Mercury Safe - Holistic Dentistry
Mercury-safe dentistry delivers safety to patients and the environment in Sebastopol dental practiceAt Whole Health Dentistry, mercury-safe dentistry is synonymous with mercury-free dentistry. In choosing to deliver the safest experience for our patients, we use only mercury-free products and we have protocol in place to remove and dispose of mercury-laden amalgam safely. Dr. Silvano Senn and his staff are concerned with the overall effects of treatments on the health of their patients and believe in protecting our environment from harmful impacts.
While some dental providers still choose to use amalgam fillings, and they are deemed safe by the ADA and some other associations at this time, we choose to avoid the substance entirely. We are aware of video research that shows mercury vapors being released from these type of fillings, which allows absorption into the patient’s bloodstream. This has the potential for many harmful effects on patient health – a risk that we are not willing to take. As mercury exposure is known to be harmful and there are limits placed on its levels in seafood and on releasing into the environment, we see no need for use of these materials. Besides these health concerns, we have found composite fillings are more aesthetically pleasing, as well as performing closely to the makeup of a natural tooth in dental applications.

Dr. Senn and the qualified staff at Whole Health Dentistry understand and care for each patient as a unique individual.
