You had better get the root canal out and not get any more. What your dangerous dentist is wanting to do it this: The dentist will put a hole in your gum and then get to the root of the tooth and possibly put mercury in the root. This procedure is pronounced
a pee la lec' toe me.
It is very dangerous and people have been mercury poisoned from it. Dr. Hal Huggins has a book and video on root canals, how dangerous they are and how they should be removed properly. See his website at www.halhuggins.com
Also check out Dr. Mercola's website at www.mercola.com and do a search for root canals. He has a good interview that explains how dangerous root canals are.
I am receiving emails from people who are VERY SICK sick with root canals. I am part of the DAMS organization. (Dental Amalgam Mercury Syndrome). DAMS can send you an info packet on dental mercury fillings and root canals. 1-800-311-6265.
One lady that contacted me did not finish her root canal either by putting the crown on top, and it broke apart in her mouth. 20 days later she woke up with fibromyalgia so bad she could barely move. She is also mercury poisoned.
