S.M.A.R.T. Mercury Removal

S.M.A.R.T. Mercury Removal

More and more people consider mercury removal from their teeth, and for good reason. Mercury is one of the most toxic substances in the world and causes health hazards. The Mercury amalgam fillings are made up of 50% mercury, 35% silver, and 15% copper, nickel, tin, and other metals.

Mercury vapor is continuously emitted from dental fillings, accumulates in the body over time, and is harmful to the environment. After an amalgam filling is taken out of a patient’s mouth, it is treated as hazardous waste, but somehow, when it is in the patient’s mouth, it is not.


What is S.M.A.R.T. Mercury Removal?

Safe Dental Amalgam Removal, also known as Safe Mercury Removal or Safe Silver Filling Removal, is a procedure to remove toxic mercury-containing fillings from your mouth. Because mercury is toxic and dangerous, this process must be done by a S.M.A.R.T. certified Dentist using the proper techniques for safe amalgam removal to keep you in good care throughout the procedure

The S.M.A.R.T. protocol was developed to minimize exposure to mercury while we are drilling amalgam fillings and removing them. This protocol utilizes special equipment and techniques so that patients do not inhale the mercury, ensuring their safety.

The Safe Dental Amalgam Fillings Removal Protocol

The Safe Mercury Amalgam Fillings Removal Protocol is a set of guidelines that helps to minimize exposure to mercury during the removal process.

The protocol includes the following safety techniques:

  • A dental dam to prevent mercury vapors from being released into the air
  • Full body protection for both the patient and staff
  • The patient receives oxygen during the procedure
  • High-volume suction ensures that no nano-particles emitted from drilling are absorbed into the bloodstream
  • A Dental Air-Vac to suction vapor clouds
  • HEPA filters in every room and throughout the office

Mercury in Dental Fillings

Mercury is a toxic metal and harmful neurotoxin, which is why it is crucial to be aware of its risks if you have dental fillings. Mercury can enter your bloodstream, where it can cause serious health problems. Therefore, we highly suggest that patients have their mercury fillings removed as soon as possible.

The Dangers of Mercury Fillings

Mercury fillings release toxic vapors every time a person chews gum, drinks hot/cold beverages, and even eats. Vapors can increase if there is a crack or damage in the tooth, causing the harmful metal to leak and accumulate in the body over time. Inhaled or absorbed mercury vapors are hazardous for everyone but extremely dangerous to susceptible groups of people, such as children, pregnant women, and individuals with specific health conditions.

Unfortunately, mercury toxicity can be misdiagnosed as other conditions and is known to be linked to these serious health issues:

  • Neurological Conditions such as Anxiety, Depression, Nervousness, Panic Attacks
  • Insomnia, Irritability, Chronic Fatigue
  • Autoimmune Disorders, Thyroid Conditions
  • Cancer
  • Kidney and Liver damage
  • Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s,
  • Congenital disabilities

The Benefits of S.M.A.R.T. Mercury Removal

The safe dental amalgam removal protocol is the safest and most effective way to remove a mercury amalgam filling. This protocol minimizes exposure to mercury vapor, which can be harmful to your health. Many people choose to have their old silver fillings removed because they recognize the advantages of removing mercury from their bodies. There are many benefits to having silver fillings removed, including:
  • You will avoid additional exposure and contact with mercury. Because mercury vapors are generated over time, not removing them means continued exposure.
  • Peace of mind knowing that your mouth is free from hazardous materials.
  • Reduction in symptoms of mercury poisoning, like headaches, difficulty sleeping, and muscle weakness.
  • Composite fillings look more natural, so your fillings will blend in with your natural teeth, improving the appearance of your smile.

Safe and Non-Toxic Dental Fillings

A filling is a standard procedure, but selecting a suitable material is essential. Some materials are safe and effective, while others may contain toxins or harmful chemicals. If you are looking for a biocompatible material, consider choosing tooth-colored composite resin. They’re durable, natural-looking, and safe to use in patients’ mouths.
