Our complete dentists services
Each room where mercury fillings are removed has adequate filtration in place, capable of removing mercury vapor and amalgam particles generated during the removal of one or more mercury fillings. An amalgam separator is properly installed, utilized, and maintained to collect mercury amalgam waste so that it is not released into the effluent from the dental office.
Non-latex nitrile gloves are used by the dentist and all dental personnel in the room. Face shields and hair/head coverings are used by the dentist and all dental personnel in the room. A properly-sealed, respiratory grade mask rated to capture mercury is worn by the dentist and all dental personnel in the room. In order to protect the patient’s skin and clothing, a full-body, impermeable barrier, as well as a full head/face/neck barrier under/around the dam, is used.
