Amalgam Removal

Amalgam is the silver tooth-filling which was used a long time ago and still is being used till this day. It is composed of a combination of elements, the most important of which is mercury. Recent studies have showed that the presence of mercury in the oral cavity is unhealthy and can prove to be dangerous on the long-term. With the neo-movement of metal-free health and the proven clinical findings of the harms of mercury on the long term, amalgam has been thrown out as a filling option for many dentists, and replaced with the more healthy tooth colored fillings. For these reasons, a majority of people are opting for its removal and consequent replacement with the clinically proven safe tooth colored fillings.

Although such choices are healthy and fruitful aesthetically, amalgam removal is no joke.
