The Perks Of Mercury Safe Dentistry



The human body is toxic to mercury. Mercury is commonly found in fillings, but many patients are unaware of it. Silver amalgam fillings placed by your dentist in your mouth contain mercury. In traditional dental procedures, dentists use silver amalgam fillings to treat decaying areas and approximately 50% of the mercury in those fillings is mercury. As a result of the heat, mercury vapor will be released. Consumption of warm foods and beverages can lead to heating.

In addition to providing comprehensive and holistic care, we look forward to educating new patients about the advantages of working with our team of professionals. Long-term oral health and wellness can be improved by our safe and effective dental services. If you would like to learn more, please visit the ADW Center at

Why Should You Choose A Mercury-Free Dentist And A Mercury-Safe Dentist?

Mercury Safe Dentist adheres to the following commitments, which are among the most significant advantages:

  • Mercury Amalgam/Silver Fillings are not placed by the dentist in this group;
  • In order to protect the patient from unnecessary and excessive exposure to mercury during filling removal, the member dentist will use Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Protocols. There are different removal protocols used by mercury-safe dentists, so always ask the dentist if you are unsure.
  • Patients can receive all treatments and services offered by a member dentist;
  • All treatments and therapies offered by the member dentist will be fully trained;
  • If requested, the dentist will provide patients with information regarding mercury amalgam/silver fillings, mercury detoxification, and oral hygiene.
  • Upon request, dental members will provide patients with information about the relationship between oral and overall health.
  • Integrity and honesty are pledged by the dentist.

Is Composite Resin Filling More Advantageous Than Silver Amalgam Fillings?

Unlike mercury-based fillings, composite resin fillings do not contain mercury. Natural teeth can be restored with the use of these materials. A seamless integration with the teeth is ensured by their coloring which mimics the enamel of natural teeth. Further, composite resin fillings don’t expand and contract as much as silver amalgam fillings do with temperature changes. Infections caused by bacteria are prevented from spreading to the inner portion of the teeth. Silver amalgam fillings are commonly associated with this problem. Those with common dental problems can consider composite resin fillings at our state-of-the-art facility as an affordable option for restoring their smiles.

Replacement Of Fillings – How Does It Work?

Patients can discuss their concerns with their dentist during their consultation appointment and initial evaluation. Following a successful replacement, silver amalgam fillings are eliminated in a safe and patient-safe manner without putting patients or professionals at risk. Following the strict protocols set forth by IAOMT – International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology will ensure the safety and well-being of your oral health. Silver amalgam fillings are removed and replaced according to standards established by this organization. The treatment room has an advanced filtration system as well as proper coverage for the patient and dentist. A composite resin filling is then placed on the tooth after mercury-laden fillings have been safely removed. There are no side effects associated with using composite resin in the mouth. A special light is used to harden it after it has been inserted into the cavity. In order to finish it properly, the dentist files and polishes it so that it appears like natural enamel.
