Most of the old amalgam fillings are a hazard to the tooth integrity. Tooth fractures caused by old amalgam fillings cause bacteria to penetrate and can cause tooth decay, cracked tooth syndrome and may lead to tooth loss.
We normally use Biocompatible ceramic restorations to replace amalgam restorations. It is done on the same day and with the correct preparation it will act like a helmet and create a super tooth that will last ages. Composite resin is a plastic and not always the best solution.
Our Safe Amalgam Removal Protocol includes the use of IQ Air machine to purify the air and remove bacteria, gaseous chemicals and unpleasant odours.
It is an excellent feature and it makes our clinic a more health friendly place to be.
