METAL FREE GENERAL DENTISTRY
Mercury vapor and dental infections can have a negative impact on overall health. Due to this concern, we focus on patient education and strive to remove mercury amalgam, silver, fillings in a safe way. To accomplish this, we follow removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations.
Dr. Levi is highly aware and trained to safely remove mercury fillings. Safe removal includes use of an Isolite or Rubber dam, the option of pure oxygen and face barriers, and copious amount of water with suction.
After the mercury is removed, we restore the tooth with safe biocompatible materials. The mercury that is removed is isolated from our patients and staff and disposed of responsibly. In addition, we have installed a special water filters that separates the mercury so it does not polute the water of the San Francisco Bay.
