Benefits of visiting an amalgam free dentist in the West Palm Beach community

Many patients visit our practice because they are seeking an amalgam free dentist in the West Palm Beach area. Silver amalgam fillings have been under scrutiny as being a poison put into the mouth that can negatively impact not only the smile but the entire body. A biological or “holistic” dental practice focuses on patients as a “whole” and will never place anything in the smile that doesn’t resonate positivity with the rest of the body. This includes the placement of silver amalgam fillings, which are fabricated from approximately 50% mercury. Mercury can release vapors when heated that can carry through the bloodstream and result in many medical and neurological conditions that can only be treated with the removal of the fillings.
At our practice, instead of placing silver amalgam fillings when dealing with tooth decay, we prefer the placement of composite resin bonding. Composite resin bonding is a material that looks like natural enamel allowing it to blend seamlessly into the remaining structure of the tooth. This is a great way to ensure tooth decay is treated in a discreet manner.
While silver amalgam fillings have been used for decades, it si just now coming to the attention of many dentists that the mercury used to fabricate them can be hazardous. When patients come to our facility requesting the removal and replacement of their silver amalgam fillings, we follow the strict protocols developed by the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology).
Drs. Pure Dental Care and Elizabeth Keith recommend patients strongly consider the benefits of an amalgam free dentist in the West Palm Beach area.
