Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) is a technique made by the IAOMT protocol.
The patient rinses with activated charcoal before the procedure starts. A dental dam is used for isolation of the tooth and to avoid contact of mercury particles with the surrounding oral tissues. Protective gowns & eyewear for the patient.
Nasal mask to deliver oxygen and to avoid inhalation of any mercury vapors. A saliva ejector is to be placed under the dental dam to reduce mercury exposure to the patient. Using copious amounts of water for irrigation, to reduce heat.
A conventional high-speed evacuation device to capture mercury particles that are discharged. Amalgam removal in larger chunks by sectioning them
Thorough rinsing of patients’ mouth with water & Charcoal once the removal is done.
In The Operatory
A mercury filter that separates & collects particles to avoid releasing them in the environment. In-office air purifiers to be installed for the removal of mercury particles in the environment.
Amalgam separator for proper collection of mercury waste. Adequate high- volume air filtration system in the operatory. Check our SMART facilities.
For the SMART dentist & staff– Protective gowns, Sterile non-latex gloves, face protection gear, properly sealed masks providing oxygen and covers are mandatory.
Holistic Dentistry Procedure
Our Holistic Dentistry system meets all the needs that may arise: First, all the problems of the patient are studied in-depth, both in the oral cavity and in the rest of the organism.
Once the causes are found, solutions can be established. In America Dental we only use biocompatible materials and techniques. Dental treatments are performed in a way that there are none physical changes that affect the body.
For example, it is done through the use of compatible biological materials that are previously tested on the person. In addition to studying your case, we will make a diagnosis and a complete treatment plan.
Holistic & Biological Dentistry
Utilizing the available scientific evidence, the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) has developed extensive safety recommendations for the removal of existing dental mercury amalgam fillings, including detailed protective measures that are to be utilized for the procedure.
The IAOMT’s recommendations supplement conventional safety protocol like the use of masks, water irrigation, and high volume suction with a number of additional protective measures.
