What are the benefits of a mercury safe dentistry practice in Palm Beach Gardens?
Pure Dental Care of the Palm Beach Gardens area are holistic dentists who focus on the biocompatibility of everything they do within the smile. They believe in the oral systemic connection and how treatment of the mouth (or lack thereof) can affect the rest of the body as a whole. This is why our team provides mercury safe dentistry to avoid problems often associated with silver amalgam fillings.
Silver amalgam fillings have been used for several decades by dentists who were restoring areas of the smile affected by tooth decay. It is not unusual for patients to have silver amalgam fillings in their smile due to cavities that have occurred in the past. However, studies continue to show that the mercury used to fabricate these fillings can lead to mercury toxicity—and greatly affect the mind and body.
Instead, mercury safe dentistry provides patients with a way of maintaining their healthy smile—and body—by eliminating the use of silver amalgam fillings. There are many benefits to doing so, including maintaining a healthy body, using more aesthetic alternatives (such as composite resin bonding which matches the tooth structure), and better long-term treatment. When it comes to fillings, composite resin bonding also has other specific benefits to patients including the fact that it does not contract and expand with temperature changes the same way silver amalgam fillings do, allowing them to keep a better seal to keep bacteria out. Though composite resin fillings often cost a little more than silver amalgam fillings, they are longer-lasting, healthier, and much more reliable than their counterparts.
At our practice, not only do we avoid the placement of silver amalgam fillings, but upon request, we can provide safe mercury removal for those who are ready to make the switch to more holistic solutions. We follow the standards set forth by the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicity) in removing silver amalgam fillings to reduce exposure to mercury toxicity for patients, dentist, and staff.
