Amalgam Filling Removal


“Healthy and Biological Dentistry with Preventive Procedures”

All amalgam restorations (gray fillings) contain 50% mercury and mercury vapor is released during chewing, brushing, clenching and cleaning. However, most of the mercury vapor is also released while making amalgam fillings and removing them.

. Subsequent to amalgam fillings the severity of some diseases (Tachycardia, Alzheimer, MS, Parkinson, Thyroid Diseases, Intestinal Problems, etc.) increases and decreases when the fillings are removed under appropriate conditions. For this reason, a special protocol is applied when removing amalgam fillings to ensure the safety of the patient, the physician, the healthcare staff and the environment.

So when should amalgam fillings change?

Amalgam fillings should be changed when the integrity of the fillings is compromised, if there are openings on the edges, if there are too many amalgam fillings in the mouth (as the amount of mercury vapor to be released may increase and cause toxic effects), in the presence of diseases whose exact cause cannot be found (to eliminate possible factors), if detoxification is required to for the toxins in the body, replacement of these fillings is recommended.
