Advanced Dentistry is known for offering mercury free dentistry. The reason for this is simple: mercury is one of the most toxic substances known to man. However, earlier dentists used silver fillings or amalgams, and an amalgam could have up to 50% mercury. It was believed that mercury could be locked into fillings and could not escape. However, today it has been proven that mercury can be released from the fillings in the form of vapor, thus causing health hazards. This is where our mercury free dentistry has brought about a revolution.
Our Commitment to Your Health
We at Advanced Dentistry have not used a mercury amalgam filling for over 20 years. Our experienced mercury free dentist, Dr. Reilly is a member of the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology). They promote mercury-free dentistry by using fillings that do not contain mercury and by replacing mercury fillings. This is just one reason why Dr. Reilly can truly be called a mercury free dentist.
We Think Green
While offering mercury free dentistry we have also contributed towards environmental protection. Mercury is designated as a toxic poison that requires extraction filters and high tech disposal of the dental waste. However, the guidelines for disposing mercury are sometimes not followed, resulting in environment pollution.
Understanding how to replace mercury fillings with bio-compatible restoration options, Dr. Reilly, the mercury free dentist in Middlesex, NJ, follows the mercury removal treatment protocols recommended by the IAOMT.
If you have silver or amalgam fillings, and want or need to have them replaced simply call us or fill out the form on this page. We are committed to your health and think green as well.
