Metal dental amalgam fillings have been commonly used in dentistry for decades, however, with recent studies proving the dangers of the fillings due to toxins, we are now replacing amalgam fillings daily. Amalgam fillings are made with a material that’s roughly 43-54 percent mercury, giving them a silver appearance. While these fillings are generally considered to be safe by many, the fillings release mercury vapor into your body, causing an accumulation of mercury exposure overtime. As your family dentist in Oklahoma City, Grand Dental Studio has everything you need to know about mercury fillings and the toxins they release.

According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, the most effective way to control oral cancer is to diagnose and treat the disease in its earliest stages. This is likely no surprise. At Grand Dental Studio, our dentists and team are dedicated to offering patients superior preventive dentistry. That starts with great at-home hygiene and regular six month visits. When your dentist is familiar with your oral health history as well as family, environmental, and behavioral risk factors, he or she is more likely to diagnose oral cancer before it causes significant damage. Oral cancer symptoms are subtle and often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed by doctors who are less familiar with patients. Maintaining regular preventive dentistry checkups at Grand Dental Studio is one of the best ways to prevent oral cancer and other detrimental dental health concerns.
