Review by Karrie L.
Janet S. Stopka, DDS, PC - reviews
Thank you thank you. I love this practice. I'm so thankful for Dr. Stopka and her expertise. There are not many mercury free dentists in the south suburbs. The entire staff has been great. I find Nancy to be one of the friendliest people to work a front desk in my life. Always a pleasure to call the office. And Gail was wonderful with our 6 and 4 year olds for their first appointments. She explained everything she was going to do first and the boys had a great time in the chair. Randi was also so patient as my boys picked out a toy from the Treasure Chest (decisions, decisions, you know...).

I love Dr. Stopka's passion for her clients health and wellness. She is not your run of the mill the best possible way. I am so happy we found you and so thankful that you are following your soul's purpose, Dr. Stopka! ♡

Burr Ridge, IL area dentist offers safe removal of mercury and replacement with safe materials

The use of mercury safe dentistry is becoming more and more important over the years as patients in and around the Burr Ridge, IL area are educated on how silver amalgam fillings can negatively impact their overall health and wellness. Dr. Janet S. Stopka DDS, PC is a holistic dentist who fully understands the biology behind the mouth and the body. In fact, she is an active supporter of the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicity) and continually studies the link between the oral cavity and medical conditions throughout the body. This oral-systemic connection can have a dramatic impact on one’s health.
Because of the many dental and health problems associated with mercury fillings (often called silver amalgam fillings), she is proud to provide safe mercury removal. Mercury removal must be done in a certain manner to reduce exposure to the mercury vapors that can escape when the fillings are being broken up and taken out of the tooth. Janet S. Stopka DDS, PC follows the protocols set forth by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology to ensure the safety of all who are in the treatment room during removal.
After the safe removal of mercury, these fillings are replaced with safe materials. Our Burr Ridge, IL practice encourages patients to consider the placement of composite resin fillings when replacing their silver amalgam fillings. Composite resin filling is easy to place, matches the color of the natural tooth enamel, and is not affected by temperature changes as silver amalgam fillings are. This ensures a better fit, more safety, and a more aesthetic replacement option. The entire process, from removal to replacement, can be done in just one appointment at the request of the patient and can reduce their risks of mercury toxicity and conditions linked to silver amalgam fillings within the smile.
If you live in or around the Burr Ridge, IL area and want to speak with a biological dentist such as Dr. Janet S. Stopka DDS, PC who has your health and best interests in mind, contact her today!
