Mercury-safe filling removal in Louisville, CO
Mercury-free dentistry isn't just not using mercury fillings. While many dentists in the Boulder / Denver metro area are technically "mercury-free, " at Studio Z Dental, we take it one step further by being "mercury-safe." What's the difference? By being "mercury-safe," we follow the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology's (IAOMT) protocols to keep you from being exposed to high levels of mercury released during removal. These techniques are all part of our holistic dentistry philosophy intended to keep you as healthy as can be.
How we remove mercury fillings, just removing a filling, is what's important. Did you know that removing a silver filling exposes you to mercury levels at least 1,000x times the EPA's safe level of exposure?! However, when you have this procedure performed in a mercury-safe environment, we can drastically reduce your exposure.
Our high-tech Swiss purification system (IQ Air) sits close to the mouth area. It sucks out mercury vapor so you don't inhale it during the procedure. The "electrophoresis effect" has been shown to effectively reduce levels of mercury vapor, creating a greater focus on safety in the dental workplace. We also place you on pure oxygen to ensure you are getting fresh, clean air throughout the process. It's much better for your body and your health; all it takes is extra time and equipment. Studio Z Dental is one of the few offices in the area with this advanced equipment and offers such a safe procedure for removing silver amalgam.
