I found a lot of helpful, albeit scary, information on the Health board/Dental. There is an entire loooong thread about it a few pages in. I have found two dentists somewhat nearby who practice mercury-free denstistry and who take many precautions. The general consensus (sp?) is NOT to remove them while BF, however, as mine is either cracked OR I have a new cavity underneathe causing nerve damage, the risk is just as great to leave it. It is either already leaking more mercury or, prolongues nerve exposure could lead to me needing a root canal, which would need it to come out anyway.
I am going to set up a consultation with either one or both of them in the next week. They are BUSY folks. This is in the Nova area, so if anyone needs their names, please let me know.
