Safe Mercury Filling Removal at Marion Dental

Marion Dental is proud to be one of only four certified offices in Iowa offering safe mercury filling removal. Our advanced procedures significantly reduce mercury vapor exposure during the removal process, prioritizing your health and safety.

Old vs. New Methods of Mercury Filling Removal

In the past, removing mercury fillings involved drilling them out without adequate protection for both patients and dental teams. Today, we utilize modern techniques and precautions to minimize mercury vapors and their potential health effects.

Why Mercury Safety Matters

Mercury is a known neurotoxin that interferes with essential enzymes in the body, leading to various health issues. At Marion Dental, your well-being is our top priority. For a nominal fee, we offer a range of protective measures during mercury filling removal:

  • Rubber Dam Isolation: Seals off the work area from the rest of your mouth.
  • Enhanced Suction and Air Filtration: Reduces mercury vapor exposure.
  • Careful Dissection: Minimizes vapor release during filling removal.
  • Activated Charcoal Administration: Helps absorb any residual mercury.
  • Protective Drapes: Cover you from head to toe for maximum safety.
  • Environmentally Safe Disposal: Ensures all waste is handled responsibly.
  • Oxygen Administration: To help you breathe pure air while there is mercury vapor in the room during removal.
