Safe Removal of Mercury Amalgam Fillings


Safe Removal of Mercury Amalgam Fillings


Mercury amalgam fillings contain 50% mercury, and continually release mercury vapor. Mercury is the most toxic nonradioactive substance known. If you are among the growing number of people who are concerned about the mercury in your amalgam fillings, and desire to have them replaced with more biocompatible fillings, then you are probably already aware of the importance of removing them carefully and properly. Mainstream dentists routinely drill out mercury amalgam fillings without using safety protocols, not realizing that doing so causes a dangerously high release of mercury vapor that you, the dentist, and the dental staff are exposed to inhaling.

A "biological" dentist is trained in safe mercury amalgam removal techniques, and uses specific protective protocols and equipment to protect everyone involved from unnecessary mercury exposure. Pictured on the right are the specialized vaccuum and mercury vapor filtration unit and the supplemental oxygen supply for the patient's safety. Dr Zimmer is a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, and follows their safe removal protocols. He has also completed course work through New Directions Dentistry, an organization whose mission is to train practitioners in all aspects of making their practices Mercury-Safe.
