Mercury Free Dentistry in Rotherham, South YorkshireAll Fountain Health dental practices (Yorkshire Sedation, Dental, Cosmetic and Implant Clinic Rotherham, Millhouses Dental Cosmetic and Implant Clinic Sheffield and Fountain Dental, Cosmetic and Implant Clinic Doncaster) all offer 100% mercury free dentistry. We use absolutely no products containing mercury in the practice, and we also offer safe amalgam removal (mercury containing filling) for you safety and confidence.

As a member of the “Mercury Free Dentistry Society”, we know that there has been some discussion regarding the safety of mercury fillings. At Yorkshire Sedation, Dental, Cosmetic and Implant Clinic Rotherham, we are able to appraise your case with X-rays and intra-oral video camera views. A micro-ammeter can be used to measure and record the relative degree of corrosion and/or galvanic activity in the old amalgam restorations (metal fillings).  We can then remove mercury containing fillings following strict health guidelines.

Mercury Removal Protocol

Old mercury fillings can be safely removed under carefully controlled circumstances and then replaced with mercury-free alternatives. To prevent inhalation of vapours/ aerosols a nose piece will be used to allow you to breathe positive pressure pure oxygen (O2) OR a sedative mixture (O2 & N2O) adjusted to your preferred levels.

We also consider it essential to protect your eyes (with protective eyewear) and nose. We therefore utilise rubber dam protection - (a sheet of latex surrounding the tooth, isolating it from the rest of the mouth) during amalgam removal. We also use a high speed air rotor, with water on maximum and suitable suction to remove the amalgam material efficiently and avoid ingestion (swallowing).

After the safe removal of the amalgam fillings, there are a number of ways to re-restore teeth. The treatment choice depends on each case although metal-free materials are available for most restorative procedures including Fillings, Inlays, Onlays, Veneers.

Crowns and Bridgework

In some circumstances gold fillings can be considered due to the great track record and biocompatibility of gold. We even offer partial dentures with gold framework / clasps to reduce the problem of metal sensitivity.
