Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal
One of the main holistic dentistry services that Casuarina Dental Family and Holistic Care provides is the safe removal of mercury amalgam (such as that found in old metal fillings). We perform this procedure with the utmost care to minimise the risk of you swallowing toxic debris. Proper isolation and high volume suction are critical. So, we use a rubber dam to protect you, and to improve the bond of the new restoration.
Once all mercury is safely removed, the debris must then be properly disposed. Here at Casuarina Dental Family and Holistic Care, we take environmental considerations seriously. So we’ve made sure our disposal methods are as safe as possible. Our unique suction system separates 99% of the amalgam, trapping it in a special filter, before the waste fluid reaches the drain. This new standard of environmental care for dentists (with which Casuarina Dental Family and Holistic Care is already compliant) eradicates mercury contamination of water, and will soon become law for all Australian dental practices.
We proudly follow IAOMT Protocol. The IAOMT protocol recommendations for amalgam removal are known as the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART). Learn more - https://iaomt.org/resources/safe-removal-amalgam-fillings/
