Procedure For SMART Amalgam Filling Removal

Our SMART amalgam filling removal procedure involves several safety protocols to ensure that neither the dentist nor the patients are kept away from potential danger from the fumes of the mercury. During our procedure, the patient will be sealed off using barriers to protect them. Our team of specialized dentists also puts on a full-body suit to protect them from fumes. 

What’s more, our specialist extensively analyses your mouth during our initial examination and scrutinizes amalgam fillings’ effect on your teeth. We will ask you to rinse with activated charcoal since it helps to make the procedure more effective. Also, our team will give you protective equipment, such as hair covering, face barriers, and goggles. 

Furthermore, our dental experts will put a rubber dam on the teeth to seclude the teeth with the amalgam fillings. We usually use an aerosol vacuum for this technique. We then meticulously remove the fillings using the chunking technique, during which we use a regular supply of water through a jet and high-speed suction to take out the debris. 

Once the visible amalgam has been taken out, the residue amalgam will be removed from the dentin tubules using a laser. After we have finished the procedure, we ask you to rinse your mouth properly.
