SMART/Mercury-Amalgam Filling Removal
SMART stands for “Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique, and it is the standard we use when removing mercury fillings. Because mercury is harmful to both humans and the environment, we can use the SMART protocol to remove old silver amalgam fillings in the safest possible way. Developed by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), SMART requires various steps we will follow before using appropriate materials to fill your tooth and ensure a healthier smile.
We employ the use of ozone during various procedures, to disinfect or decontaminate an area. We do not use ozone for some procedures. To find out more, please give us a call.
At Natural Dental Services, you will not find BPA (Bisphenol A) materials in our dental office. As hormone disruptors, they’re often found in dental sealants and other plastic composites. Because studies have found BPA can cause physical and neurological harm, Dr. Keanna uses only fillings, sealants, and other products that are free of any BPA. This ensures you remain safe while receiving preventive, cosmetic, or restorative treatment.
Before undergoing restorative dental work, we recommend bio-compatibility testing. This determines the type of dental materials that are safe to use when preparing for a specific method of treatment. Whether completed at a doctor’s office or laboratory, you will have blood drawn and sent off for analysis. Based on the findings as to whether you have an immune response to various products and materials, we can identify which materials are best for your restorative care.
Gluten-Free Accommodating Dentistry
If you have a gluten intolerance, you’ll be pleased to learn we are a gluten-free dental office. What this means is we do not use polishing pastes, topical anesthetics, or other products that might contain gluten. Instead, we choose products that are safe for all patients and will not elicit an allergic response.
Fluoride & Aluminum-Free Dental Products
While many dental offices offer fluoride treatments and aluminum dental products, you will not find these here in our Albuquerque dental office. Although a natural mineral, fluoride exposure can impact a person’s physical and neurological behaviors as well as cause dental fluorosis, which permanently damages and discolors tooth enamel. Instead, we use other natural methods.
