Why Remove Amalgam Fillings?
Amalgam fillings contain mercury, a toxic material that can cause unwanted side effects. Multiple studies have shown that people are sensitive to the materials in amalgam fillings, which is why we don’t offer them to our patients. Instead, we provide white fillings made of composite resin. Our mercury free dentists use the latest techniques to protect your smile.
Unlike other dentists, we use methods approved by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology to remove mercury fillings. During amalgam removal, we’re not only careful of the filling itself, but the mercury vapors and particles released during the procedure.
Amalgam Filling Removal Procedure
Our dentists use a rubber dam to isolate the tooth while using oxygen and air filtration to capture all traces of mercury. Without these precautions, mercury would be free to enter your airway, bloodstream, and the rest of your body. Mercury can also contaminate the environment.
