Are old amalgam/mercury fillings toxic?
OK, if you need to do more research or want to find out more about it please do so, but if you are ready to replace those old, dark, mercury filled spots on your molars in a way that is safe for you as a patient, for the dental staff and for the environment please give us a call. We use special suction tips that cover your tooth and attract particles so they don't end up in your mouth. You will wear a mask and an Oxygen supply so you don't inhale those particles either (and so are the Doctor and the Assistants). They use special grade filters masks that keep out the mercury particles. Also, there is special filter vacuum close to the working area, so no toxic particles are released in the office, that one is on all the time during your visit. After the old filling removal and tooth treatment you receive a tooth-colored filling that is barely visible and above all non-toxic, perfect for your new brighter, beautiful smile!
