The benefits of mercury free dentistry in Dayton, OH

We frequently see news stories claiming the dangers of mercury. Often we are aware of it in the food we eat, but what many people don’t realize is one of their biggest mercury exposure risks may be in their own mouth. If you look at your teeth and see silver or gray fillings in your teeth, you currently have mercury (amalgam) in your mouth.

Mercury free dentistry from dentist in Dayton, OH

Amalgam fillings contain 50 percent mercury, which is a known toxin. Because mercury emits vapor when heated, people who have mercury fillings for decades are continually being exposed to small amounts of toxic vapors every time they chew or brush their teeth.

The dental community has shifted towards mercury free fillings. They are a wonderful alternative to amalgam fillings because they are made out of composite resin, which is safe and biocompatible. Composite fillings can also be matched to your existing tooth color, providing a durable and natural looking restoration.

Dr. Cobb and the team at Alex Bell Dental do not use amalgam fillings because of the impact they can have on the health of the patients. In fact, most of his patients are unaware of the dangers of mercury exposure, which can include digestive, urinary, respiratory, and autoimmune conditions.

In addition to composite fillings, Dr. Cobb believes in the use of porcelain crowns. Porcelain is a natural and durable material that possesses many of the same characteristics of natural tooth enamel. It is a safe and effective material for long-term dental restorations.

At Alex Bell Dental, we focus on holistic dentistry, which considers your entire wellness with every treatment recommendation. We advocate the use of biocompatible materials that are healthy for you and the environment. Your health is our number one priority. When you visit us, you’ll find that we are not just here to correct problems with your teeth. We provide a host of services, including nutritional and lifestyle recommendations that will improve your overall wellness. If you are in the Dayton area and you would like to learn more about our mercury-free dentistry practice, call (937) 435 7311 today.
