Hello everybody,
I am new to this forum

I am searching high and low for a mercury free dentist in India who specializes in safe amalgam removal. By safe, I mean a dentist who uses a Rubber Dam, Respirator, high speed suction pipe and keeps the fillings cool during removal. I need to get it done as soon as possible.

If anyone knew ...you would get a reply.

I see my Chennai dentist now has a website: I didn't see this treatment listed. You call him:

Dr Rangarajan: 91-44-28133186 / 28131094

I know a clinic in East London (UK) that does it, but that wouldn't be much good to you or your bank balance

I don't know if you have any particular problem but amalgam fillings aren't necessarily a health risk for everybody.

Millions of healthy babies have been born despite their mothers having amalgam fillings.

I've had amalgam fillings for decades and don't have a problem, and I will only have them replaced when a filling has to be replaced anyway.

It is a whole controversy, of course. I know of one person who was actually diagnosed as needing to have her fillings removed. This was a UK hospital diagnosis. I know of many, many, on the fringe, and in the world of alternative medicine who are simply dogmatic that mercury fillings should be removed.

For whatever reason, Citrine has made her decision.

Thanks Nick, I appreciate it

The reason why I am freaking out is because I have been carrying these amalgam fillings in my mouth for the past 12 years and I have had loads of health issues specially related to the brains(phobias and anxiety attacks) so I am pretty sure it has to do something with my fillings and nothing else.

Can't comment.

Well, I could, but better not: it is, as I said, your decision.

Hi Citrine... Did a google search and came up with this article about mercury free dentistry in Goa & Kerela. The company is called IndianHealthGuru.com

http://www.prlog.org/10854425-low-co...nd-kerala.html

Not sure if they carry out safe mercury removal, but might be worth giving them a call.

Would be great to hear some feedback from you if you have any luck with this.

I just came to the forum for this same question, I took dental treatments in the past in kolkata and delhi for an emergency and next time I'm in India I wanted to have a dental check-up anyway, but would be interested in finding someone who also does safe mercury removal. I will ask my dentist in delhi. I was curious, as I might be not too far from goa soon, did you check with this studio? thanks

I have talked to my delhi dentist and he said they remove and replace amalgams with tooth colour (mercury free) ones, but they don't make difference in how they do it, in my opinion this practice is not common with Indian dentists as this kinds of metal intoxication in India is not considered. Which to me sounds obvious as the big cities pollution is probably worst than an unsafe tooth filling removal...

I have personally been diagnosed with a metal intoxication and I'm going to take the tests (which are medically recognized), but will have to remove two amalgams, which I will have to do in Italy.

I will go to India in December and was planning to have a dental check-up but at this point I will have to pay the 10 times higher fees of an Italian dentists. It's crazy, our average salaries are not higher than 3-4 times an average Indian salary, but our dentists' fees are 10 times higher than the Indian ones...

I think that many Indian dentists recognise the toxicity of mercury. When I first went to mine, and asked of he still used it, he was quite surprised that I might think he would! It was still being used, then (and probably still?), routinely, by British dentists. In fact it would have been hard to get anything else, except on a front tooth, on NHS treatment.

I do not know what the difference is now between our dentist fees and British ones, but I know I now find visits to the dentist horribly expensive

@nick, I believe Birtish dentist's fees are still lower than the Italian ones as my Birt relatives who live in Italy go to UK to have dental treatments.

I know that many Indian dentists now use mercury free amalgams, or at least the ones I went to did, but removal is different, as once you are disgnosed with a metal intoxication you need to have the old silver ones removed in a certain way which should not be toxic.

Yes, I know about that: I actually went through the process once (in London: I'd tell at once if it had been an Indian dentist of course). For myself, it was probably a waste of money, as, although the less mercury in my mouth the better, on general principles, I do not think that I have suffered any specific effect from it.

I'm not sure whether my dentist in Bangalore does this, but I can't imagine him not to. Check him out: http://www.drjagdishrohira.com/clinic.html

There's also another well reputed dentist in Bangalore: Dr. Shantaram (I find him a lot more expensive - but he's also a very very good dentist).

Both places are excellent - clean and professional.
Om Shanti
