Have you ever wondered what it might be like to experience total wellness in mind, body, and spirit? Now you can! Here are some quick facts about mercury-free dentistry and how our dental health professionals can help you achieve optimal oral and overall health.


Unlike standard dentistry approaches, mercury-free and holistic dentists take a more integrated approach to oral care. This means that they offer services not only to encourage optimal dental health but to help you maintain wellness in all areas.

Some of the incredible benefits of mercury-free dentistry include:

  • It focuses on improving all areas of your health
  • It involves personalized treatments to suit your unique needs
  • It lowers your overall dentistry costs by focusing on preventative treatments
  • It encourages optimum healing and health

Choose Mercury-Free Dentistry: How to Become a Smart Dental Healthcare Consumer

Traditionally, mercury has been used in many dental treatments, but today, there are many dentists who recognize the risk of products such as amalgam fillings and strive to use safer and more environmentally-friendly products in their practice.

For such dental healthcare professionals, there are a number of different philosophies that exist, and in order to become a more informed consumer, it’s important that you understand the unique aims of each approach.

  1. Mercury-Free Dentistry: This typically refers to a dental practice or clinic that doesn’t offer dental amalgam fillings for their patients.

  2. Mercury-Safe Dentistry: Such dentists follow rigorous safety measures to prevent mercury exposure to their patients and offer services such as safe mercury removal (removing existing metal fillings) and replacing them with safer choices such as porcelain or composite ones.

  3. Biocompatible Dentistry: This philosophy centers around using both mercury-free and mercury-safe dentistry, while considering the impact of dental conditions, tools, and treatments on your oral and overall health.

Mercury-Free Dentistry: What to Do During Your Appointment

When you book an appointment with a mercury-free dentist, it’s important to discuss all your health concerns with them. To make the most of your consultation, here are a few things to keep in mind.

  1. Remember Your Rights as a Patient

As a dental patient, it is extremely important that you have certain rights to ensure you are receiving the highest-quality and safest oral healthcare treatments. Remember, that as a patient, you have the right to:

  • Know what tools and materials are being put into your mouth
  • Express any concerns you may have about treatments offered to you
  • Ask your dentist not to use any metal/silver/amalgam fillings

In addition, don’t forget to talk to your dentist prior to your treatment about the procedures and the materials being used.

  1. Make Sure Your Dentist Follows the SMART Technique

If you are visiting a dentist to get your amalgam fillings removed and replaced with composite ones, then you should make sure that they are following the SMART (Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal) technique.

By ensuring that your dental healthcare professional is following all the necessary protocols when removing your metal fillings, you can rest assured that any mercury exposure to you, your dentist, and dental assistant, will be minimized.

  1. Bring Any Research You’ve Done to Your Appointment

While it’s important to tell your dentist about anything that you’ve read regarding mercury-free dentistry, you can truly become an informed patient by taking a copy with you to the appointment. This will allow you to fully address any concerns you may have regarding amalgam fillings and mercury exposure and their potential health risks.

Remember: This means doing your own research before your appointment, and while this may be more time consuming, it will ensure you receive the safety and best treatment for you and your family.
