Mercury-Free Fillings in Westchester County, NY

The Future of Healthy Dentistry

Mercury is a known neurotoxin — it is poisonous and even deadly to the human body. However, mercury has been a common ingredient in metal amalgam fillings and dental restorations for over 150 years. At The Center For Holistic Dentistry, we’ve been practicing mercury-free dentistry since 1983, and only offer mercury-free fillings in Westchester County, NY.

Mercury-Free Fillings Are Toxin-Free

We have studied with the world’s leading experts over the years to provide you with the best care possible. Most recently, our study with Thomas Rau, MD of the Paracelsus Clinic in Switzerland and other leading integrative physicians recognize mercury from dental fillings as a major contributor to the body burden of heavy metals. This is a common denominator in the development of chronic degenerative disease.

Mercury amalgam fillings may fail due to wear and tear, develop decay around them, or need to be removed due to the medical diagnosis of mercury toxicity. You may even choose to have yours removed because you don’t like the way they look or are concerned about the risks of having them in your teeth.

Our dentist, Dr. Lerner, does not diagnose mercury toxicity. The determination of mercury toxicity requires testing and diagnosis by a medical physician. If you do not have a physician knowledgeable in the diagnosis and treatment of heavy metal toxicity, we will be happy to refer you to one.

Our Safety Protocols

Mercury is released as a vapor. In order to protect you (as well as ourselves) during the process of mercury filling removal, we use specially developed protocols to minimize your risk of exposure. These protocols were developed by the IAOMT, an international organization of dentists, physicians, and scientists dedicated to research and education about allergies and toxicities associated with commonly used dental materials, such as mercury.

There are other metals that have commonly been used in crowns, such as palladium and nickel, which are known to stress the immune system. Even titanium used in dental implants have been known to trigger allergic reactions in some sensitive patients. For that reason, we screen all materials we use in your care to ensure they are safe for you.

Protection from Aerosols

We provide you with a mask to cover your nose to avoid breathing in the aerosols generated when mercury fillings are removed. We will place a vinyl sheet (rubber dam) on the teeth we are treating to isolate them from the rest of your mouth to keep you from swallowing mercury-filling dust.

A high-speed vacuum will be used to suction off debris generated by the old fillings, and another vacuum (IQ Air) will pull away the aerosol and mercury vapor generated as the fillings are removed. The IQ Air also filters the mercury and other toxins out of the air. Disposable surgical drapes will be placed over your body to avoid contamination of your skin and clothing.

When you are undergoing mercury amalgam filling removal, please follow the guidelines given to you by our staff to prepare yourself for removal. You can view a copy here.

"Excellent experience during my initial consultation. The most complete examination I have ever had by a dentist, including full body muscle testing. This testing uncovered major alignment issues with my jaw which has been causing a lifetime of misalignment throughout the rest of my body. Dr. Lerner and his staff are outside the box thinkers and I am very happy I have found them."
