When a tooth is in need of a restoration, there are many options regarding the material that is used to restore that tooth. Although amalgam fillings and metal crowns are the most commonly used materials, Agoura Dental Group offers a wide range of safer restorative options. Over the years, the margin of the silver fillings opens up and creates an environment for bacteria to grow. This could be start of the cavities initial development. At Agoura Dental Group, the removal of old silver fillings takes place with the most advanced vacuum like technology that removes the old filling in the most holistic way.

Normally fillings are removed with a dental drill which puts a patient’s health at risk. When the drill starts drilling into the filling, mercury vapor is released into the patient’s body which can cause many problems in the long run. When mercury is released into one’s body, side effects can occur. Studies have shown that the main reason those who have mercury fillings experience headaches, nausea and fatigue is because of mercury that had been released from a filling. Our top of the line filling removal device, removes the previous filling while ensuring that mercury does not get released into the patients mouth. Furthermore, we take pride in the fact that we properly isolate our patient’s mouth in order to lessen the chance of mercury being swallowed by the patient during the silver filling removal procedure.
