Dental Problems and CFS
The main problems arise from dental amalgam fillings which leak toxic metals into the body resulting in a low grade poisoning. See the section on Toxic Problems: pollution and poisonings (located down the left hand side bar menu) and in particular:
- Mercury - Toxicity of Dental Amalgam - Why you should have your dental amalgams removed
- Nickel - toxicity and detoxing
- Chemical poisons and toxins.
For some people anaesthetics are a problem:
Sensitivity to dental materials can be tested for by Lymphocyte sensitivity to metals and chemicals.
There is considerable discussion about root canal fillings and cavitation as a cause of CFS. I can only judge by what I see clinically and I have not been that impressed by the results of such treatments. My guess is that this is another facet of poor immunity. See Chronic infections in CFS.
