I was concerned about the mercury in the amalgam fillings I’d had on my teeth for many years. Dr Carpenter and Melissa Russ, ND, first consulted with me about the procedures for safely removing these and created a treatment plan. Phase 1 – remove the amalgam fillings and replace with safe composite resin fillings. Phase 2 – remove 2 crowns that have metals in them and highly likely, mercury, as well as another filling that is not amalgam, but suspect.
For Phase 1, I went in for a pre-screen, a dress rehearsal of the procedure and to check my blood pressure, pulse, and oxygenation. Dr Carpenter is good about stressing the importance of true deep breathing during procedures and in daily life.
The procedure itself was done under anesthesia with full protection against mercury toxins in place for me and Dr Carpenter as well as Jackie and Melissa.
They were all very caring, nurturing and did everything with sensitivity to my comfort. Dr Carpenter explained everything before, during and after the procedure. Jackie and the others were awesome.
I would recommend this dental practice to everyone for any kind of procedures. They focus on holistic principles, truly caring for their patients, and promoting healing.
