How do we remove Amalgam Fillings?
There are many different protocols for the safe removal of amalgam fillings at our Edmonds holistic dental office and there is no one “right” way. These protocols range from the extreme (dentist wears a HazMat suit with treatment performed in a special positive air flow sealed room) to less “dramatic”, more moderate ways to remove fillings.
We use a specially designed high volume suction & filtration system for removal of amalgam fillings. It pulls the mercury vapor and aerosol away from the patient and traps the vaporized particles of mercury in the HEPA filter.
In most cases we use our Level I protocol to remove fillings in our Edmonds office, which involves:
- Rubber dam isolation to protect you from ingesting any amalgam particles
- High volume water spray to minimize the airborne particulate
- High volume suction to remove the waste, particulate, and vapor
Our practice uses only tooth-colored filling material (composite resin and porcelain) to replace unsightly silver/mercury amalgam fillings.
In addition to the above, our Level II mercury fillings removal protocol involves:
- Placement of an alternate air supply mask over your nose during the removal process
- Use of a disposable face cover
- Use of an additional external suction/filtration system
- Our Level III protocol includes all of the above plus the incorporation of additional precautions and/or treatments as your physician may deem appropriate.

After we remove your amalgam filling, we will apply a safer, more suitable material for your filling.
