Mercury in dentistry

For centuries, the goal of dental care has been to solve problems efficiently and quickly. In the case of amalgam dental fillings, this solution was popular due to its low cost compared to the use of gold. At the time, more than 180 years ago, the inherent dangers of mercury had yet to be confirmed. Therefore, amalgam became one of the most widely used dental materials of our time. Though it is still in use today, even after mercury has been eliminated from the ingredient list of many consumer products, dental amalgam seems to be on its way out. Recently, several countries signed the United Nations Minamata Treaty on Mercury, which has been composed to eliminate the use of industrial mercury altogether, including in dentistry.

What is wrong with mercury?

Mercury is natural, but it is also dangerous. In fact, it is recognized for its extreme toxicity, which is why we no longer see conventional mercury thermometers being sold. Even when this substance is “contained” within dental amalgam, it can affect tissues all over the body. The process is simple. When we chew, friction creates heat. When mercury within a dental filling is heated, vapors are emitted from the tooth. When mercury vapors are released, they can be inhaled into the lungs or enter the blood through tissue absorption. Researchers continually conduct studies into the effects of ongoing exposure to mercury from various sources.

Mercury-free alternatives

When you visit Sacramento Natural Dentistry, you can feel good about repairs made with mercury-free, BPA-free dental fillings. The resin fillings that are created in the biocompatible dental office look just like natural enamel, which means they will not affect the appearance of your smile. Mercury free and metal free composite resin restorations are also extremely durable and kind to the natural structure of the teeth they repair.

Our team is committed to whole-body health, we are proud to provide mercury-free, mercury-safe care to you and your family.

I wish there were (6) stars, but I'll have to settle with (5). I began going to Sac Natural Dentistry over 2-years ago because I was tired of trying to explain to all my dental practitioners that fluoride is bad. It should be a crime to use fluoride and mercury fillings - how is this still promoted?!! When I went to SND I was immediately impressed with the knowledge base of everyone I met. Not only that, but everyone there is so happy. It's really nice to be around happy people. It actually makes me want to go to the Dentist - seriously. I've never had that desire before - not even close. Then I met Darryl Azouz DDS. He is a genuine, good person. He actually apologies (continuously) when he's working on you if he thinks he might have hurt you - true compassion. But its his depth of knowledge that impressed me the most. He's constantly traveling around the globe to attend training on the latest methods. I told him he should paper the entire waiting room with all his certifications. I'm grateful to have found this Dentist and his crew. I never imagined I'd look forward to going to the Dentist (did I say that out loud??)

Victoria cleaned my teeth today and helped me to learn how to properly brush my teeth. I won’t say how old I am that I had to relearn! She did a great job and is a wonderful hygiene person. Thus office is super friendly and I’ve had many great services from them over the past two years. I love that they use ozone water too. You will love coming to the dentist!

I used to be the poster child for *scared of dentist.* But I had some growing concerns and I knew I wanted to see a holistic / biological dentist. I found Sacramento Natural Dentistry. Dr. Azouz and his entire team took such good care of me; they were empathetic and straightforward. I was at ease the entire time. My only regret was waiting so long to call for my appointment! I’m so happy to now have a plan for addressing some big needs in my dental health with a team that I trust. I am now confident (and no longer sweaty-palmed) thinking about my visits!

Dr. Azouz is amazing. I had multiple dental issues that I wanted taken care of by a SMART Certified dentist. The work he has done and is still doing has been perfect, far beyond my expectations. He’s very knowledgeable, professional and friendly and his entire staff is also wonderful, friendly and efficient!
