How safe are silver fillings, x-rays, and fluoride?

Dental patient with question marks above his head near Bonita Springs dentist officeUsed properly, none of these pose a danger to your health. Silver (amalgam) fillings have been used effectively for many years, but there’s been a lot of discussion recently the about mercury contained in silver fillings. Any release of mercury, however, is significantly less than what you’re exposed to every day in food, air, and water. But we do have other choices including porcelain, gold, and tooth-colored fillings in Bonita Springs. 

At Bonita Grande Dental, we use digital x-rays that expose you to about 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays. X-rays help detect disease, including tumors, and can help determine the location of cavities that may not be found in a visual examination. We’re also conservative in the schedule we follow for x-rays, only taking them when it’s absolutely necessary for a diagnosis or as part of your ongoing healthcare.

Fluoride is a naturally occurring element that’s found in water, soil, air, and most foods. It is absorbed easily into the enamel and helps prevent decay and even repair early decay before it damages the tooth.
