Mercury-Free Fillings

There’s no getting around the fact that dentists put a lot of things in your mouth. Because of this, Dr. Walton choses to practice as a bio-compatible dentist in Indianapolis, which means he recognizes the sources and impact of toxic materials as they relates to both dental and overall physiological health—and that he only uses materials and procedures that are systemically compatible and safe in your mouth and for your body.

Many people don’t realize that silver fillings—also known as amalgam fillings—contain traces of mercury that can leak out of the filling over time. In fact, according to the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology, "The World Health Organization has concluded that dental fillings contribute more mercury to a person's body than all other sources of mercury combined."

Because of the possibility of potential health risks associated with mercury, Dr. Walton is a mercury-free dentist and prefers the use of tooth-colored or composite fillings as an alternative. In addition to being more aesthetically pleasing, tooth-colored fillings actually bond better to the tooth structure making the tooth stronger.

Dr. Walton also specializes in the safe removal of silver or amalgam fillings.
