Get that old toxic filling out of your teeth now!
An old and outdated form of fillings that have been used in dentistry for over 150 years and were the primary type of filling in dental offices until the recent decades. Amalgam is a durable filling material created from metal alloy and mercury. Such a seal is often called silver, mercury, metal, or iron. Currently, dental clinics choose to install modern fillings, and they are looking to get SMART Dental Amalgam Removal in Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah.
Are they Harmful?
There are various studies claiming that these traditional fillings are dangerous to health. Some experts claim that such fillings are chemical bombs that contribute to some incurable diseases.
The issue is also discussed in the medical literature and often discusses rare allergic reactions, excluding toxicity when using fillings. The most significant risk of mercury entering the human body occurs when installing and replacing amalgam fillings. For this reason, special amalgams in capsule form are currently used.
The fillings are replaced to avoid exposure to mercury and get a natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing effect. Your body will be protected from harmful chemicals.
Should they be Changed to Modern Options?
Experts suggest that you replace your old fillings completely. However, repeated tooth irritations can do more harm than good. The fillings are reliable and have antiseptic properties due to silver inclusion. They should be changed to current treatment options for the following reasons:
Aesthetically Unappealing: These fillings look pretty unnatural and unappealing because it has a distinct color than the tooth enamel.
Toxicity: In small quantities, the mercury contained in the alloy releases vapors into the human oral cavity.
High Thermal Conductivity: When eating hot or cold food or drink, a tooth with such a filling may react with increased sensitivity to a thermal stimulus
Other Complexities: when closing the carious cavity with an amalgam filling, the doctor is not able to restore the surface of the tooth with tubercles and fissures. This entails problems with the occlusion of the upper and lower dentition, resulting in problems with the temporomandibular joint, the formation of facial asymmetry, etc.
The best candidate for the treatment is someone having the following conditions:
- Cavity developing around the filling
- Large fillings
- Weakened teeth
- Aesthetic reasons
Anyone can get the treatment, but the only case in which it is exceptionally undesirable to remove the filling is when a woman is pregnant or lactating. If conception already occurred before the removal of mercury from the jaw, the deduction must be postponed until the end of feeding the child.
The patient must prepare the body in advance for the possible intake of toxic substances in order to minimize harm and eliminate them as soon as possible.
Two weeks before the procedure, start taking an increased dose of vitamin C as an essential antioxidant. And maintain an overall balanced diet.
The removal process itself is carried out strictly according to the Protocol for Safe.
Procedure and Protocols:
The critical removal principle is to remove the filling rapidly and leave no residues from the oral environment and air.
The amalgam is isolated from the oral environment with a rubber dam which we call a rubber cover that is removed from the tooth with a strong aspirator.
Afterward, the desired treatment is applied to the cleaned area.
The physician’s own protection is as essential as the patient’s protection from amalgam particles during the removal. The healthcare team should also be protected from the mercury and metal particles released into the environment.
