Safe Mercury Removal

Amalgam dental fillings have been widely used for more than 150 years. We should not assume this is proof of efficiency nor of safety. When amalgam was first developed, the standard practice was also to perform surgery without sanitizing the hands first. We would not view this as practical or safe by today's standards. An experienced biological dentist who has reviewed literature on the matter of amalgam, Dr. Pfister recognizes that the use of this substance is antiquated, especially in light of healthier alternatives.

The issue with dental amalgam is the inclusion of mercury. Due to the toxicity of this natural element, health can be negatively impacted by just one mercury-laden filling. The risk for toxicity is present at all times, increasing when filling material becomes heated. Chewing heats amalgam and allows mercury to escape. Amalgam also gets heated when a filling is removed via standard protocol.

If you have amalgam fillings that you wish to have removed, we urge you not to rush into this process! If amalgam is not properly removed, large amounts of toxic mercury will be released into the body, creating an even bigger threat to your health. Mercury and other heavy metals are easy to be exposed to but are very hard for your body to remove. Removal with a dental drill allows tiny particles of mercury vapor to escape directly into the mouth where they can be inhaled and ingested. Dr. Pfister has been educated and properly trained on the safe removal of amalgam fillings. Following the protocol developed by members of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, Dr. Pfister protects your health, his and his team's health, and the environment from mercury toxicity.

Some of the steps involved in the safe removal of mercury fillings include:
  • Alternative air source via a comfortable nasal mask.
  • Protective rubber sheeting around the tooth to keep tiny particles from reaching surrounding tissues and being swallowed.
  • High-volume suction placed in close proximity to the operative area to catch particles and vapor.
  • Precise "chunking" technique as opposed to drilling the whole filling out.
  • High amounts of water to keep the filling cool to reduce mercury vapor production.
  • Immediate oral irrigation after the filling has been removed.
  • Operatory air-purifiers placed on chin during removal to remove mercury particulates from the air.
  • Disposable gown to reduce the amount of amalgam debris on your clothing.
  • Nutritional counseling prior to mercury removal to support your body's natural detox pathways and to "prime your system" for any potential exposure.
Amalgam is dangerous when in a dental filling and even more so if not handled properly during removal. Trusted health and wellness expert Dr. Joseph Mercola attributes his own experience with kidney damage to a lack of awareness regarding the dangers of improper amalgam removal. He encourages individuals seeking amalgam removal to work only with a qualified dentist and to prepare their body for the optimal detoxification of mercury after care.

Removing amalgam fillings can change your health for the better. Learn more about our practice and our protocol in your consultation with Dr. Pfister.
