My clinical experience after having exchanged amalgam fillings and other metals on my patients since the mid-eighties are so surprisingly good that it would not be an overstatement to say that all patients benefit from it.

My study "Elimination of symptoms by removal of amalgam from mercury poisoned patients, as compared with a control group of average patients" is published in "Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine", 1993; 8: pp.145-148.


This findings presented here suggest a correlation between many health complaints and mercury amalgam fillings. Removal of amalgam fillings result in significant improvement of these symptoms. These same symptoms which are improved or eliminated in amalgam-removal patients are present but undiagnosed in general polulation.


Replacement of amalgam and sometimes removal of gold crowns, bridges and metallic porcelain crowns and replacement with one of the patient`s biocompatible plast materials has significant positive effect on symptoms and complaints of most patients. On average, 88% of the symptoms specified in this investigation either disappear or improve as indicated by responses taken at least one year after amalgam removal.

All 120 patients continue to come for check-ups in the clinic and will continue to fill out questionnaires every few years.

This research shows that 9 out of 10 health problems improved or disappeared completely after one year.

Another of my studies: "Symptoms before and after proper amalgam removal in relation to serum-globulin reaction to metals" ispublished in "Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine", Vol 11, No. 4, pp. 195-203, 1996


The results of this study indicate that proper amalgam removal - and in some cases removal of all the other metals too - and replacement with biocompatible composites - can eliminate or reduce 80% of the classic symptoms of chronic mercury poisoning.

These results also show that the strength of an individual's serum-globulin reactions, to many metals used in dentistry, especially the five metals present in amalgam, has important implications for recovery.


Many symptoms commonly associated with mercury intoxication can be related to harmful effects from metals used in dentistry. About 16,500 observations were gathered during the prolonged study of these 118 patients; these data indicate that about 80% of the symptoms and complaints were eliminated or reduced one to four years after removal of dental metals, especially amalgam metals (mercury, silver, copper, tin and zinc) and proper replacement with biocompatible plastic.

This study confirms other classic and scientific results and suggests that dentists should avoid the use of metals because of the reactions they clearly cause in many patients.

The greatest positive reactions are shown by the group with the mildest blood serum-globulin test reaction for the amalgam metals. This suggests that the determining factor for the degree and rate of recovery is dependent on the patient`s individual tolerance and degree of reaction to certain metals.
