Dental amalgam is the filling material that is used by dentists when filling in cavities. The material is created by mixing powdered alloy and liquid mercury to create the amalgam. Then it is used to shape, prepare, and repair the cavity. While this material has been used for 150 years, and is recognized for its tough and long-lasting qualities, there are some risks. The risks involved surround the use of mercury, while it is a low amount when used for dentistry, high levels can negatively affect your body. While approved by the FDA, we still provide amalgam and mercury free options for individuals looking to avoid these risks.
