      28 and I have a few. One caused me issues for years but I was scared to get it removed because that can be worse than just leaving them alone. It finally cracked and part of it fell out and I had no choice but to remove the tooth. Thankfully I didn’t have a bad time with it so now I’m planning on getting them all out soon!

          Many choose to remove the tooth over removing the filling because filling removal disrupts the mercury, causing us to inhale vapor and ingest particles. If pregnant or nursing, or within a timeframe of which either may occur, it is riskier to disrupt the mercury than just remove the tooth.

            I feel like if I removed the tooth instead of just the filling half my teeth would be gone 😅😂 (health issues resulting in many fillings). So that’s not really an option

      It is an undertaking. I have them myself and keep deliberating over which path I want to take, having to have eight of them removed. I will do it, but I am unsure if I want to wait until I am done having children or not.

    Me and my husband had ours removed. Make sure you go to someone who knows what they’re doing. Ours had some special vacuum and fan to make sure it was removed completely and in a safe manner. I have had some jaw soreness since around when it was removed but also around same time I got a new pillow and bed so who knows. Might try TRS to see if that helps but could be any number of things.
