Dr. George Sanchez believes in safe dentistry. That’s why his Delray Beach dentist’s office is a mercury free dental practice.
Being mercury free is imperative when it comes to oral and overall health because you won’t have to worry about toxins seeping into your body.
Being Mercury Free is better
While some dentists don’t see a problem with silver amalgam fillings, this doctor in Delray Beach does. Because amalgam fillings contain mercury, a toxic element, there is a risk.
That risk includes broken fillings. Once a silver amalgam filling cracks or breaks it can easily leak into your system. Those leaks will undoubtedly cause mercury to invade your body.
Being mercury free means no risk of toxins leaking into your body. Silver amalgam fillings contain silver and other metals, but they also contain mercury.
Why Mercury Fillings are Bad
Back in the day silver amalgam fillings were the only choice that dentists had when it came to dental fillings. Fast forward to today and medical professionals are beginning to realize the long term effects of mercury on the body.
Although mercury is a naturally produced substance it doesn’t do you any good. In fact, you could be releasing the mercury vapor into your body every time you chew.
Studies show that the vapors are toxic and absorbed into your body. Conditions sited include chronic muscle and body aches, stress and anxiety.
With that being said, that isn’t the only thing wrong with mercury fillings. While mercury is a natural substance it isn’t safe. Most consumer products have done away with it as an ingredient, but not silver amalgam dental fillings.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Your Delray Beach dentist only uses biocompatible substances to fill teeth. Tooth colored fillings, matched to the rest of your smile strengthen the tooth and require less removal of the natural tooth. This means stronger restorations.
In addition, silver mercury fillings won’t expand. You won’t have to worry about mercury seepage as natural colored fillings will not expand and contract either.
Furthermore silver fillings are not attractive. Resin, porcelain and other types of materials look just like a natural tooth. Best of all tooth colored fillings are mercury free.
