Dental clinic in Tucson, AZ offers safe mercury amalgam removal

By

mercury amalgam removal from Dr. Jeanne Anne Krizman DMD MPH, Tucson Biological Dentistry
Tucson Biological Dentistry is a clinic in Tucson, Arizona that offers a wide range of dental services. Dr. Krizman and her team offer integrative biological dentistry for patients ready to focus on the health of their smile and their body. She provides treatments including the safe removal of mercury amalgam fillings.

What are mercury fillings?

For decades, many dentists have treated cavities with silver amalgam fillings. These fillings are a combination of metals as well as mercury – a substance that is toxic to the human body. Patients who have silver amalgam fillings can have mercury-laden fillings removed and replaced with composite resin alternatives.

How do composite resin fillings differ from silver amalgam fillings?

First, composite resin fillings do not have mercury. Second, they do not expand and contract with temperature changes, reducing the risk of bacteria seeping inside the tooth in this way. Third, composite resin fillings are more aesthetic and blend in with the natural smile, unlike silver amalgam fillings which stand out. When given the option of either, patients are urged to consider the advantages of the latter.

Dr. Krizman is accredited by the IAOMT (an organization also known as the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology) and is one of the few in the area with these credentials. She closely follows the protocols set forth by this organization to ensure patients and staff are protected throughout the procedure.
