Dental Wellbeing has been a non-amalgam practice since our
inception in 1992. We have had extensive experience and training
since that time in using alternative filling materials and
techniques. Current materials take a lot of time and skill
to place correctly but are far superior and more bio-compatible
than anything available in the past.
Even though we do not
place amalgam in teeth we still have to replace amalgam
fillings many times a day which presents a health risk to
team as well as the patient.
At Dental Wellbeing we have developed a very strict protocol
for handling any material containing mercury and have many
measures in place to eliminate exposure to mercury particles
or vapour. Many of our patients are referred by health
care practitioners such as naturopaths for complete replacement
of their amalgams.
As these patients' immune system can
quite depressed or compromised, they often follow a
vitamin supplementation and detoxification program prior
during their treatment. This program is tailored to their
health condition by their health practitioner.
the special needs of these patients and have developed
and adopted a system to care for them. If you are considering
amalgam removal and would like a program, we can
to a health care provider who will tailor one for you.
