Video Demonstrating Safe Removal of Amalgam Fillings
People have compared the benefits of silver colored amalgam to white composites. Safety when it comes to removal of dental materials is not a new thing in the holistic dental office. The goal is to eliminate:
- galvanic/electronic reactions
- metal allergies and sensitivities
Meet Dr. Gary Adams
Amalgam fillings contain more than 50% mercury and are silver in color. Metal filling removal should be done in a safe manner for the benefit of the patient and the dental office team. Finding a professional who is good at removing amalgam fillings can be difficult. The IAOMT safe mercury amalgam removal technique involves the use of a latex-free rubber dam, powerful suction, mercury gas filtration, water irrigation and supplementary oxygen gas. Like riding a bike, not only can removing mercury fillings be risky business, but it is an acquired skill that requires practice and experience.
