If your metals poisoning
was from dentistry, a decision about what to do
after amalgam removal might be in your future.
Can an implant be safe?
The reality is that most of us became poisoned through dentistry. A mouthful of mercury laden, amalgam fillings usually means ongoing dental visits for repairs, removal and secondary fixes. Emotionally and financially we're drained.
In the end, the decision is yours and only your research will give you the answer. I did my research and in the end chose a zirconium implant over titanium. There was controversy among dentists and I will share that debate with you.
Both products are highly regarded. Because titanium is stronger there is great cause to use them, especially in molars. Zirconium does not have the strength of titanium, but it is a very successful product.
My IAOMT* dentist, who does not do implants was zirconium adamant. My dentist doing the implant was in favor of titanium. I finally asked why my IAOMT dentist preferred zirconium and he explained that although he does not install them, he does remove them for metals people who have shown a sensitivity to them.
That was Decision Made.
*An IAOMT dentist is a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. They have committed to using clean dentistry and do not use mercury. Their practices include the safe removal of mercury fillings.
