Dentist in Sunbury focuses on Mercury-Free DentistryIt has been known for decades that mercury vapours can be harmful. In fact, mercury exposure has been linked to several medical conditions including immune deficiencies and other problems such as allergies, fibromyalgia, and muscle spasms. Studies continue to show the oral systemic connection and the importance of avoiding mercury. However, most patients are unaware of one of the most common sources of mercury that resides in their bodies; silver amalgam restorations.
Silver amalgam restorations are made of a combination of metals, and include up to 50 percent mercury by weight. This material can be toxic to the body when vapours are released, during cleaning, brushing of teeth, and even eating. These mercury vapours have negative health effects and may be the cause of many adverse medical conditions which can develop over time.
This is why the Smile In Style Dental practice in Sunbury focuses on providing mercury-free dentistry. Our practice strives to provide care of our patients without using silver amalgam restorations. Additionally, our practice can assist in the safe removal of amalgam restorations and replace them with safer, more biocompatible solutions such as composite resin or porcelain restorations. Resin restorations have been shown to be not only more aesthetic but safer for health and wellbeing. Porcelain restorations offer strength, comfort and longevity.
The dentists at Smile in Style are proud to offer mercury safe and mercury free dentistry. We continue to provide patients with safer alternatives and focus on holistic dental practices in our facility. We want to ensure the safety of our patients and staff and therefore do not place silver amalgam restorations in the mouths of our patients. Instead, we recommend patients consider alternatives such as resin or porcelain restorations which are more natural looking. Many patients consider tooth-colour restorations because they keep their smile looking beautiful and they do not stand out when they smile, laugh, or talk.
The team at Smile in Style welcome new patients to the practice and encourage patients in and around the Melbourne Metropolitan area to contact them to learn more about the benefits of avoiding silver amalgam restorations and also the safe removal and replacement of amalgam restorations.
