The Importance of Safe Amalgam Removal

Amalgam fillings, which contain mercury, can pose potential health risks when being removed. The process of drilling out these fillings can liberate mercury vapor and fine particulates, which may be harmful to patients, dentists, and the environment. As a result, the IAOMT has developed the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) to protect patients, dental professionals, and the environment from mercury releases during amalgam filling removal.
