Composition of Amalgam

Amalgam fillings, also called mercury fillings or silver fillings, are composed of Mercury and other alloys.

  • 50% mercury by weight.
  • Silver 
  • Tin
  • Copper

Mercury is considered a neurotoxin, and research has shown how it may be related to neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's disease. Patients face the highest mercury exposure during the placement and removal of dental fillings. Therefore, it is crucial for patients to opt for a biological dentist when undergoing amalgam filling removal. Throughout the removal procedure, there is a release of mercury vapor into the surrounding air, potentially inhaled by patients, as well as the dispersion of fine mercury particles within the mouth, which patients may inadvertently ingest. These factors collectively contribute to heightened levels of mercury toxicity within the body. If the body is intoxicated with mercury, our natural immunity is unable to expel it. It is important to consult a healthcare professional to facilitate the safe removal of these detrimental heavy metal toxins from the body.

We follow a strict SMART protocol to ensure patients’ safety during the amalgam removal process.
