Side effects after amalgam removal
Q: I’m a woman in my mid-30s. There are eight amalgam on both sides that are about 15 years old. I’m thinking of going to the dentist and removing amalgam and replacing it with something else. I saw on the internet that when you remove this, you can cut the top part of your teeth to a certain extent and cause various side effects. I wonder what side effects can actually occur. Can I live my daily life right after I remove it?
A: Amalgam can open the boundary or have cavities inside your teeth after a long period of treatment. If there’s no problem, you don’t have to replace it.
To replace it with gold or other materials, first check the removal area for cavities. If I have a cavity, I will remove that part. In addition, the teeth will be trimmed again to suit other prosthetics to be replaced. Therefore, the teeth are more or less shaved. It doesn’t matter as long as the treatment area is not wide.
If your cavities are very large, you won’t have much hemorrhoids left. If you remove more hemorrhoids, you can get on the nerves. If you have cavities inside your teeth, you must remove them. Don’t worry, it won’t interfere with your daily life after cavity treatment.
