When removing mercury from a tooth, it’s important to remove it safely. This patient wanted to be 100% positive all the mercury was removed.
I think most dentists would tell you that the teeth in these photos would all need crowns, but with the right tech, you can do large fillings.
If you are planning on getting a mercury filling removed, you might be wondering what your dentist does to keep you safe during the procedure.
Over the years, I’ve had a handful of dentists confront me for removing amalgam (mercury fillings) by patient request.
Holistic dentistry means your dentist considers the effects of dental work on your overall health. This video reviews some of the benefits to you.
Here’s a video that shows just how well the dental air vacuum works.
Ah, the holiday season is upon us. Instead of making some specials available for the few days following Thanksgiving (Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc) we just wanted to throw a few specials out there that are good for the rest of the year!
Our new doctor, Dr. Jackie Freeman, shared this with us. Let us know if you try it! Check out some benefits Moonlight Beach Dental offers you. Not 100% happy with your current dentist? Schedule a consultation with us now.
Moonlight Beach Dental has the ability, equipment and the experience to safely remove mercury fillings. This is important since the levels of mercury vapor created by this procedure frequently exceed the safety thresholds of several jurisdictions and agencies. Not every dentist is trained to remove mercury safely. In the photos below here, the mercury filling…
In July, a study published in The Journal of Occupational Medicine and Toxicology found that drilling dental amalgam generates particulate that volatilizes significant amounts of mercury vapor generally for more than an hour after removal. The levels of mercury vapor created by this procedure frequently exceed the safety thresholds of several jurisdictions and agencies.
In other words, you really want to find a dentist trained to remove amalgam safely.
Silver fillings (also known as amalgams) release low levels of mercury vapor into the body. While the position of the American Dental Association is that amalgam is safe to use, there is increasing evidence that amalgam may not be safe at all.
People are always wowed that we can do permanent dental work, quickly, in a single visit – and at the same time address fear with sedation. And they should be! Check out this guy who cracked a tooth but he had to leave the country in 2 days. No problem.
Would you want this crown in your mouth?
Many dentists leave old fillings underneath the crown. These fillings are broken down and the reason for the crown was necessary in the first place!

Dr. Mercola is a leading name in holistic dentistry.
A few weeks ago he posted this article, which has been re-posted below.
Yesterday, I received the following email, and I wanted to share it.
It really brings home the importance of making sure your dentist follows strict safety protocols when removing mercury fillings.
There is some evidence to suggest that activated charcoal, as well as other agents, may be helpful in removing harmful toxicants, such as mercury.
The theory is that since charcoal is highly porous, and since charcoal is not digested, it can be used to safely absorb a variety of drugs and chemicals.
I recently read about a company called Pressed Juicery makes a juice product which is delivered via postal mail.
It turns out that activated charcoal in juice is a trend that has started to get momentum.
A couple small blurbs:
Meet our newest team member Luna (aka Lunatic) and see my new mask that I wear when removing mercury fillings.
An old mercury filling cracked Jessica’s tooth below the gumline.
Another emergency dentist was unable to help her, then she came to Moonlight Beach Dental.
Check out this remarkable case from beginning to end!
Yesterday I removed this mercury filling.
Sometimes, the expansion and rigidity of old, large mercury fillings like this can cause fractures that can extend into the nerve (requiring a root canal) or down the root (requiring an extraction).
A new video about mercury removal. Whether or not the normal amount of mercury vapor released by mercury fillings is significant, in any case, my primary concern about mercury fillings (amalgam) is when the teeth containing those materials break.
Today I want to talk about an antioxidant that plays a crucial role in the body, glutathione.
The role of glutathione is to essentially keep cells running smoothly, and it is used by just about every major system of the body (immune, nervous, gastrointestinal, etc).
Glutathione is also an integral part of the body’s ability to detoxify.
What’s underneath my crown? That’s a question you should definitely ask your dentist, especially if you are concerned about possible toxins and allergens that may be in the crown itself, or underneath it.
Our client Darlene referred us to an article called ‘Mercury Toxicity and How To Get It Out Of Your Body’, featured on Gwyneth Paltrow’s website, Goop.
The article discusses details sources of mercury exposure, (fish, amalgam, drinking water), the symptoms of mercury toxicity, and how to reduce exposure.
Every client that comes in is unique. We combine a variety of different techniques and treatments to create a better smile for them.
Some of our patients come in and have been insecure with their teeth for years. Others are afraid. So they’re often taken back when the entire visit goes by without pain, and they have a great smile in only a couple hours. They wonder what they were waiting for and why they didn’t do it sooner.
We’re like like dental ninjas.
This photo illustrates how a small mercury filling fracture can end up cracking your tooth. As a metal, mercury can expand and contract in different temperatures. This, along with other pressures (biting, grinding of teeth during sleep, etc) can stress the tooth such that hairline fractures can start to appear, and then can propagate through the root.
Meet Frank’s mouth. Frank’s mouth is 55 years old. Frank is a new patient that came in for mercury removal, but we just went ahead and did some other stuff. Check out the awesome.
