Dear Dr. Ward Dean,

do you know if it’s safe to do oral chelation with DMSA, when still having a titanium implant in the brain*?

Kind regards,
Susannah

Hello, Susannah, 

I wish I could give you a definitive answer.  I’ve never known of anyone to have any problems with chelation with medical implants, including mercury dental fillings.  I believe it is probably safe to undergo DMSA chelation therapy with a titanium implant–but that is strictly an educated guess.
