Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART)

Our office is SMART certified, which means we go to the greatest lengths possible to protect you, ourselves, our patients, and our planet when removing mercury amalgam “silver” fillings to replace them with biocompatible alternatives.

The science-based guidelines we follow were developed by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, and include the use of protective coverings, air filtering and alternative oxygen sources, water irrigation, and high volume suction.

You can learn more about our safety protocol here.

Let Us Help You Attain Optimal Oral-Systemic Health

To get started, we recommend that you schedule a comprehensive exam to identify any sources of infection in the teeth, gums, or jawbone. We look at each tooth and its condition, including the condition of any restorative materials and their effect on both the tooth and your overall health.

We will take digital x-rays to further evaluate the health of your teeth and bone. Additionally, we can use our state of the art 3D cone beam scanner (CBCT) to get a better picture of your teeth and jaws in relation to the tissues and structures around them. With CBCT imaging, we routinely find abscesses, infections, bone loss, and NICO lesions (cavitations) that are easily missed by conventional x-rays.

We will also evaluate your periodontal health, which science has shown can influence a wide range of systemic conditions, from heart disease and stroke to diabetes, kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and even Alzheimer’s disease and some cancers.

Our Commitment to Your Health

We understand that when barriers to health are removed and the body is given what it needs to function as it was designed to do, regeneration and healing can happen.

Our goal is always to help you achieve that or prevent problems from arising in the first place. Our biological approach – understanding and respecting the relationship of mouth and body – lets us do that most effectively and least invasively.

In this pursuit, education plays just as much of a role as the treatments we provide in our Tulsa clinic. For best results happen when you take an active role in your own treatment and healing. Informed patients make wise choices.

We encourage you to begin your learning through exploring the resources here on our site. Then contact us and let us help you achieve amazing health!
