Come visit us and learn about your health, preservatives, acids, toxins, and why quality care means more than just nice looking teeth.

Dr. Oz Discusses Mercury Fillings In Teeth – The Danger And His Recommendations

Silver Mercury Fillings, or Amalgams, have been around since the beginning of dentistry. Back in those days it seemed like a good idea to mix mercury with silver and place it into teeth. The dangers of mercury were not yet known…

Silver Mercury Fillings were invented in 1819 (the first amalgam filling was placed in 1830 in the USA).  The car was not invented until 1885!

Many things have changed since the wild west days, but mercury fillings are still placed in the United States.

Mercury fillings have been banned in Europe and Canada for their obvious release of Mercury and consequent toxicity. Nobody is denying this anymore, not even the FDA.

At Ideal Dentistry we put your health first. We have been mercury free and are a certified mercury free dental practice.

If you have mercury fillings that you are concerned about, seek out a dentist that practices what he/she preaches (Do they have mercury in their mouth? Did they just recently stop placing mercury fillings or are they still placing them?).

Read this interview with Dr. Oz and watch the “smoking teeth” video to see the actual mercury vapors released by the silver mercury fillings.


Single Tooth Makeover

What a difference a small white filling can make.

The old filling, an amalgam filling (50% Mercury, 50% silver), was leaking and had recurrent decay under it.

The “white filling” is placed after gently removing the old filling and any associated decay.  Then a complex bonding procedure is followed closely, ensuring a perfect bond and beautiful aesthetics.

All too often old silver mercury fillings like this result in fractured teeth which then require extensive rebuilding, root canal therapy, or even removal of the tooth.  Prevention and early intervention are the only two ways to significantly reduce the risk of this happening.
