The Dangers of Mercury Exposure During Removal of Amalgam
With safe mercury removal
on the Upper East Side, Dr. Curatola can prevent the risks associated with metal filling replacement, which include:
- Ingesting mercury particles: cutting into a metal filling can create small particles that may be contaminated with mercury. These can be swallowed during the procedure and circulate into the bloodstream.
- Breathing mercury vapors: mercury vapors can be emitted when the metal comes into contact with a dental bur, in the same manner that mercury vapor is released when you chew or grind your teeth. They may be breathed into the lungs and absorbed into the body.
