Amalgam dental fillings contain about 50 percent mercury. Boris Lipovetskiy DMD is pleased to bring a healthier alternative, mercury free dentistry
and mercury safe removal methods, to patients in Fort Lauderdale.
Mercury free dentistry
Amalgam fillings are NOT placed at Boris Lipovetskiy DMD. Regardless of your level of concern with mercury, there are simply better, more attractive alternatives available
Dr. Lipovetskiy repairs cavities with a composite resin material made of BPA-free plastic and finely ground glass (for enamel-like radiance). These fillings are strong enough even for the bite force on back molars, and are very durable. The composite is color-matched to your smile, so no one will ever know you had a cavity.
Mercury safe dentistry
Each time you bite down on an amalgam filling, mercury vapor is released, inhaled, and swallowed. There is additional risk when an amalgam filling cracks, or if it is removed with traditional dentistry methods. As the public becomes informed, many patients are requesting that their amalgam fillings be removed and replaced with composite resin.
Dr. Lipovetskiy is a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. He adheres to protocols recommended by the IAOMT for safe removal of mercury. Specialized equipment, suctioning and filtration devices, and other precautions protect patients
and dental staff, and keep amalgam out of public wastewater.
