When you open your mouth, do you see dark grey spots on your teeth? They are probably the old amalgam fillings that were placed when you were little. Although amalgam fillings had been widely in use in the past, aesthetic, environmental and health-related concerns, as well as the availability of reliable and cosmetic dental filling materials, have contributed to declining usage. Concerns about the toxicity of mercury, in particular, makes the use of this material controversial—but Dr. Ha has a solution! We offer amalgam filling removal at our North York office.
With this in mind, when you get your amalgam fillings replaced with a white material, it is prudent to take precautions to minimize your exposure to the mercury vapour released during the removal process. North York dentist Dr. Gina Ha at Dr. Gina Ha & Associates has learned and adapted the protocol recommended by IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology) for safely removing the dental amalgam fillings.
If you would like to get rid of all your black fillings without worrying about exposure to mercury vapour, please contact Dr. Ha right now!
