Are your old fillings loose or worn down? Even though a well-bonded filling can last up to several years, over time they may need to be replaced to prevent cavities from reoccurring. Since traditional fillings are most often made of amalgam (silver containing mercury), it may be time to have them taken out by a dentist experienced in mercury filling removal.
What is the Purpose of Mercury Filling Removal?
The mercury found in amalgam fillings can be toxic and may potentially cause further health issues, especially if a damaged filling begins to leak. With our holistic alternative practices in dentistry, we want to ensure you are healthy in every sense of the word—meaning not just in your oral health.
If you are going to have your amalgam fillings taken out due to damage or wear, it’s important that the procedure is done by a professional dentist. This is because removing amalgam may release harmful mercury-infused vapors if done incorrectly.
We also offer composite-resin fillings, which are mercury-free, virtually invisible, and biocompatible to protect your total wellbeing.
