Dr. Joel Sanders, D.D.S.
Over the past 20 years of my dental practice, my interest in holistic dentistry has grown and made an impact on thousands of patients of all ages.
After completing a traditional dental education at Northwestern University in Chicago, I had a desire to learn more about healthcare topics, nutritional supplements, and how to help patients feel their best.
At that point, words like “holistic” and “biocompatible” were not common. From my undergraduate years at the University of Illinois, I had been interested in using natural foods and supplements to stay healthy. In dentistry, it made sense for me to follow a holistic approach for my practice.
Proper amalgam removal :
Protocol for Amalgam Removal
For your safety, amalgams must be removed properly. Specific guidelines must be taken to prevent mercury and other metals from being released into your body.
This video, courtesy of the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology), demonstrates why it’s crucial to use our protocol in proper amalgam removal.
Taking Precautions To Prevent Absorption Of Mercury Vapors…
Vapors may enter through eyes, nose or mouth. This occurs most often
through the oral mucosa of cheeks, gum, tongue and palate.
To keep patients at optimal health, we recommend these five important steps:
- Use of a rubber dam.
- Use of a low-speed drill.
- Use of two different vacuum systems.
- X-ray taken after amalgam removal.
- Use of chlorella.
