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.

Burr Ridge, IL, Dentist Talks to Patients About Safe Mercury Removal and the Health Implications of Mercury

Many dental offices today employ mercury-free procedures. Patients are becoming increasingly aware of the negative results that have come out of many dental research projects involving mercury. Mercury is a neurotoxin and can lead to autoimmune disease, chronic illness, and mental disorders. Dr. Janet Stopka’s practice Janet S. Stopka DDS, PC. is mercury-free. She also provides safe mercury removal to patients in the Burr Ridge, IL area. While many dentists have moved away from mercury amalgam fillings, it was not that long ago that dentists widely used this form of filling material. Dr. Stopka’s goal is the safe removal of this harmful mercury and to replace it with biocompatible materials. Mercury removal as performed by Dr. Stopka is entirely safe, but, understandably, patients may have questions and concerns about the process.

Mercury Removal

When patients are good candidates for mercury removal, it is a common concern about removing them. When the removal process is less than perfect, it can result in mercury amalgam vaporizing and entering the bloodstream. Dr. Stopka takes extra precautions to ensure that the patient and staff in the room at the time of mercury removal are completely safe. That is accomplished through removal practices to ensure any vapor is immediately carried away.
