When bacteria in the mouth digest starch and sugar particles, they secrete acids that can begin eating away at your tooth enamel, causing a cavity. If you have a cavity, a filling may be needed to prevent further tooth decay. In the past, silver fillings were popular, and you might even have a few in your mouth. However, you probably aren’t aware that these fillings have a substantial amount of mercury in them (about 50%). The combination of metals (silver, mercury, copper, etc) is technically called an amalgam.
Wrigleyville Dental is your mercury-free dentist in Chicago. Not only are we one of the only offices certified in the SMART safe mercury amalgam removal protocol, we also specialize in placing mercury-free, metal-free, and biocompatible fillings. We make sure our fillings are BPA Free and safe for you and your family.
