Teeth Are Fun: Hazardous Mercury In Your Mouth Isn’t Fun, And..

If you have dental amalgam – or silver fillings – they’re about half mercury, a toxic substance that requires hazardous material protocols to handle. Biocompatible dentists now know it’s a mistake. Harmless, durable, tooth-colored composite is better – and it’s oh so much better looking too. Learn more about the hazards of mercury in your mouth when you call Brighton Dental in San Diego at (619) 359-6569 and come in for a free consultation.

Teeth Are Fun: There’s More Than One Right Answer…

When a tooth is knocked out, handle it only by the crown, not the root – and reinsert it if possible, then get to a dentist within 30 minutes. If reinserting isn’t possible, keep it wet in milk, water or a wet paper towel. And keep it clean. You can even put it between your cheek and gums if you promise not to swallow it — if you’re not too freaked out to remember about that.
