“We have completed our film trailer for our documentary on the harmful effects of dental mercury on patients, staff, and the environment. Our film trailer includes footage that is sure to turn heads. We are the first ever, to visualize the mercury vapor generated during polishing and removal… the vapor was so incredibly thick it turn the whole screen black. So be sure to watch for the footage as it is quite dramatic. As many of you know the exposure from these routine dental procedures are thousands of times higher than safety levels and violate occupational safety regulations and exceed air levels at which people are relocated from their residences.”
Team Mercury Exposure
Mercury Free Dentistry In Thibodaux, LA
You can read about various warnings related to the excess mercury levels in fish or seafood that we consume, however, the largest threat of mercury to your health is likely lurking in your mouth! It is estimated that more than 85% of Americans have at least one filling that is comprised of amalgam, a mercury and silver combination that has been used since the late 1800’s to repair decaying teeth. Most amalgam fillings contain 40-50% mercury which is quite high.
What’s Different About Our Dental Treatments?
What sets Dr. Michael F. LeBlanc apart from traditional dentists, is the fact that all dental fillings used by our practice are formulated from a safe resin that contains epoxy materials. The mercury-free fillings are white, so they can be matched to the shade of your teeth. Porcelain fillings or crowns can also be used. In addition to the apparent health benefits of mercury free dentistry, new studies show the resin fillings are more cost effective and gentler on the environment as opposed to dental mercury, the byproducts of which contribute to soil and water contamination.
