Mercury-Free & Mercury–Safe
At the Dental Practice of Fair Oaks Dentist Dr. Kuprienko we follow the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) technique for silver filling removal. Fair Oaks Dentist Dr. Kuprienko has taken additional training and integrated additional instrumentation to provide patients with the safest techniques available to decrease the amount of mercury vapors and mercury exposure.
A ‘silver’ amalgam filling consists of 50% mercury. When this mercury is removed it turns into a toxic vapor. We feel it is our responsibility to protect patients from these toxic vapors but utilizing the SMART technique as defined by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT).
