What happens during the Safe Mercury Removal process?
The procedure will begin by preparing the room for proper filtration and air circulation. We will then ensure that you are wearing the proper protective equipment so that you are not exposed to mercury vapors while the fillings are removed. A dental dam is placed over the tooth and an anesthetic used to numb the area. We then remove the filling and properly dispose of any pieces that fall away. You will be instructed to rinse with a charcoal solution to help absorb any residual mercury in the mouth. We then place the new composite resin filling during a typical filling procedure.
If you have amalgam (metal) fillings and would like to have them removed, call our office today so that we can help schedule you with an appointment.
