Fill out this form if you would like to get the free course as well as a call/text/email back from my office. We can answer your questions and set you up with either a free xray evaluation where you email in all your xrays for a free evaluation or have you come in to see us in order to get a Full Mouth Series of Xrays and photography done on our XTG system (ultra-low radiation) for $100. This comes with a free phone exam within approximately 1 week where Brandon will go over the results of my examination of your xrays and photos.
Dental amalgam is a mixture of metals, containing up to 50 percent mercury, along with silver, tin, copper, and additional trace metals. For over 150 years, amalgam has been used in dental fillings.
In recent years, there has been a growing concern about the toxicity of amalgam fillings and the potential effects it has on the body due to mercury. At the office of Dr. Paul O’Malley DDS, we do not use amalgam fillings, opting instead for biocompatible composite resin fillings. This safe material is durable, aesthetically pleasing, and free of harmful metals like mercury. Additionally, we offer the safe removal of existing mercury fillings for patients who need to have them removed.
Dental amalgam fillings can release toxic mercury vapors during such tasks as biting or chewing. Mercury vapor exposure has been linked to an increase in risk for some medical conditions.
We don’t recommend the removal of amalgam fillings that are still in good condition. If there is no decay around the filling, it’s best to leave it in place. Removing amalgam fillings can slightly compromise healthy tooth structure and may unnecessarily expose patients to mercury vapors.
If you have a failing amalgam filling, it can pose risks including: mercury vapor exposure, recurrent tooth decay, or tooth fracture. For patients who need amalgam filling removal, we follow the strict protocol of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. This helps to ensure that the patient and staff are protected against harmful mercury exposure.
When it comes to your health and wellness, we want to be your partner. Whether it’s the safe removal of amalgam fillings, biomimetic restorations, or full mouth reconstruction, we are here to help. If you are in the Encino area, call us today at (818) 616-8838.
It doesn’t cost a dime and will protect you from bad dentistry. The videos come one per day for a series of days so if you want all the videos in a single email, please either call, text or email Brandon and he will send it all to you.
The educational process that we do with all of our patients is the “secret sauce” that helps me get you the best possible restorations and also helps to stabilize your mouth so you don’t need more work in the future. My free Holistic Dental Course is how we achieve that, one-for-one. Please sign up for that right away. We require all new patients to go through the free course prior to getting their full in-person exam wit me. If you would like a list of the free course videos so that you can move through them faster, simply call, email or text in and Brandon can send that to you.
