osman, yes, I believe the same, however I hope you understand the the actual tooth probably has to come out, not just the filling and amalgams. From the research my friend has done, and the dentist she saw, the only way to get rid of the infection from the root canals is from pulling the teeth, unfortunately. You can find a lot of info. on the net about this. Just Google root canals and Candida or root canals and Auto Immune diseases. I for one and switching dentists because my dentist says he doesn't believe in the connection, but to be honest with you, I think he's just afraid of being sued for using Amalgams and such. He should be afraid is he knowingly knows there is a connection. In Europe, it is against the law to use Amalgam fillings. Interesting, huh?
