Dr. Azadeh (Amy) Khajavi leverages extensive experience in the dental field to deliver cosmetic and implant dentistry services through her practice in San Diego. In her practice, Dr. Azadeh Khajavi also focuses on holistic dentistry and removal of amalgam (silver mercury) fillings.
According to an article published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health, an integrative treatment approach is necessary to ensure the safe and effective removal of amalgam, which can result in a number of benefits for patients. The article explains that a holistic approach to amalgam removal should combine cutting-edge dental practices, a detoxification and diet plan lasting several months, and regular testing to examine progress. According to the article, patients should continue working with a physician to further flush stored mercury from their body after the amalgam removal procedure.
The article’s author states that patients have reported a number of health improvements after amalgam removal and detoxification, including more energy, better concentration, and the elimination of metallic tastes in the mouth. In a Norwegian study conducted in 2011, researchers also found that amalgam removal significantly decreased general health and intraoral complaints among the participants in the study’s treatment group.
