Recent studies have linked amalgam mercury fillings to various health conditions and diseases. Toxic mercury vapors are absorbed into the blood and can adversely affect the lungs, kidneys, stomach, and immune system. Today, many people opt to reduce their risk by removing mercury fillings and replacing them with more biocompatible metal free material.
Rite Dentist is a holistic practice that only uses biocompatible products on our patients. We recommend replacing amalgam with composite fillings, a safe alternative. As a top holistic dentist in Valley Village, Dr. Babrood can safely remove an amalgam filling and replace it with biocompatible materials using SMART technique
The Amalgam Removal Process
When traditional dentists perform a mercury filling removal, they often use the “drill and fill” method. They drill out the old filling and replace it with a new one. Unfortunately, this method produces large amounts of toxic mercury vapors, likely harmful to the body.
To prevent this, we use SMART, or Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique, which is a safe mercury removal process. Following current safety guidelines, patients are covered with a disposable cloth to ensure better isolation. A breathing oxygen mask will be placed on your nose also to filter out mercury vapors and supplies our patients with clean air during mercury removal. Our dentist places a rubber dam between the teeth and your mouth to prevent the swallowing of mercury particles.
Furthermore, two different speed suctions as well as a large hospital grade air filtration system will be supplied during treatment to eliminate mercury fragments and direct vapors toward an air filter. It takes longer than the “drill and fill” method, but it’s well worth the time when you consider the health risks that mercury fillings present.
Replacing Amalgam Fillings
Rite Dentist replaces the mercury fillings with BPA free, non-toxic biocompatible restorations such as fillings or crowns. These restorations blend in seamlessly with the color of your tooth and fortify it against further damage.
The Benefits of Zirconia, Porcelain and Non-Toxic Composite Fillings
- Long-Lasting: Biocompatible fillings are solid and long-lasting. Once our fillings are bonded to the teeth, they can last up to several years, while amalgam fillings are toxic and cause fracture and cracks on the teeth.
- Appearance: While amalgam fillings are silver in color, our fillings are a translucent white and blend seamlessly with the color of your tooth.
- Durability: Since amalgam fillings are metal, they tend to expand and contract with temperature changes, putting strain on the tooth. This occurs when eating anything hot or cold and can lead to tooth fractures and decay.
