Mercury Free Dentistry in Suwanee, GA - Jay L. Rosenheck, DDS, PC
Dr. Jay Rosenheck is a top mercury free dentist in Suwanee. Dr. Rosenheck uses composite (tooth colored) fillings to safely repair decayed and damaged teeth. Unlike amalgam dental fillings, tooth colored restorations are free of mercury, a potent neuro-toxic substance which is linked to brain degeneration and the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Tooth coloured fillings also have the benefit of being far more aesthetically pleasing than silver amalgam fillings. What’s more, they strengthen weakened teeth, unlike amalgam which requires the removal of healthy tooth matter and can crack teeth over time. For all these reasons, Dr. Rosenheck only uses tooth colored fillings, both for new restorations and to replace your old, dangerous amalgam fillings.
As a leading mercury free dentist in Suwanee, Dr. Rosenheck is committed to educating his patients about the dangers of mercury. Over the past 15 years, medical research laboratories have established that dental amalgam tooth fillings are a major contributor to mercury body burden. In 1997, a team of research scientists proved that mercury vapour inhalation by animals produced a molecular lesion in brain protein metabolism which is similar to the lesion seen in 80 per cent of Alzheimer diseased brains. And more recently, scientists have delivered compelling visual evidence of how mercury ions trigger the rapid degeneration of the neurites in brain tissue.
Dr. Rosenheck chooses to be a mercury free dentist in Suwanee, because the mercury in dental amalgam is a known health risk. It is also bioaccumulative, even crossing the placenta to accumulate in foetuses. Nursing infants, children, and people with impaired kidney function are also particularly susceptible to the neurotoxic effects of mercury vapour.
What’s more, amalgalm damages teeth. It requires the removal of healthy tooth, and can further weaken the tooth structure as it expands, contracts or splits with age. By contrast, tooth-colored restorations are bonded to the teeth for a tighter, superior fit. Such restorations can be used where much of the tooth structure has been lost, keeping the tooth intact and stronger. Another reason to choose a mercury free dentist in Suwanee is because the resin used in tooth-colored restorations are bonded to the teeth, which can help prevent decay. The resin wears like natural teeth and doesn’t need to be placed at the gum line, making it healthier for your gums.
