Frequently Asked Questions

You might be thinking: get me to the nearest biological dentist so I can get all the heavy metal and toxic materials out of my mouth, and pronto.

You’d be right. You’d also be dead WRONG! What we call The Right Thing Done The Wrong Way. 


What we do is Total Dental Revision


What is Total Dental Revision?

“Total Dental Revision, is a combination of balancing the blood chemistry and following the protocol of a series of steps found to produce the best results over the past 40 years of treating  toxic dental patients.”

Why Nutrition Diagnostics Works With Eric Davis Dental?

1. Do all Mercury amalgams (Silver Fillings) Leak?
Perhaps a better term would be vaporize. Mercury vaporizes off the surface of amalgam fillings 24/7. Mercury also infuses into the pulp chamber of the tooth and enters the blood stream. The interaction of 5 metals constantly keeps amalgam giving off mercury as well as copper and other corrosion products (16 of them). Chewing food is but one way that mercury release in increased by hundreds up to thousands of percent. It has several different routes in which it can enter the body. None are healthful.

2. Why should I not have a ROOT CANAL done?
Root canals are recommended when a tooth has been fractured, or when decay has entered the nerve chamber and created much pain. Often the body calcifies the tooth membranes, and allows it to remain. Unusual as it sounds, the body does not like dead structures in it, and a healthy body will try to reject it. Pain requiring antibiotics and pain pills are frequently used until the immune system stops working in that area. Root canals produce toxins that can increase or create many autoimmune diseases.

3. Are implants considered a safe replacement for my teeth?
 "anything implanted into bone will create an autoimmune challenge. The only difference is the length of time it takes for a disease to appear." Mast Cell Activation Syndrome can be triggered by implants root canal treatment, mercury and cavitations  We have personally seen numerous diseases with an unknown origin that may have been created by implants. It is a popular dental treatment, but not recommended for people interested in maintaining the best health.

4. Are there symptoms and diseases that are related to dental materials and procedures?
There are dozens of diseases and hundreds of symptoms that have been related to various dental materials. Toxicity is not generally considered when manufacturing dental materials. Durability in the hostile environment of the mouth is of more concern. Mercury is a good example, as are beryllium, nickel, root canals and cavitations.

5. Is laser treatment for cleaning of root canals and cavitations considered a safe treatment?
In both root canal sockets and cavitation linings, the big concern is the anaerobic bacteria. These are ones that live in the absence of oxygen. Botulism and gangrene are examples of anaerobic bacterial action. Bad bugs. If laser can kill all the bacteria, who is going to remove the dead bacteria, or the dead bone lining the sockets? There is no blood supply here. Laser only kills, does not clean debris. Other techniques are required to leave a clean area that can fill in with bone and new blood vessels.

6. Will having dentistry alone solve my problems?
Removal of toxic dental materials will cut off the supply of toxins, but that does nothing toward healing and repair. Balancing the body chemistry is required to supply the proper raw materials to bring about healing. Remembering what gets measured gets managed, but on the same hand not everything that can be counted counts and not everything that counts can be counted. 

With respect to results, biological systems unlike cars and other mechanical systems have many variables. We are attempting to control those variables to achieve a measurable outcome. We can't do the work for you but by using your chemistries it gives us a sound strategy to advise which direction to take through this ‘health maze’.

 So when looking at a chemistry we must always consider up and down stream events and not in isolation. What we see in a chemistry is an accommodation of survival, as if the body is always striving to win.

Body chemistry should be thought of, as the language that the body uses to give itself instruction, continually, 24/7, for meeting all of the demands and challenges placed upon it at that specific moment in time when the specimen was collected. 

Once you see chemistry in this light, then you begin placing yourself in the body’s shoes, asking quite simply “why would I do that”? 

Should I remove my root canals or have my amalgams removed if I have to choose between the two?
This is like saying, should I have the left or right wheel of my airplane on the runway when landing? You are begging for a crash, and will likely have your wish granted.

7. After starting my revision how soon should I get it completed?
Observations have shown that if all the removal procedures (this does not count placing crowns and bridges) are accomplished within less than 30 days, healing is good. The longer over 30 days the procedures take from the initial removal, the less positive response one can expect. Frequently, when more than 6 months lapse between start and finish, the patient may find that they are worse off than when they started.

8. Why is vitamin B-12 as a supplement or additive dangerous?
Many Universities have published articles on the ability of Vitamin B-12 to convert mercury vapor into the much more deadly "Methyl mercury". Methyl mercury knows no barriers, and creates far more havoc than other mercury chemicals, because of its ability to travel anywhere in the body without inhibitions. Sometimes the effects of high doses of Vitamin B-12 (over 50 micrograms) take months to correct.  Methylated folic acid is also of concern.

9. What are my nutritional needs and requirements after being affected by mercury and root canal toxins?
We seek a client's "Ancestral Diet", or foods that the past 2000 years of ancestry that produced you. Your blood chemistry will divulge how much carbohydrate, protein and fat your specific body requires, as well as telling how well you digest these foods. In addition, blood tells us which supplementation (if any) that you need.

10. What is the first step for a dental revision?
As with any adventure, it is best if one becomes educated in the process and expectations that dental revision and balancing body chemistry would do for you. You cannot test drive the results, so you should familiarize yourself with these aspects. Even though any mercury is damaging to adjacent tissues, search to see if your diseases and symptoms are similar to those seen to improve upon correcting your body chemistry and doing dental revision.

11. When and what should I do for detoxify?
Foremost, remember that Detoxification is Retoxification. We have seen disasters precipitated by over detoxification with too strong a medications and too large a dosage. Detoxification, or releasing mercury from stores in the body is no real trick. The secret is in elimination. Just because you have moved mercury from your arm bone to your brain does not mean you have detoxified properly.

12. I feel fine; do I really need to balance my body chemistry?
So often people say, "Why wasn't I told?" It is easy to avoid buying life insurance until the third engine of the airplane you are on stops. This is your choice. Want to avoid the problems we hear about daily, or strengthen your immune system now? Sort of pay now, or pay later - only later may be with a part of your life that you did not want to lose. Look over the diseases and symptoms. This could help you make your choice.

13. How do I know how much mercury is in my body?
This is tough. Cremation is about the only accurate method, but, it really does not matter. You will never get it all out, and that that is in storage is not bothering as much as that that is in circulation. The answer is to have mercury going out of the body just a few micrograms faster than it is coming in. We are all exposed to mercury daily in air, food and water. We excrete in sweat, urine and faeces. Maintaining the balance in favor of more excretion than intake will keep you feeling good, and keep your chemistry looking good. .

14. Why do I need supplements and why Nutrition Diagnostics supplements?
Most people have chemical imbalances as seen from blood and urine analysis. The best diet in the world will give them the same imbalances, just at a higher level. The real purpose of supplementation is to create the opposite imbalance from what the client has, so that the combination of extra supplementation for deficiencies and corrective supplementation to bring down high levels can create a good balance. Nutrition Diagnostics supplements were formulated by watching human chemistries versus dosages such that corrections are more predictable. With different routes of absorption for each mineral (thus the name, low dosages can bring about proper and predictable corrections. Overdoses are just as bothersome as under-doses. The old wives tale about taking large doses being OK, because the body just eliminates what it does not need, does not hold true when you continually monitor people taking supplements.

Consider vitamin D

15. Why is it important to choose this protocol when it comes to dental revision?
There are many mistakes which can be made in balancing body chemistry and removing dental fillings. Our mentor Huggins made many of these mistakes in the 1960's, and avoids those errors today. The current Protocol is a combination of using what works, and avoiding what harms. Remember, 63% of the people who just have fillings replaced randomly end up with symptoms or diseases that they did not have prior to filling removal. Try not to make the figure 64%. Become educated..

16. Are there any auxiliary therapies that I should follow?
Many auxiliary therapies can be helpful in regenerating the toxic injured body. Some of these are called "body disciplines". Acupressure has been especially helpful in people with neurological diseases. Acupuncture, massage, Feldenkrais, and reflexology have their places also. Each has something to offer but without a doubt staying with the designed eating plan and correct supplementation trumps them all. Intravenous Vitamin C is a major assistance post dental as well as during dental procedures. Again, each should be evaluated individually but not stray from your programme.

17. Are there any health issues that I have to be aware of before I have my dental revision?
Perhaps a better question would be are there any health issues you have that your doctor should know about. Yes, there are medications that people take that might alter the doctors decision as to which procedures to use and which to avoid. Be totally honest with your physician and dentist about any conditions that you may have.

18. Should I begin a nutritional or a detoxification program before I have my dental revision?
Detoxification is a good idea, if done properly. Which means, please do not overdo it with drugs that are too strong for your condition. To a certain extent, it is like drying off while you are standing in the shower. It may not hurt anything, but, if you eliminate an atom of mercury that will be replaced in less than a second, you have not gained much. It is more beneficial if designed into a total program.

19. Should I remove my root canals or have my amalgams removed if I have to choose between the two?
This is like saying, should I have the left or right wheel of my airplane on the runway when landing? You are begging for a crash, and will likely have your wish granted.
