Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, dental offices are the main contributors of environmental mercury pollution. This problem has become so severe, there is now a mandate awaiting approval that will require all dentists to equip their practices with a mercury scavenging system called an amalgam separator.
This amalgam separator collects the material from the fillings for proper disposal which begs a question: if the mercury fillings are considered a severe hazard for the health of our environment, is it possible these fillings could also have a negative impact on the health of a person with the fillings in their mouth?
At White Sands Dentistry, we decided to take this scientific research seriously. We have been a mercury-free office, as we discontinued placement of mercury amalgam fillings many years ago. Recently, we decided to become a mercury-safe dental office as well, and we are proud to announce that we have completed certification by the S.M.A.R.T program developed by IAOMT. This removal technique dramatically reduces the amount of mercury exposure. In addition, we now offer a $99 new patient special cleaning, exam, x-rays and nutritional counseling.
