Holistic Dentistry

A Mercury-free Holistic Dentist

get amalgam fillings from your holistic dentist in AtlantaSince the 1800’s, dentists have been using amalgam fillings that contain mercury. Holistically-concerned individuals feel that there is a potential for negative health risks with these silver amalgam fillings because they actually contain over 50 percent mercury. And although the American Dental Association has deemed amalgam fillings to be safe, Dr. Flax understands how you could be uncomfortable having mercury in your mouth.

Today, we have another option. White fillings are a composite that offer many benefits over silver amalgam fillings. They provide a seal to the tooth because they are bonded directly to it, they cause less post-operative sensitivity, and they are tooth-colored so they look much nicer. If you are interested in learning more about white fillings, please visit our mercury-free dentist page.

Sanitary Amalgam Fillings Removal Services

If you have decided that you would like to replace your old amalgam fillings with composite white fillings, we offer sanitary amalgam fillings removal services. We can provide this treatment safely, right here in the comfort of our office. There are extra safety precautions we use to ensure that you do not breathe in or swallow any of the potentially harmful particles during this procedure. As the old amalgam fillings are drilled away, there may be some mercury-containing dust that is created so we use a rubber dam or the isolite to isolate the area, as well as an alternate breathing source.
