)

2. Do you do root canals? (The correct answer is NO. If they

do, they do not understand good alternative dentistry.)

3. Do you remove amalgam tattoos? (The correct answer is

YES. Tattoos are pieces of mercury left in the gum tissue.)

4. Do you treat cavitations? (The correct answer is YES. By

cleaning them.) The complete name of cavitations is alveolar

cavitational osteopathosis. They are holes

(cavities) left in the jawbone by an incompletely extracted

tooth. A properly cleaned socket which is left after an extraction

will heal and fill with bone. Dentists routinely do

NOT clean the socket of tissue remnants or infected bone.

A dry socket (really an infected socket) is a common result.

These sockets never fully heal. Thirty years after an

extraction, a cavitation will still be there. It is a form of

osteomyelitis, which means bone infection.

Ninety percent or more of dental offices will not be able to

answer ANY of the above questions correctly. If you allow the

work to be done by a dentist who does not understand the importance

of the above list, you could end up with new problems.

Find the right dentist first even if you must travel hundreds of

miles. There are 6,000 to 10,000 dentists who should be able to

help. Some can do part of the work and refer you to a specialist

for the rest. Five hundred to one thousand of these dentists can do

it all.

Normal treatment cost is about $1,000 for replacement of 6 to

8 metal fillings including the examination and X-rays. For people

with a metal filling in every tooth, or for the extraction of all

teeth (plus dentures), it may be up to $3,000 (or more in some

places).

Remember, the simpler the treatment, the better. If the

dentist says that he or she can change your metal fillings to

plastic but it would be better to crown them, say “NO!”
