Mercury-Free Dentistry

Mercury-Free DentistryUntil recently, the FDA approved the use of dental amalgam, which contains about 50% mercury. In 2008, the FDA officially changed its position and now admits that mercury vapors emitted while chewing can negatively affect a person’s health. While the ADA still holds the position that amalgam fillings are safe for widespread use, at Webster Dental Associates, we won’t gamble with your health.

Dr. Golparvar and our team practice mercury-free dentistry, which means that we do not fill cavities with dental amalgam. Instead, we use tooth-colored, mercury-free alternatives. Tooth-colored fillings are made from a composite resin material that can be tinted to match your tooth color. The composite resin bonds with the tooth and affords more conservative tooth preparation than its mercury counterpart.

If you currently have metal/mercury fillings, ask Dr. Golparvar about safe mercury removal. In most cases, we can eliminate the threat of mercury filling by replacing them with composite resins. Those at high risk, especially pregnant and breastfeeding women and those with health conditions that may make them more sensitive to mercury exposure, should discuss their options with Dr. Golparvar as soon as possible.
