I am 32 years old and have 4 mercury fillings.  I am still breastfeeding my 26 month old once a day and we are hoping to conceive this fall.  I am going to the dentist next week and I am looking for information about the removal of fillings.  I would love to hear your thoughts!

I decided to wait/not do it at all for a couple of reasons.  One, removing them exposes your body even more and the mercury can go directly into your system. I plan on TTC in a few months.  You are exposed to more mercury by eating tuna fish than from these fillings.  I have two small ones and unless something goes wrong, I will leave them. You can detox from mercury by eating cilantro among other things but I havent even done that.

I would do the same as you.  I had a mercury filling that needed to be removed while I was breastfeeding and I wouldn't have touched it otherwise.

I suggest not to removed unless it is cracked or have some holes already.


Living is great but being a MOM is even better
