Safe Amalgam Removal Brisbane

Are you looking for a quality dentist who provides safe amalgam removal in Brisbane? Skye Dental is your one stop service!

Did you know that amalgam fillings have been linked to causing cracked teeth? Due to the dangers associated with amalgam fillings, composites or white fillings are now the preferred option used by majority of dentists.

At Skye Dental, we use specially designed equipment and barriers to safely remove mercury amalgam fillings. We can also provide nasally delivered oxygen to reduce exposure to mercury vapour, if desired. As a practice that values safety and well-being above all else, you can rest assured that you’ll be in safe hands when you choose Skye Dental for safe amalgam removal in Brisbane.

Removing your amalgam fillings can have a range of health benefits, including:

  • Increased energy
  • Improved vision
  • Improved blood pressure
  • Reduced irritability, dizziness and bloating

Fillings are necessary when you have developed a cavity, a piece of tooth has broken, or an existing filling requires replacement. At Skye Dental, we only place white tooth-coloured materials to restore your teeth, making the fillings practically undetectable. Composite resin is reliable, durable and visually pleasing in comparison to old amalgam material.

For larger restorations and replacement of big, old amalgam fillings, composite resin is unlikely to be a sufficient long-term option. In these cases porcelain (inlay/onlay) are the ideal course option of treatment. Preventative six monthly check-ups are the best way to avoid the need for fillings. By detecting tooth decay early, we can avoid more extensive treatment. Tooth decay doesn’t hurt, but once it’s present, it only gets bigger.
