Safe Mercury Removal for Improved Wellness

Are Amalgam Fillings Hurting Your Health?

Amalgam fillings are a popular, inexpensive option for tooth decay, but did you know that they contain 50% mercury? Silver amalgam fillings have several ingredients, including tin, copper, and zinc; mercury makes up roughly half of the mixture. Mercury can leach out of your fillings and into your bloodstream, creating a host of symptoms. San Dieguito Dental Group performs safe mercury removal to improve overall wellness.

Symptoms of Mercury Toxicity

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Lack of coordination
  • Higher incidence of autoimmune disorders
  • Changes in personality, such as increased irritability and anxiousness

  • How Safe Mercury Removal Can Help You

    Safe Mercury Removal to Protect Overall Wellness

    As we are committed to holistic dentistry, San Dieguito Dental Group recommends removing amalgam fillings in favor of non-metal, resin or composite fillings. Mercury fillings affect how you feel and they impact how you look. The silver amalgam fillings cast a gray shadow on your teeth and are visible when you laugh or talk. Composite fillings will blend in with your tooth structure for a seamless, beautiful smile.

    Safeguarding Your Health for Safe Mercury Removal

    Cutting into the mercury fillings can create smaller particles which could be ingested and therefore enter the bloodstream. Cutting the fillings can also release a vapor that can be absorbed by the body when breathed in. Safe mercury removal is critical as mercury may be breathed in or ingested during the process if actions are not taken to limit your exposure during removal of amalgam fillings.
    San Dieguito Dental Group is skilled in safe mercury removal and has protocols in place to ensure your health during the entire procedure. You can trust our holistic dentists to properly remove your amalgam fillings.
