Safe Removal of Mercury Fillings in Orange, CA
SMART stands for Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique and involves stringent safety measures set forth by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. The steps we follow protect our patients and staff and ensure that mercury vapors released are safely contained when removing amalgam fillings.
For example, each treatment room must have adequate filtration in place to remove mercury vapors and amalgam filling particles from the air. Patients and staff must wear protective coverings, and oxygen is delivered to the patient to avoid inhaling the vapors released.
Should You Have Mercury Fillings Removed?
It’s a good idea to have mercury fillings removed, but it may not be the right step for everyone. We recommend scheduling an appointment with Dr. Jackson at our Orange, CA dental office so she can examine your fillings and explain her findings to you.
If we agree that removing your amalgam fillings is appropriate in your case, she will explain the safety measures we have in place and what you can expect from the removal process.
