Mercury Filling Removal

Approximately 50% of the old silver fillings were composed of mercury which is toxic to the body. 

We are a mercury-free dental office and Dr. McCormick has specialized training which allows us to offer our patients a way to safely remove and dispose of their mercury fillings. Stories abound about patients having adverse reactions or getting sick following removal of amalgam fillings.

Mercury free dentists of the world have been acutely aware of the potential for excess exposure to mercury when removing amalgam fillings and have devised a number of strategies for reducing the amount of mercury exposure to both patients and dental staff during amalgam removal.

To protect our patients during filling removals we utilize the following procedures:

  • We drape our patients to prevent skin exposure to particulates.
  • Patients breathe in oxygen through a mask over their nose.
  • Barriers are used to prevent the patient from swallowing any particles.
  • High-speed suction is used to vacuum up the vapor. 

To protect our team we also wear protective breathing gear to prevent inhalation of mercury. 

Do you need mercury fillings removed?  Let us safely remove those fillings with the most up to date procedures.
