Amalgam removal

What is amalgam?

Amalgam has been used as the material of dental fillings for more than 100 years. It consists of a mix of metals where one of them is mercury. The proportions vary, but an exampel of an alloy could be 25% of cobber, 42% of silver, 29% of tin and 4% of mercury. The material is very strong, lasts for many years and is relatively inexpensive for the patient. Despite the many advantages of the material, a decreasing number of dentists use it because of the environmental impact of mercury.

Why amalgam removal?

Amalgam fillings are not the nicest fillings to have. They are dark, very visible, and they can be a burden for the tooth. Some patients get allergic reactions from amalgam, and some people think that an amalgam sanitation can benefit their general health. Caries sometimes develop on the edge of old fillings which makes a sanitation of the old fillings necessary.

Advantages of an amalgam removal

  • The teeth look nicer with fillings of porcelain or plastic
  • Reduced risk of allergic reactions
  • Reduced sensitivity toward temperature changes.
