Q. Do you use amalgams as a filling material?
A. No we do not. Research has shown that Silver fillings (also known as amalgam or mercury Fillings) release small amounts of mercury vapour.* While the amounts are small and the claim is that the levels are safe we feel that there is no safe level of mercury exposure. We have eliminated the use of this material from our office and do not support is continued use. We have also taken additional steps to ensure your safety when it is necessary to remove these fillings.
