Cavity detected? Turn to a mercury-safe dentist in Austin.

Dr E. Griffin Cole Providing Mercury Safe Dentistry

That moment when the dentist confirms that you have a cavity can be disappointing and a bit scary, even for adults. Although many adults have had cavities filled before, they may not know that they have a choice about which kind of material is used to fill the cavity.

In the history of the dental practice, metal or amalgam fillings have been most common. The metal fillings were thought to not only be effective, but also long-lasting. However, in recent years, the safety of metal fillings has been questioned because of their mercury content. In recent years studies have shown that high levels of mercury have been linked to various medical conditions including diabetes, kidney disorders, breakdowns of the immune system, and brain problems. Because of the potential risk, Dr. Griffin Cole, DDS, NMD, offers fillings made out of composite material which does not include mercury.

Mercury safe fillings offer several advantages over their metal competitors, including:

  • Aesthetics. Composite fillings are made to match the color of the teeth. If you have metal fillings you likely know exactly where the fillings are because they are silver or dark in color. Instead, composite fillings blend in with the natural tooth color, making the fillings nearly invisible.
  • Durability. Metal-free fillings are made to be strong and durable. With proper dental care, including daily brushing and flossing, regular maintenance visits, the composite filling can last many years.
  • Safety. Composite fillings are made of materials that are safe to patients, giving them peace of mind about their overall health and wellness.

If you have a cavity, or find out that you have a cavity in the future, ask Dr. Cole or a member of his team about mercury-safe fillings. Further, if you’re concerned about health risks of your current metal fillings, talk to Dr. Cole about how they can be removed without further risk to your health. Dr. Cole is trained and experienced in safely removing metal fillings adhering to standards to keep the patient, his team, and the environment safe.
