amalgam removal & tooth-coloured fillings

Safe amalgam removal & tooth-coloured filling (from £165 per tooth)
The Clinic was the first mercury-free practice in Brighton...

Often, patients visit The Clinic because they are concerned about the possible health risks posed by unsightly mercury fillings. The World Health Organisation has stated that there is no safe dose of mercury, and its use has been abolished completely in many EU countries.

Jeff is a member of the British Society for Mercury Free Dentistry and the IAOMT. Accordingly, he observes the recommended protocols when removing old mercury fillings and replacing them with non-toxic, tooth-coloured materials. He uses rubber dam, a separate air supply and high volume suction at all times. Of course, many patients are driven by cosmetic concerns, in which case the benefits of amalgam removal are obvious.

Mercury amalgam removal protocol
  • We prevent mercury inhalation by providing an oxygen mask
  • We place a rubber dam barrier around the tooth to ensure no mercury is swallowed
  • We remove the filling carefully to minimise mercury 'dust'
  • We use powerful ('high volume') suction at all times
  • We use a 'scavenger' to keep the air in the surgery clean throughout

    Excellent professional service.  I had seven amalgam fillings removed with no pain or discomfort.  I’m now completely amalgam-free and my teeth and smile haven’t looked this good since I was a child.  Thank you.

    I am delighted with Jeff and Rosie’s work.  I like how Jeff constantly asks if I am ok, which puts me at ease.  The follow-up call after my mercury fillings were replaced was great and made me think that the team care about their patients.  Thanks a lot and see you next time!

    I had a missing inlay replaced with gold, as well as a few mercury fillings replaced with non toxic materials, and older composite fillings replaced. The work was undertaken efficiently and with good craftsmanship - my teeth feel more comfortable, the surfaces solid and smooth, and bite even. It was very helpful to see x-rays of my mouth & live Continue Reading
