Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART)
Amalgam restorations (silver fillings) contain approximately 50% mercury in combination with silver, tin and copper. Common activities such as chewing gum, eating, tooth brushing and tooth grinding can dramatically increase the release of mercury vapor. The mercury vapor released from your amalgam fillings accumulates in your body.
As an Accredited Member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), Dr. Hamel follows their strict protocol for amalgam removal. This protocol limits mercury exposure to his patient, his team, and our environment.
