Review by Lily Flowers
Janet S. Stopka, DDS, PC - reviews
I’m so glad I found such a great dentist and office! I recommend them to everyone. I love that Dr. Stopka cares more about natural non-toxic methods and that she is so thorough and professional. My husband switched to Dr. Stopka as well and has been much happier with his overall dental care. We also love how friendly the front desk ladies are! Nancy & Nancy K are the best.

Chicago, IL area dentist explains the benefits of a mercury free practice

When patients visit a dentist in the Chicago, IL area, the last thing they need to worry about is the materials being used to restore the smile. Dr. Janet Stopka is a mercury-free dentist who ensures she uses only safe, biocompatible materials to repair the smile.

Why choose a mercury-free dentist?

Dr. Janet Stopka is a mercury-free dentist who offers biological care for her patients. She avoids the use of silver amalgam fillings, which are often 50 percent mercury. Mercury is harmful to the body. It has been used for many years in dental fillings, and some dentists continue to use it, even though studies show the problems it can cause. At our practice, we avoid the use of materials such as this and encourage patients to consider an alternative such as composite resin.

What are the benefits of using composite resin?

Composite resin is a material that:

  • Blends in with natural tooth enamel
  • Fills areas of tooth decay
  • Does not expand and contract with temperature changes
  • Is safe to use in the smile

When patients have areas of decay, they can visit a mercury-free dentist for treatment with composite resin.

Can patients have mercury fillings removed?

At the practice of Dr. Janet Stopka, patients can ask about mercury filling removal. Removal can be done safely by a dentist who is focused on ensuring the health of everyone present in the room at the time of replacement.
