Azusa, CA patients considering a mercury-free dental office can contact the team at Gentle Care Dentistry today!
Your oral health is important, and ensuring the procedures performed are safe and appropriate is key to a lifetime of beautiful smiles. Many dentists over the years have used a material called silver amalgam to fill areas of decay. However, it has been determined that the levels of mercury in this material are harmful to the human body. Since then, Dr. Brianne Luu of Gentle Care Dentistry has switched to safer materials to provide mercury-free fillings in her dental office. Azusa, CA, patients worried about their dentist providing these fillings are encouraged to call her office for a safer alternative.
What can be used instead?
Working with a mercury-safe dentist is the first step in ensuring better oral health and wellness. A composite resin material is used as an alternative to filling areas of decay. This material is:
Our practice can also provide mercury-safe removal of silver amalgam fillings and replace them with composite resin. We follow the strict recommendations of the IAOMT or the “International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. This organization places protocols that reduce mercury exposure to both patients and staff during the removal and replacement of silver amalgam fillings. This is because the mercury toxins are exposed during heating of the silver amalgam fillings, and these toxins are released into the air and exposing anyone in the room. We are excited to offer safe removal and replacement and encourage patients to ask about this service when they visit our practice.
At Gentle Care Dentistry, we care about your overall health and wellness, and encourage you to take the time to learn about the benefits of working with our team for healthier smiles!
