Mercury Free Practice
Updated: Feb 19
Did you know that approximately one in three adults have tooth decay?*
Fillings are usually needed when an un-natural cavity forms on the tooth due to a build up of plaque which causes tooth decay. Fillings are used to fill the cavity and to help make it stronger to prevent any further damage to the tooth.
While traditionally amalgam fillings were used for tooth cavities, there are now health concerns of the level of mercury content that consists within them. For health reasons, we are proud to be a mercury free dentist but also this can be appealing to patients for cosmetic dentistry reasons; the fillings are a natural tooth colour and much less visible.
Regularly seeing the Dentist and Hygienist can dramatically improve your dental health and prevent the need for fillings. It's recommended to brush your teeth twice a day, use interdental brushing and to use a fluoride mouthwash and toothpaste. Interdental brushing helps to remove trapped food between the teeth which can cause a cavity, it's best to do this before using your toothbrush.
