With all the new information becoming available, it can be hard to understand the difference between a Mercury Safe practice and a Mercury Free dental practice. Many dentists have come to realize that Silver-Mercury isn’t the best material we can use to fill a tooth. As a result of this, approximately 50% of all American dentists no longer place Silver-Mercury (Amalgam) fillings. However, less than 10% of dentists practice Mercury Safe Dentistry. Dr. Anders is proud to be one of very few area dentists who practices a Mercury Safe dental philosophy. Aside from not placing Mercury fillings for over a decade, Dr. Anders has practiced the Safe Amalgam Removal Protocol set in place by the IAOMT (International Association of Oral Medicine and Toxicology) for over 5 years. Dentists who are Mercury Free, are not necessarily Mercury Safe. As a team, we are constantly working to improve the experience of our patients during the Mercury removal process. . We offer a variety of items on our Comfort Menu, designed to help put patients at ease during the Mercury Removal process.
