Testimonial: Case of dental decay below amalgam

This post is made at the request of a sufferer with uncontrollable halitosis for 40 years. He would like to share this with the whole MEBO international community.

A long-time member of our community has been struggling for 40 years with uncontrollable halitosis. Even though he was able to reduce his odor symptoms with healthy eating, avoiding junk food and processed foods, foods with added hormones and antibiotics, reduced red meat, etc., he found that his halitosis was persistent. There was nothing he could do to completely eliminate it. His frequent visits a year to his dentist for cleanings still didn't resolve the problem.

Out of sheer desperation, he asked his dentist to please remove the amalgam in his teeth, one at a time. After much discussion, his dentist consented. After removing the first one, she found that he had dental decay below the amalgam. It was very odorous. She cleaned it and treated it with antibiotics. Afterwards, she replaced the metal filling with non-amalgam filling. His halitosis immediately went away, after 40 years, and has never returned. The only positive about his 40 years experience is that he has learned to eat healthy and he enjoys his diet and health.

According to the American Dental Association article, "When a filling needs to be replaced"

[an old filling] intended to replace tooth structure lost to decay. Dental fillings may last many years; however, eventually all fillings need to be replaced. Constant assault from eating and drinking, or stress from clenching or grinding, eventually may cause a dental filling to fail. Bacteria cause tooth decay.

Perhaps haltosis sufferers should consult with their dentist the pros and cons of filling replacements, even when the tooth and gums appear to be healthy. This was the case of the sufferer who is sharing his story with us, and there was decay under his amalgam.
