It is no secret that studies have shown the negative effects of silver amalgam fillings. Dr. France Chevalier of Ottawa does not place silver amalgam fillings because of the many concerns she has regarding their biocompatibility. Silver amalgam fillings are made of 50 per cent mercury. Mercury is known as a material that can release vapors when heated which can be released into the bloodstream resulting in increased risks for kidney disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and a list of many other medical concerns.
By avoiding the placement of silver amalgam fillings, patients can reduce their risks. However, traditional dentists have been using silver amalgam fillings for years, and patients who currently have them in their mouth may consider removal. For safe and effective removal, patients in the Ottawa area should visit the mercury safe dental practice of Dr. France Chevalier. She provides quality care for patients who are interested in replacing their amalgam fillings with composite resin fillings, which are safer and much more aesthetic within the smile.
