The following is an important video from the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. All mercury and silver fillings have the potential to leak mercury into a patient’s mouth and require action to prevent mercury exposure.
Dr. Srinivasan and Aesthetic Dental Creations are concerned about individuals with Metal Mercury fillings and can help you stop the ongoing potential health risk your teeth with metal mercury fillings pose to you every day they remain in your mouth. We encourage you to call and ask about our procedures that deal with these kind of issues. The Aesthetic Dental Creations office is a mercury free office.
We only change metal mercury if they are “leaky” and have open margins. We take high resolution pictures to detect if there are openings where decay can get under and also check for their integrity.
Concerned individuals are any patient that have had mercury metal fillings, especially women who plan to have children as the mercury from fillings can transfer to a fetus and increases higher even after birth from breast feeding. As you can see in the video, mercury can come off fillings every time you stimulate them, grind your teeth, have a drink of hot coffee or tea and can continue for at least an hour and a half. Watch the full video below to learn more about the how toxic metal mercury fillings can be.
