Mercury safety is an important topic in the dental community today. Mercury is viewed by the WHO as a highly toxic substance.
Once absorbed by tissues and organs, mercury is not naturally eliminated by the body. Therefore it can have toxic effects over time.
For this reason, it is important to take measures to reduce any exposure to this substance.
At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, we do more than avoid mercury; we perform amalgam removal using the IAOMT SMART protocol.
Mercury safety means that amalgams are removed with minimal impact to the guest, the dental team, and the environment.
One way is by using a cutting technique rather than drilling.
Additional steps for mercury safety include, covering the guest from head to toe, isolation of the tooth during the removal process,
The delivery of supplemental oxygen that minimizes inhalation of tiny mercury particles and air purification systems in the room along with other detailed protocol
Mercury Detox Protocol, taken before and after mercury removal!
