This video by the dentist, naturopath and author, Dr Alison Adams, gives a brief introduction to the new paradigm of what she call Mouth-Body Medicine which regards the mouth as part of the whole body and dental diseases as being a local manifestation of an underlying systemic problem. Dental treatments are also acknowledged to have profound effects on the health and well-being of the individual via a number of different biological and chemical pathways including via the energy meridian system.

DR HESHAM EL-ESSAWY
http://www.el-essawy.com/ See below for information on mercury toxicity from amalgam fillings.
Dr El-Essawy worked in general practice NHS (National Health Service) Dentistry before starting his full time private dental practice in Harley Street, London since 1975 till the present time.
Having suffered severe mercury toxicity that brought him very near to death, he started investigating the question of mercury on a much greater scale. Dr El-Essawy started from where the greatly respected previous pioneers had finished, and through carefully examining every step, and through basically learning from his patient's experiences and responses he has developed his techniques and protocols that produce near perfect results in all of his mercury toxic patients almost immediately after the amalgam removal.
Dr El-Essawy offers his patients a money back guarantee if they do not improve significantly, (it is only fair to do so), but no one has applied so far!
Besides his work as a dental surgeon with a deeply felt responsibility and a dedicated mission to help mercury toxic patients, Dr El-Essawy is the founder and the chairman of the Islamic Society for the Promotion of Religious Tolerance . He is a writer and broadcaster who contributed widely in the British Media, and is currently working on a translation and interpretation of the Qur'an.
Considering that many substances used in dentistry today carry a heavy toxicological burden on patients, we believe that testing a material before using it for a particular patient is the correct approach for caring for our patients.
Our patient is always the centre of our world, and everything we do revolves around serving him.
We never take control away from our patients. We only undertake what they willingly entrust us with.
We consider a tooth to be a miraculous work of art, and we consider ourselves privileged to have the opportunity to work with it.
We treat teeth and oral tissues with the utmost of care and respect, in the hope of doing justice to the miracles that are teeth and oral tissues.
Restoration of normality or near normality is what we aim for.
We use only the best possible materials, equipment, and techniques.
We use powerful air filters and negative air ionizers to ensure that the patient inhales only clean air.
We use reverse osmosis water filter, to ensure that the water we use for our patient is pure water.
The practice is designed to be comforting to the eye and the soul (see office tour link).
We ensure that our patient always stay in control of his experience.
We play the patient's more favoured music during the treatment as it helps to relax the patient.
We endeavour and usually succeed in treating the patient's dental fear complex and other related phobias.
Our work atmosphere is nearly always a happy and joyous one. We love our dentistry, we love our patients and we are extremely happy with our patient’s friendship.
We believe that, if the patient does not enjoy his dental visit, then we must have been doing something wrong somewhere.
This philosophy stems from Dr El-Essawy's personal experience over fifty years ago as a 6 year old child, visiting a dentist for the first time. The dental phobia that resulted made him determined to become a dentist in order to help set a standard for a better dentistry, and to see dentistry through the eyes of the phobic patient.
Most of our patients start being phobic, and they end up enjoying the experience. That, we find, is a highly rewarding aspect of our practice
Typically, the patients referred to us for the safe removal of amalgam and mercury decontamination have suffered from a group of troubling signs and symptoms including:
- Excessive tiredness and lack of energy
- Mood swings
- Sleep disturbances and waking up tired
- Foggy brain
- Digestive and bowel problems
- Food intolerance
- Frequent colds, sore throats, and generally depressed immunity
- Excessive Headaches or migraine
- Mouth ulcers
- Chronic sinusitis
- Skin, nail and hair problems
- Generally feeling unwell
Typically, they would have visited their general medical practitioners, who would have referred them to various hospitals, that would have run an array of tests and investigations, then pronounced their invariable verdict; that there is nothing wrong with these patients. The patients then come to us, we decontaminate them from mercury and amalgam, and the patients invariably, and immediately, improve. It takes 6-12 months for a complete cure.
The best mercury detox is the careful and total removal of amalgam and mercury from the tooth without letting anything of it no matter how small get into the patient or stay behind in the tooth.
To do that, we must isolate the teeth from the patient's throat and to do that we must sedate the patient. While under conscious sedation we also put an oxygen line in the patient's nose and cover his or her nose and eyes with a gold mask for additional safety.
We remove the amalgam using instruments and a particular technique. After totally removing the amalgam we usually find that the tooth has become full of mercury vapour which hides in the dentinal tubules and the like. It is absolutely vital that we remove all that mercury vapour or else the patient will either get worse or fail to improve significantly (see the Hattersley video case report link).
To remove the huge amount of mercury vapour produced by the process of amalgam removal from the cavities, we use an herbal detox that we have found to be the best available for that purpose (we tried everything).
If our mercury vapour analyser is out of order for any reason, we do not attempt to remove amalgam, as we are absolutely sure that it is dangerous to do so without the help of the mercury vapour analyser (see 'The Story of Amalgam').
Some of the worst cases we have seen were patients who had amalgam removed without sufficient care of the points mentioned above. You must remember that, unlike amalgam, mercury vapour is invisible. Only when each cavity reads zero mercury do we proceed to put a temporary filling in that tooth.
Apart from the safe removal of Amalgam and mercury detoxification we offer, with the exception of orthodontics (braces to correct malocclusion); we offer an elaborate range of high level dental services and procedures that patients find pleasing. Our aim is always the restoration of normality.
Our services also include:
