What is Mercury-Free Dentistry? 

Dental Amalgam (Silver) is a tooth filling material that is approximately 50% Mercury, a highly polluting neurotoxin.  Today, countries around the world are phasing out the use of amalgam … and phasing up the use of Mercury-Free Alternatives.

In the European Union, dental filling regulations have begun to take effect. Last year, the European Union adopted a regulation that banned amalgam use in children under the age of 15 years old, pregnant women, and breastfeeding mothers.

The use of mercury-silver, or amalgam, dental fillings has been banned in Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

At ProCare Family Dental, we are a Mercury-Free, Mercury-Safe Dental Practice. Our office has embraced changes that eliminate mercury exposure and virtually eliminates the disposal of silver particles into the sewer system. That means:

  • We do not place any Mercury-containing fillings (Dental Amalgam) into peoples’ teeth.
  • We use white (tooth colored) composite resin to fill cavities.
  • When removal of defective mercury-based fillings is needed we replace them with composite resin.

  •  We use Amalgam Separators in our Dental Suction System. This device designed to capture amalgam particles during silver fillings removal, from dental  office wastewater through sedimentation, filtration, centrifugation, or a combination of these mechanisms. Then the Amalgam particles get recycled. This product is required by the EPA’s “Dental Rule” regulation on amalgam waste. 
  • That means we protect our patients, ourselves and the environment from unnecessary mercury exposure during removal of silver fillings.
