Amalgam Removal

Safe Amalgam Removal in San Diego

Mercury is a potent neurotoxin that can be absorbed through the skin or when ingested in saliva. The simple acts of chewing, grinding, or brushing can heat amalgam fillings, causing them to release mercury vapor which is then inhaled. Unfortunately, the human body lacks an efficient system to detoxify mercury, leading to its bioaccumulation over time. This build-up can result in a myriad of health effects ranging from digestive and neurological issues to joint problems and emotional disorders.

Mercury-Free and Mercury Safe Dentistry:

It's crucial to understand the difference between mercury-free and mercury-safe dentistry:

Mercury-free means the dentist doesn't use amalgam or other mercury-containing products in new restorations.

Mercury-safe entails the dentist being trained in and following a strict protocol to prevent mercury exposure and environmental pollution when removing amalgam.

Choosing a Mercury-Safe Dentist:

Always choose a dentist like Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry) who understands the SMART process for safe amalgalm removal. At our Dental Office, we not only safeguard against inhaling mercury vapors but also commit to using only biocompatible, mercury-free materials. These include BPA-free ceramic materials that are durable, natural-looking, and, most importantly, safe.

Is it Important to You to have Amalgam Fillings Replaced?

Have you ever reflected on the potential impact of amalgam fillings on your dental health?

While aesthetics once drove many of my patients to replace silver fillings, there's a growing concern about the possible effects of mercury toxicity and its suspected links to conditions like autoimmune diseases. With the shift towards composite fillings, not only is there the benefit of a more attractive appearance, but also the avoidance of these health concerns. Is the replacement of amalgam fillings a priority for you?

It's crucial to approach this topic with care. Sadly, some dentists exploit fears around amalgam fillings for profit, but I pride myself on being different and always placing patient welfare first. This is why I encourage my patients to replace the amalgam fillings once there is decay.
