Re: Mercury levels
I had alot of fillings removed also about 4 years ago. The dentist you use should put a "dam" inside your mouth to prevent any particles from going down your throat. It sounds weird, like how am I going to breath?!? But you breathe through your nose and they have an airflow going around your face to "vacuum" up any floating particles.
The DMPS IV I had, about 30 minutes afterwards as I was going home, I got a real nervous, jittery feeling. For ME, I know drinking milk calms me, so I bought a bottle of milk and drank it. It helped. Later I read that the treatment not only pulls out the mercury, but other minerals as well. That could explain why I felt like I did.
One more note. I had read to take vitamin C before the dental procedure, as it chelates the mercury out the body. Well, I did. Bad idea. My numbing agents never would take well, and they'd have to give me more. And sometimes it didn't deaden the procedure. I read later that vitamin c interferes with the numbing block!
I hope some of this helps. I did feel a little better afterward, but nothing dramatic.
