Buffalo Mercury-free Dentist
Developed in the 1840s, silver fillings were used by dentists to fill in holes in the teeth left by cavities. Silver fillings were actually a combination of silver and mercury ground into a paste, and contained more mercury than silver. That's why sometimes silver fillings are referred to as amalgam. Amalgam fillings are resistant to wear and tear, and they last a very long time.
For years silver fillings were the standard material used for fillings. In the 1980s new technological advances saw the advent of white composite filling materials. Now, composite fillings are just as wear-resistant and long lasting as amalgam. They can easily handle the stress of functioning in the back teeth.
Dr. Krutchick is a mercury-free Buffalo dentist. He understands that people have concerns about putting materials made with mercury inside their bodies. Because he doesn't shy away from new advances in technology as some other dentists do, he can offer options. He can also pass the advantages onto his patients.
