Abstract: Dental amalgam restorations were introduced to North America in the 1830s. Thus, dentist and patient should have been encouraged to avoid risk factors associated with unnecessary exposure to mercury during/after removal amalgam fillings. Mercury exposure from amalgam fillings is dramatically increased by chewing, eating, brushing, and drinking hot liquids. To avoid this, the use of safe protocols for dental filling removal together with (the synergic) use of nasal filters (active carbon) and nutritional supplements (i. e Curcuma longa, Clorella, Desmodium. ) would enhance endogenous detoxification capacities against heavy metals in patients during/after removal of dental amalgam. Other factors, as the presence of implants, electromagnetic fields and orthodontic treatments can contribute to mercury and other heavy metal release. Finally, the safe procedures or alternatives even if certainly some cause-effect relationships have yet to be properly established.
