People who seek holistic, biological offices like ours aren’t your average dental patients. For one, they tend to come in having already done a lot of research about the mouth/body connection and how dental conditions may be playing a role in their overall health.
They understand why, for instance, a person might want to have their mercury amalgam fillings removed.
But it’s crucial to understand that because of the kinds of issues Dr. Kennedy talks about in the video above, it’s not enough to just take out the metal and restore the teeth anew with biocompatible composite or ceramic. It must be done safely.
To remove or not to remove is ultimately the patient’s choice – ideally, after having considered the pros and cons of each treatment option, including the option to have no treatment at all.
