Do I have to have my dental fillings (amalgams) removed before I start using METAL-FREE?

One should have their dental amalgams removed prior to using METAL-FREE. METAL-FREE is a potent dietary spray supplement and could leach metal from those amalgams and pull it into the body. METAL-FREE works best when there are no metals present in one's mouth. This also includes crowns such as gold, porcelain or aluminum. The key here is to have all oral metals removed according to the dictates of one's supervising practitioner. Nasal administration of METAL-FREE can be used to bypass the oral route in such cases.

Are Alternative Dental Fillings, Such As Composite Material, More Expensive Than Silver Fillings?

Yes. The difference in cost comes from the dentists’ charges for services rendered. The cost for material of one silver filling is less than one dollar. Similarly, the cost for material of one composite (white) filling is less than one dollar.

Dentists typically charge patients more for white, composite filling because it takes a little bit more skill and a little bit more time as compared to amalgam.
