Mercury Free Biological & Bio-compatible Dentistry
In a world that is fast saturated with additives, toxins and non-natural environmental factors, we recognize the importance of natural therapies and health solutions. Our office provides a latex free, mercury free, mercury safe, and fluoride free environment.
We provide a Holistic-oriented approach to your dental care. Dr. John Johnson has not placed a mercury/silver/amalgam filling since he left dental school in 1984.
We only remove the mercury/silver/amalgam fillings in our state of the art, dedicated “mercury removal room” This room has several suctions in place and also a whole room air exchange system. We use rubber dams, a whole body drape, extra suctions, plenty of water spray to keep the teeth cool, and have our patients breathe oxygen during the removal process.
Your comfort and safety are our main concern. At New Albany Adult Dentistry, we are devoted to comprehensive and preventive patient care. We believe that our patients should have as much information as possible in order to make important decisions regarding your overall health and treatment options.
We strive to develop long-lasting, trusting relationships with all of our patients.
Dr. Johnson is a proud member of the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology). The IAOMT and its members are very concerned about excess exposure to mercury when old amalgam fillings are removed. The process of drilling out amalgam fillings liberates quantities of mercury vapor and fine particulates that can be inhaled and absorbed through the lungs. We have developed some simple methods for reducing this exposure, which all members of the IAOMT should be aware of. Accredited members, Fellows and Masters are all certified as being proficient in safe amalgam removal techniques.
