Choosing Safer Alternatives For Our Patients
When it comes to cavities, dental fillings can be a quick and effective solution to unsightly gaps and problematic holes.
Many of us who have undergone treatment for dental fillings in the past, might have been happy with the results, but those who have undertaken the procedure in the distant past may find that the materials used to plug cavities includes potentially harmful substances like zinc, copper and mercury. It’s shocking to think, but some historic dental fillings can contain up to 50% mercury.

The dangers of mercury amalgam
Mercury amalgam used in dental fillings typically contain a minimum of 50% mercury, high concentrations of silver and significant levels of copper. Although mercury has long been used in dental care and fillings, in recent years, there’s been growing concern about individual sensitivity to mercury, implications on pollution, and risk to health.
If you’re concerned that you might be sensitive to mercury and wish to replace your current set of fillings, you’ve come to the right place. If you feel as though you need some further consultation and guidance on the matter, our team will talk you through all the possible implications of maintaining mercury amalgam fillings and the alternative options available to you.
