Why you should consider the safe removal and replacement of Silver Mercury Fillings
Many dentists used a material known as silver amalgam to fill teeth affected by decay, which left a noticeable dark color on the tooth. Over time, other materials were considered a lot safer and provided a less noticeable repair to an affected tooth. However, some dentists continue to use silver amalgam fillings, fully knowing how dangerous they can be to the body.
Dr. Beata Carlson and Associates of Natural Dentistry in Clearwater, Florida, is a holistic dentist who knows just how unsafe silver amalgam fillings can be. Dr. Carlson and her Associates encourage patients in the area to consider the safe removal of these fillings due to their high levels of mercury content that can contribute to mercury toxicity.
Why holistic dentists avoid the placement of silver amalgam fillings
Silver amalgam fillings used to be the standard way of restoring teeth affected by cavities. Over the years, studies have shown the dangers of this type of restorative treatment, yet many dentists continue to use silver amalgam. Instead, patients should consider working with a holistic dentist such as Dr. Beata Carlson and Associates to find out more about replacing these fillings safely and effectively with biocompatible composite resin alternatives while enjoying a more aesthetic appearance to the teeth.
In addition to having these fillings removed, Dr. Carlson and Associates encourage patients to have this done by a holistic dentist who follows the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology) to do so safely.
Mercury fillings removed in a traditional dental office can leave the patient, dentist, and staff exposed to mercury toxins if not performed correctly. Many patients love their new smiles after replacing these fillings with tooth-colored alternatives.
