Mercury & Amalgam Removal

Amalgam fillings contain mercury, which can be harmful when exposed to the body in high doses. That is why we utilize the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) when removing amalgam fillings. SMART is a safe and effective protocol developed by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT). This technique involves several steps to minimize the patient’s exposure to mercury vapor and particles during the removal process.

  • We isolate the affected with a rubber dam to prevent the patient from swallowing any mercury particles or vapor.
  • The high-volume suction system is used to capture any mercury vapor or particles released during the removal process.
  • We provide our staff with protective equipment, including a full-face respirator and protective clothing, to minimize their exposure to mercury vapor and particles.
  • We provide our patients with an alternative air supply to breathe during the removal process to avoid inhaling any mercury vapor or particles.
  • We remove the amalgam filling in large chunks rather than grinding it down to minimize the amount of mercury vapor and particles released.
  • We dispose of the amalgam filling as hazardous waste, following strict guidelines to ensure it is handled and disposed of safely.
