Dangers of Silver Mercury Fillings Clearwater FL

Call Us Today

Clearwater, FL holistic dental practice follows a safe protocol to remove silver mercury fillings to reduce the danger they might have on your health.

As a holistic dental practice, Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry understands that the mouth and teeth are the gateway to health. This principle is acknowledged in every service and technique that Dr. Beata Carlson and Associates use with every patient at every appointment every day. Accordingly, Dr. Beata Carlson and Associates emphasize close partnerships with patients to educate them about conventional dental materials such as silver mercury fillings and other dental treatments that pose threats to patient’s health, as well as to the health of their dental staff, and the environment.

Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry is a mercury-free office!

A healthy mouth is free of dental materials that are toxic. Silver mercury fillings are colored amalgam fillings made from an “amalgamation” of metals such as: tin, copper, silver and of course mercury.

Mercury is the primary metal used to make “silver” fillings. In fact, the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (of which our doctors are members) estimates that amalgam contains 43 to 54 percent of mercury.

It has been scientifically and clinically proven that there are no safe levels of mercury. Silver mercury fillingsare constantly emitting toxic vapors, this happens every time you chew. Mercury accumulates in the body, due to the overload produced over time, the body can’t effectively remove mercury and it can potentially lead to other health problems.

The IAOMT lists a dizzying array of symptoms and “adverse health effects” that are related to inhalation of elemental mercury vapors from silver mercury fillings. The following are some of the 250-plus specific symptoms associated with mercury exposure from silver mercury fillings:

  • Poor immune function
  • Memory problems and cognitive impairment
  • Respiratory or breathing problems
  • Kidney dysfunction
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Headaches

Did you know that without proper safeguards in place, the act of drilling out silver mercury fillings frees mercury vapors and fine particles into the air?  When this happens, the mercury vapor and particles are absorbed by patient’s and dental staff skin.

This is why Dr. Beata Carlson and Associates take their commitment to biocompatible and holistic dentistry to the next level; they are not only “mercury-free” office, but the team has advanced training in safely removing silver mercury fillings.

Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry follow the “Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique” (SMART) protocol set forth by the IAOMT. They have invested in special equipment and other precautions to ensure your safety during treatment, including a super-strong dry suction to eliminate harmful mercury vapors.

As a “mercury-free” office, Dr. Beata Carlson and Associates only place fillings that are made from biocompatible (tissue-friendly) materials. These fillings are not only safe, but they are also durable and look like real teeth – no ugly “silver” color!

Our team looks forward to discussing their healthy and holistic approach to silver mercury fillings removal and filling placement with you.
