Enjoy mercury-free dentistry at Gomez Family Dentistry
Choosing a mercury-free dentist is important for your health and well-being. Mercury, also known as silver amalgam, is a common material used in dental fillings and other restorative treatments to repair cavities and broken teeth. While the substance has been used in dentistry for centuries, recent studies have raised concerns about its potential toxic effects on the body when exposed to it over time. Drs. Gina and Christopher Gomez of Gomez Family Dentistry in Pensacola, Florida, are well aware of the harm that mercury can cause and hence provide mercury-free dental fillings and amalgam-free dentistry for all patients.
How is mercury harmful to the human body?
Mercury can be released into the bloodstream through daily activities such as eating or drinking hot liquids, which can cause long-term damage to the organs with excessive exposure. In addition, amalgam fillings are not esthetically pleasing due to their prominent color.
What alternatives are available?
When choosing to go with a mercury-free dental team such as Drs. Gina and Christopher Gomez, you can be sure that your dental treatments are free from the potential health risks associated with mercury exposure. Our team at Gomez Family Dentistry in Pensacola, Florida, uses safer and more esthetically pleasing alternatives, such as composite fillings, which are less likely to cause any damage or harm to the body.
