It has become vital to us over recent years to know what is in what we eat, drink, and put on our skin. Why should concerns about what we put in our teeth be any different?
Dr. Embury is a holistic dentist who takes safety concerns seriously. For years dentists have used silver amalgam fillings, which are more than 50% mercury. Many people aren’t comfortable with that, and Dr. Embury understands your concerns.
What Makes Us A Holistic Dentist
We are a mercury-free, holistic dental practice. We use no amalgam fillings. And we also offer sanitary amalgam removal and high-speed suction to prevents you from ingesting or breathing in any mercury during the procedure.
What we do use are composite filling materials. Composites are safe and securely bonded to your tooth, which helps make your tooth resistant to fracture from everyday wear and tear. Also, they are aesthetically more pleasing than other options. Composites also don’t cause any sensitivity in your teeth, unlike temperature-sensitive alternatives.
