Tom, I have two root canal teeth with metal crowns.  I have been reading the same news related to root canals.  My dentist is a biosafe dentist, I posted his web address in my previous post, and he is recommending that I have the two teeth pulled and have implants put in place.  If you want to get away from having metal put in your mouth (which is advisable), they make porcelain implants, as well as porcelain crowns.  He said the bone and gums knit much better to porcelain as opposed to metal, since they are more biocompatible.  Plus, he has used them for ten years with no problems in terms of durability, etc. compared to metal.  Might be something you would want to check into.  My goal is to get all metal out of my mouth along with the root canals. 


Thanks for the info on porcelain implants. I wasn't aware of those.

I think it is too late for me to consider having all the many metal fillings removed. I have about 8 gold caps which I consider good. They are durable. Three have lasted more than 40 years and the others seem to be holding up very well. As far as I know: It is ONLY the caps that are gold and are placed on the usual amalgams that I think include some compound of mercury. I am going to be having at least one new cap done or installed. I actually like the look of the gold caps and they seem easy to keep clean. I am NOT in any way an expert on these issues. I just go along with what the dentists do. I have a hard time getting anything close to timely appointments. I live in a rural area.   ...Oscar

I believe I have read that gold is very compatible to the body.  I would see if they could save the gold caps and get rid of the mercury amalgam underneath.  I have a similar problem with my several crowns, there is mercury underneath because there wasn't enough tooth left to bond the crowns to, and back in the time every dentist used amalgams.  Here is something I was thinking about: if 'ormus' the monatomic element is composed of gold (they call it white gold), and does all kinds of good things for your body, I wonder if the gold caps could be giving the same effect?  If you never heard of ormus, check it out, it is too hard to explain, plus takes a leap of faith believing in it, however, the effects are touted in testimonials.
