Safe Replacement of Mercury Amalgams by an Experienced Dentist
Our mercury free dental practice uses mercury-free dental materials that are compatible to your body. If your physician recommends removal, or you have decided that your amalgams should be removed, we use state-of-the-art equipment and the safest protocol to protect you, the dentist, and the environment.
SAFE replacement of mercury amalgams, or fillings, and other toxic metals from your mouth can reduce both the chronic exposure to mercury vapor, as well as the electrical currents that are created by the contact of different metals in fillings and crowns.
Although controversial, these currents are potentially harmful because they block the meridians and bio-energetic fields of your body. In order to ensure that your health is not compromised, an integrated approach which includes nutritional counseling, special air filters, a special oxygenated water system, negative ion generators, oxygen masks and rubber dams is used for mercury removal and other toxic metals.
Mercury free and Mercury safe Protocols
As the District of Columbia Board of Dentistry wants you to know, “the National Institutes of Health has determined that there are no verifiable systemic health benefits resulting from the removal of mercury amalgam restorations, and the removal of sound or serviceable mercury amalgam restorations may significantly affect the integrity of the tooth.”
