Acrylic toxicity

This reader is keen to have all of the amalgam removed from her mouth, but she is highly allergic to dental acrylic, the only substance her dentist says can be used as a replacement. Apparently, the acrylic attacks her liver and other organs. Does anyone know of an alternative substance that can be used to replace dental amalgam, she asks? Or can readers offer any suggestions to deal with acrylic toxicity?

Gold / Porcelain

A dentist reports that a good substitute for amalgam is gold - it's long lasting and has been used for many years. However, another dentist points out that gold is expensive and is not always aesthetically pleasing. "Nowadays we have porcelain replacements as an alternative," he says. "This can take the form of crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays." Nevertheless, the downside of porcelain is that the technology is fairly new - so its longevity is not proven. Still, this dentist has been using porcelain for nearly eight years and recommends it highly.

NAET

On the other hand, if you're keen to get rid of the acrylic sensitivity for good, you could try Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques, also known as NAET. According to the website (www.naet.com), NAET is a "non-invasive, drug free, natural solution to eliminate allergies of all types and intensities using a blend of selective energy balancing, testing and treatment procedures from acupuncture/acupressure, allopathy, chiropractic, nutritional, and kinesiological disciplines of medicine." It's certainly worth a look, says one reader.
