Safe Amalgam Removal Be SMART

When it comes to getting your mercury amalgam fillings removed - you need to think SMART.

SMART stands for safe mercury amalgam removal technique and it is a system holistic dentists use to minimise any exposure to mercury when you get your amalgam fillings replaced.

Drilling a filling releases mercury vapour and mercury-containing particles exposing you to high levels of this toxic heavy metal and this is why you need to be SMART and make sure you utilise a certified holistic dentist for the process.

6-Step Amalgam Removal Process

As part of our 6-Step Amalgam Removal process, you will receive a detailed information booklet about mercury and its health impacts prior to your initial visit where you will receive a thorough amalgam removal consultation including a full comprehensive dental examination Including a Hidden Amalgam Check…

Where you’ll get x-rays and photographs taken during your assessment to check for any hidden amalgam under white fillings… and we also look for any cracks, decay, infections, mouth and jaw joint issues or active gum disease.

At the consultation, we discuss what is involved in the process and answer any questions you may have regarding mercury, amalgam fillings and your health.

Time is taken to explain the implications of replacing your amalgams and any possible after effects along with ways in which to support yourself during the process and maximise mercury excretion and elimination from the body.

At this visit we also formulate a personalised tailor made treatment plan for your teeth and mouth as well as providing you with a break down of fees for treatment in addition to information sheets on amalgam removal and nutritional support/detox programs you may wish to implement
