"Silver" amalgam fillings are composed of 50% elemental mercury and 50% other metals, like tin, silver and copper. Due to the high toxicity of elemental mercury, data regarding adverse effects on pregnant women and children, and the unappealing aesthetics of "silver" fillings, many patients do not want the material used in their mouths. Even if your dental professional does not place mercury-containing filling materials, you will want to ensure they have an amalgam separator, which captures the material before it enters our water supplies. .
We have installed an Amalgam Separator to capture and trap amalgam, which is removed from existing fillings. This equipment keeps mercury-containing filling material from entering our water supply. .
