Research published by the peer-reviewed Journal of Occupational Medicine and Toxicology (JOMT) further validates the known fact that silver filling removal performed without proper safety measures can greatly expose both patients and dental personnel to toxic mercury levels. According to Michael Rehme, DDS, NMD, the president of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), amalgam fillings contain approximately 50 percent mercury, a known neurotoxin. Even standard dental practices, such as routine tooth polishing and amalgam filling replacement, can release harmful mercury vapor and filling particles that can be inhaled and ingested.
At the Laguna Hills Center for Sleep Apnea & CPAP Intolerance, Dr. Angham (Ann) Abdulla, DDS is dedicated to applying the best practices in oral healthcare based on a comprehensive, holistic approach to dentistry. She follows the IAOMT’s safe mercury removal technique (SMART) to remove silver amalgam fillings, which greatly reduces mercury exposure during the removal process.
