Here at Madison Dental, we are proud to offer amalgam-free fillings for our patients.
Did you know that amalgam is dangerous for not only your mouth but also your general health? Many people have amalgam fillings, which release poisonous mercury into your mouth. That is the last thing you want in your body.
Amalgam is a type of metal that expands when it touches hot and cold temperatures. When used as a filling, it can leak a little bit every time the filling pulls away from the tooth. This leaves a space for decay to form.
Since amalgam is a poison and can cause even more decay, you should contact us if you have an amalgam filling. You don’t need to be scared. We can remove the amalgam filling and replace it with a filling using safer alternatives.
We are proud to offer amalgam-free fillings. We want to ensure that our patients are safe not just today but long term as well. In fact, amalgam fillings are done by 75% of doctors, so make sure that you do your research prior to making a permanent change to your mouth.
If you have any questions about amalgam-free fillings, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (281) 397-0311.
