Mercury Safe Filling Removal That Ensure Your Protection
Our team always uses protective clothing when removing mercury fillings but we go further by providing special tools like rubber dams and vacuums that capture harmful particles and vapors in the air.
For extra protection against dangerous vapors, patients receive clean oxygen too.
To reduce mercury release during filing removal, cool water is utilized as well as cutting it into chunks before drilling. The whole area is then rinsed with chlorella or charcoal slurry to remove any residue – all for your health and safety!
The Dangers of Mercury Filling Removal
Silver fillings may look silver in color, but they are actually composed of 50% mercury. This is a dangerous metal that can cause permanent neurological damage and harm your brain and nervous system.
The typical approach to mercury amalgam filling removal can cause you and the dental cause both patients and the dental team to inhale or ingest large amounts of mercury particles or mercury gas – which is why we employ special protocols to greatly reduce exposure and ensure nobody’s safety is ever compromised.
The Risk of Leaving Mercury Amalgam Fillings In Your Teeth
Mercury amalgam fillings don’t bond to the tooth, leading to leakage and bacterial seepage over time. This may cause problems beneath the fillings such as decay.
At Total Care Dental, we use fillings that look just like your natural teeth and chemically bond to the tooth structure to guard against decay.
We remove the old mercury amalgam fillings as safely as possible, and replace the fillings with natural-looking, healthier alternatives!
