In Dentistry, there is an effort to find biocompatible materials to reduce the potential for toxicity. Silver Mercury “Amalgam” fillings are avoided due to toxicity concerns. Amalgam removal and replacement with natural-looking bonded materials is the standard.
Testing for mercury levels in the body may also be performed according to the Huggins Protocol.
BEFORE: Old Mercury fillings have cracked and leaking edges. The natural tooth structure is weakened by the”Wedge” effect of the filling on the tooth.
AFTER: New esthetic materials are strongly bonded to the tooth. The resulting restoration restores not just function and beauty, but returns most of the original strength of the tooth.
