Hi guys,wanted to ask your advice about Amalgam fillings. To be honest I don't know very much about mercury poisoning & metal-fillings & how they can affect Fibro/CFS sufferers but I know in some quarters it is thought they can have an impact on Fibro/CFS. Well,I currently have 4 amalgam fillings & don't have any real bother with my teeth,but after a visit to my dentist today he says I need to get one of these replaced. He says that through the NHS(the UK National Health Service) he can replace the filling with a standard amalgam for free or replace the filling with a white filling for £40(approx 80US$),thus leaving me with 3 amalgam fillings. The cost isn't an issue but I don't know either way if these fillings have any bearing on my Fibro symptoms. What I wanted to ask is? Are these white fillings as durable as the amalgams or do they require more maintenance/replacing than the standard amalgams. I'm due to go back next Thursday for the replacement filling & I'm undecided what to opt for. Any advice would be most appreciated as I was thinking if I was ever to get all my metal fillings replaced this would be an appropriate place to start. Thanks,Paul.
