Dr. George Dental in Delray Beach believes in proactive dentistry. He also believes in metal free dentistry.
As an advocate for metal free dentistry Dr. George has helped hundreds of people like you get healthy with non-metal dental restorations.
No More Silver with Metal Free Dentistry
Being metal free means removing and replacing your restorations. That means old silver amalgam fillings and dental crowns.
With metal free dentistry you aren’t going to feel the metal allergies that you have been prone to your entire life. You won’t be subjected to mercury poisoning either.
If you follow this dental blog, and you should, you will know that silver amalgam fillings contain mercury. You will also recall that mercury is toxic, especially when released into the bloodstream.
When the FDA and the AMA say that silver amalgam fillings are safe they are talking about fillings that are fully intact. They aren’t talking about old fillings that are cracked and broken. Cracked, broken and leaky fillings mean mercury is getting into your bloodstream.
The best way to prevent toxic mercury from entering your bloodstream is to schedule an appointment for old silver amalgam filling removal and replacement.
Old Silver Amalgams and Metal Free Dentistry
When you first visit with Dr. George and his team your mouth will be examined to check for damage to your restorations. Your Delray Beach dentist will check for leaks as well.
When fillings get old, or even before, they have a tendency to expand and contract when there is a change in temperature. This causes them to leak. Leaky fillings are even more reason for replacement.
Replacing and Restoring Silver Amalgam Fillings
If you have old silver amalgam fillings, Dr. George and his team will remove them in a safe environment before refilling with a biocompatible material that is matched to the rest of the tooth.
In some cases you may need to crown the tooth because the filling was large and because it caused additional damage.
If this is the case, your Delray Beach dentist will cap the tooth colored filling with a crown that looks just like the tooth. This will protect it from further damage.
