Safe Removal of Mercury Fillings in Berkeley CA Area

Drs. Ruhi Sangha and Praj Kamat of Transcendentist in Berkeley, California, are available to provide patients with a wide range of dental solutions, including the safe removal of mercury fillings. Dr. Ruhi Sangha is a member of the IAOMT, or the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, which educates both dentists and dental clients about the dangers of mercury fillings and promotes safer, more natural alternatives.

She has extensive experience with removing mercury fillings and replacing them with biocompatible materials that are better for oral health and one’s overall wellness. Silver amalgam fillings, commonly used to treat cavities, have a high mercury content that can increase one’s risk of developing mercury toxicity.

Why should I visit an IAOMT-certified dentist for the removal of old fillings?

IAOMT-certified dentists such as Dr. Ruhi Sangha have undergone specialized training and education on the safe removal of mercury fillings. They are well-versed in the proper techniques and protocols to minimize exposure to harmful mercury vapors during removal. This is critical because improper removal of mercury fillings can release toxic levels of mercury into the body, causing a wide range of unique medical and health issues. Many clients consider removal and replacement for a more aesthetic alternative as well.

What can be done about cavities if silver amalgam fillings are removed?

At Transcendentist of Berkeley, California, we understand the importance of using both safe and biocompatible materials for dental procedures. This is why we offer a variety of options for fillings, including composite resin, ceramics, and glass ionomers. These materials not only look more natural but also do not release harmful toxins into the body.

Furthermore, we believe in providing holistic dental care, which means treating the entire body, not just the mouth. This includes recommending a healthy diet and good oral hygiene practices to prevent these cavities from forming in the first place.
