Amalgam is a dental filling material made from a mixture of metals, including silver, tin, copper, and mercury. While it has been used for decades, concerns about mercury exposure have prompted a shift towards safer options. Safely removing amalgam involves strict protocols to minimize mercury exposure during the removal process. Specialized equipment like rubber dams, high-volume suction, and air purifiers are utilized to protect both patients and staff. This ensures a holistic and minimally invasive approach to dental care, aligning with our commitment to your well-being.
Digital X-rays are a remarkable advancement in dental care. They use significantly less radiation, up to 90% less compared to traditional X-rays. This is because digital X-rays use electronic sensors instead of traditional photographic film. It’s all about harnessing technology to prioritize your safety. With these lower radiation levels, we can capture detailed images of your oral health while minimizing any potential risks. Your well-being is always at the forefront of our practice.
BPA, or bisphenol A, is a chemical often used in the production of plastics and resins, including some dental materials. We steer clear of BPA-containing dental materials due to concerns about its potential to disrupt hormones and negatively impact health. Our commitment to your well-being drives us to use BPA-free alternatives, ensuring that your dental treatments are not only effective but also safe and aligned with a holistic approach to dentistry.
Dr. Laurie prioritizes metal-free dentistry. She employs materials like composite, porcelain, and ceramic for fillings, crowns, and other restorations. These alternatives are not only aesthetically appealing but also biocompatible, minimizing the risk of adverse reactions. Dr. Laurie’s approach revolves around ensuring the safety and well-being of her patients while providing them with durable and natural-looking dental solutions.
