Safe Removal of Silver Mercury Fillings for a Mercury-free, Healthy Smile

Call Us Today

Although silver mercury fillings have been a common choice for decay or cavity treatment, many patients are discovering that these restorations aren’t the safest options to restore teeth. Silver mercury fillings for decay contain about 50% mercury, which can seep into your bloodstream when breathed into your lungs! Since many patients are aware of the health complications of mercury, many want to get rid of their metal fillings for safer alternatives.

Safe removal of silver mercury fillings

Not every dentist can remove silver mercury fillings safely. Mercury exposure is more pronounced during the removal process compared to leaving the fillings intact. Our dental team is well-trained and experienced in replacing silver mercury fillings without risking your safety. We follow the SMART protocol from the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology) to achieve the safest outcome.

Following are the safety steps involved in removing silver mercury fillings:

  • Using protective eyewear and covering your face and nose to minimize mercury exposure
  • Placing a rubber dam to protect your mouth
  • Cutting the metals used into chunks instead of drilling the entire filling
  • Breathing oxygen through a nose mask to avoid breathing mercury vapors through the mouth
  • Cooling the filling during removal to minimize vaporization
  • Rinsing your mouth with ozone water and using activated charcoal to remove traces of mercury
  • Dental office air purification to eliminate mercury vapors in the air
  • Safe disposal of the removed silver mercury fillings
