Minamata Convention on Mercury: Banning of Amalgam in Dentistry
The bad news is that I had to have a crown replaced in order to fix a cavity beneath the crown.
High, high stress as I did not know how I would react to the novocaine and fear that I might land up in the hospital, where medical smells would make everything worse.
Folks on the Facebook Histamine Intolerance group suggested a novocaine without epinephrine, and my dentist agreed to use it.
The good news is that all went well and an old “silver” filling was removed in the process. I was in the chair for almost two hours–it was a messy, difficult procedure. I am now waiting for the crown to be finished so it can be installed.
I have posted about “silver” fillings being 50% mercury before this post. These fillings “off-gas” every time one chews, which can cause chronic health problems. Mercury is terribly poisonous for human beings.
Here is a progress report on what is being done here and in Europe to stop the use of “silver” fillings.
