Mercury Free Dentistry
Ultimate Smile Design is Proud to be a Mercury-Free Dental Practice
There is ample evidence that mercury is a potent neurotoxin. Simply put, it is toxic to our nervous system. Mercury is an element of dental amalgam or what is commonly called a "silver filling." While there is a lot of controversy about the use of amalgam in the dental profession, and many dentists still use it, we do not!
Decayed or broken teeth will be restored using BPA-free composite resin. It is a strong dental restorative material that is safe and does not crack teeth like amalgams do. It is aesthetic and because it is bonded to the tooth, it seals the tooth better than amalgam ever could. And, the best news is that it is mercury-free.
With the ever-increasing toxic burden our bodies face from foods, medications, and the environment, you should feel safe knowing your dental restorations will not harm your health. Amalgams can be removed carefully and safely. We use a rubber dam and high-velocity suction when removing amalgam fillings to minimize the risk to your health. Our office is also equipped with filters that rid the air of germs, allergens, and toxic chemicals.
In addition, chelation can help your body detoxify. Chelators are available at health food stores, or from your physician or alternative health care provider. We are so grateful, there is a better way!
