Mercury Safe Dentistry
Janet S. Stopka, DDS, PC5
She is the best dentist I have ever been to. She does a great job removing the mercury from your teeth. I am so glad, I was introduced to her. She is a gentle and kind person.
"Mercury-free" is a common marketing term used by many dental offices today. What this term means is that the office, like ours, does not place amalgam fillings. The avoidance of mercury-laden amalgam fillings does not necessarily equate to the belief that mercury is detrimental to the health of the patient, dentist, and staff. Many mercury free dentists continue to handle amalgam, removing old fillings for replacement with newer, more durable materials. The issue here is that a mercury-free dentist will most likely use the standard protocol learned in dental school to remove this hazardous material. A "mercury-safe" dentist like Dr. Stopka recognizes the facts about amalgam:
- Standard removal with the drilling technique exposes everyone in the treatment room to mercury vapor.
- The amount of mercury that escapes during standard removal is significantly more than what is considered safe by government regulations.
- Any amount of mercury vapor is harmful to the health of everyone exposed.
- Standard protocol that does not use a separator allows unsafe amounts of mercury into the environment and into wastewater.
