Thank you very much for your quick answer – it’s really great that you provide online information and help.
I already saw a different dentist this morning. He said that the work looks good upon initial inspection. However, he said he wouldn’t have used amalgam either and that a different approach could have been chosen.
The new doctor said that I could basically leave the amalgam in my mouth since it’s still the #1 in the world and that I should simply have my tooth polished and wait a while to see how I like it. Apart from that, he suggested visiting my dentist once more (or the “new one”). I thought that everything I heard in the consultation sounded pretty good.
So I went for a (at my dentist’s practice), and I raised the issue with my dentist (i.e., about the possibility of removing the and what other alternatives there may be).
He told me that of course, I could take it out after a while, but that the walls of the tooth were affected so severely that they are now very thin. Furthermore, the hole was very deep and he could only offer a crown as an alternative.
So here’s my question: How do I get rid of this thing in the fastest way?! I really feel uncomfortable with it and I have the feeling that my body is not happy with it (I could hardly sleep last night because of nausea and headache).
Thank you very much in advance
P.S.: I am 23 and simply have no experience with this because of the fact that these are my first cavities.
