Amalgam Removal in Baton Rouge

Dental amalgam, often recognized as “silver” fillings and crowns, is a mixed metal material that was commonly used in dental procedures to provide strength to decayed tooth structure. With advancements in dental technology and products that provide better strength as well as aesthetic results, many patients are choosing safer materials to replace their old silver fillings.

What is Amalgam Removal?

A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks and fractures. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. Today, patients have better options for restorative fillings and crowns that are stronger, longer lasting, and biocompatible with our body’s natural state. Patients often seek safe removal of their dental amalgam to replace it with newer materials such as porcelain or resin composite restorations that return their teeth to a more natural color and appearance.

The
Amalgam Removal Process

Dr.Galliano uses advanced techniques to safely and effectively remove the mercury amalgam fillings. He has state of the art filtrate systems that keep the materials out of the air. This is one part of the popular Huggins Method that is used for safely removing amalgam fillings. When the tooth is numb, Dr.Galliano will remove decay and thoroughly clean out the cavity to prepare for the new filling to be placed.

What are common signs of Oral Cancer?

  • Leukoplakia - White slightly raised lesion that can show up anywhere in the mouth, it can sometimes be cancerous without treatment.
  • Lumps - Lumps, or soreness of tissue anywhere in the throat or mouth can signal cancerous complications.

Are dental x-rays safe?

Our environment naturally has radiation occurring in it at all times. Dr. Galliano uses state of the art digital technology which is 90% less radiation than traditional film. The amount of radiation exposure from a full mouth series of x-rays is equal to the amount a person receives in one day from natural resources. Another example is that you receive more radiation driving from Baton Rouge to New Orleans one time than you would with years of dental x rays.

Are dental x-rays necessary?

Yes dental x-rays are essential preventative, diagnostic tools that provide Dr.Galliano with valuable information that can’t be seen visually. They are part of the American Dental Association's Standard of Care, and required of all new patients in order for proper diagnosis.
