What is the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART)?
At Champions for Oral Health, we understand the importance of providing comprehensive dental solutions that prioritize the well-being and confidence of our patients. As part of our commitment to enhancing oral health, we offer the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART).
SMART is a specialized procedure designed to safely remove amalgam fillings containing mercury. We recognize that many patients are concerned about the potential health risks associated with mercury exposure, and our SMART technique ensures a safe and effective removal process.
By following strict protocols established by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), our highly trained dental professionals prioritize your safety and well-being throughout the entire SMART procedure. These protocols include:
- Utilizing a rubber dam to isolate the treatment area and prevent any mercury particles from being ingested or inhaled.
- Administering supplemental oxygen to ensure optimal air quality and reduce the risk of mercury vapor inhalation.
- Implementing high-volume suction and filtration systems to capture any mercury particles and prevent their release into the environment.
- Employing specific cutting techniques and utilizing specialized tools to minimize the amount of drilling required, further reducing the potential for mercury exposure.
By choosing our SMART service, you can have peace of mind knowing that your dental treatment is conducted with the highest level of care and safety.
