Some people do not want mercury in their mouth due to health reasons. Here at Love-Teeth, we can remove old amalgam fillings using a ‘rubber dam’ and very high-powered suction, to prevent inhalation of mercury vapours. The removed filing can then be replaced with mercury-free aesthetic fillings.
Teeth have a hard enamel surface, however poor oral hygiene can lead to a build-up of plaque which can then lead to decay. If decay is left untreated, the nerve of the tooth may become infected and die. In some cases, this may cause an abscess.
If you would like more information regarding our filling removal treatment, we welcome you to contact us. We understand that you may concerns about the treatment so we offer a full consultation process so you are fully aware of the entire process.
When we are asleep, the pH of plaque is neutral (pH7). When we eat, sugars combine with the plaque to form acid and lower the pH.
Brushing removes the plaque and the pH increases. Did you know that each snack you consume reduces the pH for 30-40mins?
Chewing something after meals releases saliva which helps to neutralise the acid, so you may consider chewing something like sugar-free gum to help reduce the acid more quickly.
