Four years ago, my wife decided to get her amalgam fillings removed while we were on holidays in Costa Rica. The amalgam fillings had turned grey and black, so she had them changed for white fillings.
I didn’t realize it at the time, but her initiative became for me, the beginning of a new awareness regarding the dangers of amalgam fillings, the challenge of removing these fillings and reclaiming my own health.
I have had a mouth full of silver amalgam fillings for over 40 years. I went for a consultation with Dr. France Chevalier, an Ottawa dentist, in September, 2011 and I had the shock of my life.
I had decided to get my amalgam fillings removed because they contain about 50% mercury, one of the most dangerous and obnoxious elements on the planet, and my dentist in Cornwall, Ontario refused to remove them. He told me amalgam fillings were perfectly safe, that the mercury was inert in my mouth and there was no good reason to remove them.
