Safe removal of poisonous amalgam fillings
Mercury is the most toxic metal on the planet and can have adverse effects on your health. It has been proven to leak out of old amalgam fillings and accumulate inside your body through daily ingestion.
Mercury and other chemicals, through complex chemical and physical interactions, cause or aggravate some brain and heart disorders, such as autism, Alzheimer's disease and some heart conditions, if present in high enough concentrations.
Most teeth are not toxic and most people with amalgam fillings suffer no ill effects. Fortunately the poison is in the dose and not in the simple presence of mercury. The amount of mercury in a filling is so small that in reality it has no effect on the human system at all. Nonetheless, we recommend not adding to the mercury already in your mouth.
Amalgam fillings also cause galvanic reactions, which are the tingle of slight shock you get when your filling touches another metal object, i.e. tin foil. There is a difference in the electrical potential between various metals and sometimes when they are in contact this will result in a mild electric "shock" which is harmless.
Our practice is "mercury free" and offers METAL-FREE and tooth coloured restoration. During the restoration process we replace your old amalgam fillings with new porcelain onlays / inlays, crowns or composites where implicated.
We also remove the amalgam fillings by the international standards to minimize the amount of mercury release to your body.
