Amalgam Filling In Modern-Day Dentistry

By: Smileway Dental

Why amalgam fillings are seldom used in modern day dentistry?

1. Amalgam contains trace amounts of mercury which may not be good for our health if not handled properly
2. Amalgam mercury can be inhaled in lungs if proper precautions are not taken
3. High levels of mercury effect the brain and kidney if ingested in its original and unreacted form.
4. It requires more tooth removal for amalgam fillings to remain seated in the tooth.
5. Amalgam fillings can leak after a long time has passed since the filling is not chemically bonded to the tooth structure
6. Amalgam fillings are black in color while all others teeth are white in color so it will look unnatural.
7. Amalgam tooth can weaken your tooth through time if proper care is not provided to the teeth.
8. We recommend amalgam fillings in situations that indicate the best success for amalgam fillings since composite has better color and binds chemically to the tooth.

Here in Smileway Dental we enjoy giving patients the smile which is natural and fillings that mimic both color and form of natural teeth. In Smileway Dental Clinic USJ and Smileway Dental Clinic Setapak we take care of your smile because we believe in “Creating Smiles That Matters” in your life. Take care everyone. To know more about amalgam filling, do not hesitate to contact us and get an appointment for a consultation.

I can say from my own experience as a doctor, they are good. Appointments are kinda hard to get. Do you know why? You get what you want and what you need. Most likely you’ll leave the clinic with a smile on your face.

Dr Edwin is very patient to kids. He can slowly talk and confort the kids to prevent them from fear of removing extra teeth. And there is sticker for kids after complete it. What we like is the teeth keeper hanger for kid. It really cute.

Definitely my best dental experience with Dr.Jon Low whose by far is one of the most attentive and gentle dental doctor. His approach to dental care is immaculate and he pays the most attention to the finest detail. I’ve been a regular patient of his for the past 7 yrs alongside my entire family and we are pleased and proud to introduce and recognize him for his expertise. The entire team at Smileway Clinic is friendly and professional and overal the BEST dental clinic in Subang Jaya.
