WHAT IS THE SAFE MERCURY AMALGAM REMOVAL TECHNIQUE?
Become Mercury-Free Today!
Our dental practice stands out safe replacement fillings amalgam to mercury by more bio-compatible materials, Zirconia Crowns and Inlays as well as Composite
We perform the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) in our practice according to the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology – IAOMT.
Our dental practice is regulated by the IAOMT Academy to perform the SMART procedure. Learn more about the IAOMT SMART Program.
Safe Mercury Filling Removal Protocol
Mercury toxicity has been documented 2,000 years ago; Mercury (Hg+) is a metal with a particular characteristic, which of being liquid at room temperature. This compound is found in organic form (Hg), inorganic (Hg+, Hg2+) and also in the form of vapor in his elementary State (Hg0).
The organic form of mercury is more toxic than the inorganic form.
Then it will be true that:
- The mercury vapors can be inhaled by nasal mucosa, from the systemic circulation and bronco-pulmonary apparatus accumulating in the olfactory bulbs, pituitary gland and may cause electrolyte imbalances, mercury may be accumulated in red blood cells and can reduce the ability to transport oxygen.
- That the percentage of oxyhemoglobin from 70% decrease up to 20-30%.
- It has been scientifically demonstrated a remission of sequential related pathology, after removing amalgam fillings.
- That there may be neurological symptoms: depression, migraines, etc.
- Symptoms of oral cavity: bleeding, halitosis, metallic taste, leukoplakia, cancer sores.
- Immunologic symptoms: allergy, asthma, sinusitis.
- 7. Endocrine symptoms: fatigue, hypoxia, excessive perspiration, muscle weakness, edema, inhibition of the immune system
It is claimed that oral bacteria can methylate the mercury in the presence of negative reduction potential and the high negative charge amalgam may be at risk, and that the presence of electro galvanic currents in the mouth can influence the rate of release of mercury from amalgam fillings which are anodic and hence metal ions and being the saliva a liquid electrolyte could be transferred to the oral environment.
In the USA there are several associations, like IAOMT, that require total removal of mercury compounds in dentistry, the problem became public knowledge some years ago, through publications, books and television shows.
Today, with Metal-Free fillings and Zirconia Oxide prosthesis these threats no longer exist.
Did you know that?
- The amalgam was superior to composite fillings but it is no longer acceptable due to the toxicity of mercury.
- The amalgamation is considered to be one of the biggest sources of mercury pollution.
- When amalgam fillings need to be removed, you must follow a specific Protocol to protect against mercury contamination.
- Only one gram of mercury can contaminate 20,000 pounds of food.
- Now even mercury thermometers have been forbidden.
- In the distant past dentists worked the amalgams with bare hands and the mercury in excess was cleaned by throwing it into the garbage can.
