Customer Question
I am going through fertility...
I am going through fertility treatment and just now read about the dangers of amalgam fillings when my filling just popped out - I had it fixed immediately, but wonder whether I may have done any damage to my growing follicles or if I should have my other 3 fillings removed.

I'm happy that you have asked me to assist you with your child and hope that you can benefit from my many years of helping parents like you. The amount of mercury in older fillings is negligible and therefore I don't know of any recommendation that fillings be replaced, other than when they are cracked or damaged. Cold water fish (tuna, salmon, etc) contain far more mercury and thus should be avoided but I would not be worried about your fillings.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
