Mammo2Sammo--don't feel bad about it. When our kids have extra challenges beyond the norm, it's that much more likely they'll have dental issues, and that much harder to heal them. Hello, deranged mineral transport, it makes the hurdle to healing cavities a lot higher IMO. I've felt lucky, flat-out lucky, that my kids haven't had cavities yet. They've certainly got the vitamin and mineral deficiencies to justify it, so I think there are some less-tangible factors than just straight nutrition. I do supplement a ton of stuff, a broad-spectrum mineral plus CLO plus a separate K2 supp, but I don't know if any would fit with your allergens. So if you try the HealOzone approach, I can give you a list if you're interested. But even with that, I don't think any of this is guaranteed, I really _do_ feel lucky.
That said... I was okay with the BPA-containing composites, I think I have Herculite in my mouth. Maybe I'm ignorant on this topic, I haven't looked into it extensively, but for me, needing my amalgams out, it was a huge improvement. There are BPA-free composites, I'm not sure how they stand up in terms of strength/durability and how much dentist skill is involved (some dentists just don't know how to do composites well, but I'm not sure if some types of composites are trickier than others). I hear porcelain is quite non-reactive, but also quite expensive.
Seriously, you're working really hard for you kids. Try not to let the guilt set in. You're working the problem, solving things and helping your kids as best you can. We can't expect more of ourselves.
