I do hope that sore throat goes away soon to relieve you of the worry and irritation. I'm still taking the alcohol/iodine daily as I get a bigger kick out of it than even Magnascent. I take SSKI in the morning with my salt water then 2 droppers of the alcohol/iodine spaced into the day. So far no bad effects, but remember it is a 'man's iodine'. LOL
I'm getting one side of fillings removed on the 11th of November, replaced with white composite and the other side done a month later. I only have just a few small one surface fillings. I'm not going to do all the extreme measures or find a special dentist. I don't like the mercury in my mouth but mainly I'm doing it because I want my teeth to look pretty since I've suffered through adult braces.
