Why You Should Say No to Amalgam Fillings

Filed under: Uncategorized — tntadmin @

At The Aesthetic Dental Studio of Rhode Island, we utilize composite plastic resins also known as white fillings, to enhance the esthetics of your smile. White fillings are matched to be the same color as your teeth and therefore, used to give patients a more natural appearance plus they are safer than Amalgam fillings. Amalgam (silver) fillings are now a thing of the past because they contain almost as much mercury as a thermometer. In fact, the most dangerous constituent of an amalgam filling is mercury. Mercury in amalgam fillings tends to target the immune, nervous, digestive and the respiratory systems and can lead to serious medical conditions.

Dr. Candida Castillo is an experienced dentist at the Aesthetic Dental Studio. Being a holistic dentist herself, Dr. Castillo strongly believes in restricting the use of mercury-containing amalgam as a filling material due to its harmful effects on human health. If you have amalgam fillings in your mouth, you should visit Dr. Castillo today and eliminate this poison in your teeth. Dr. Castillo utilizes a special technique for removal of amalgam fillings so that you don’t inhale or ingest mercury vapor during the procedure.

If you have any preexisting amalgam fillings in your mouth, you should get them check for possible leakage, and if so, have them removed at the earliest possibility, in order to prevent yourself from the long-term harmful effects of mercury. Getting your old amalgam fillings can also be very dangerous as the mercury vapors emitted during amalgam removal are absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Therefore, it is important that you should visit an experienced holistic dentist, who knows the correct method of removing amalgam fillings while at the same time, not causing any harm to you.
