Because Beverly Hills dentist Kourosh Maddahi is concerned about the overall health and well-being of his dental patients, he uses no materials in his dental practice that contain mercury.
There are more than 7,000 materials currently available for dentists to use when they are treating your teeth. A smile transformation specialist, Dr. Maddahi takes care to test his patients for allergies or adverse reactions before choosing to use a particular compound—and none of the compounds he uses contain mercury. Many people do not realize that "silver" amalgam fillings are 50% mercury, which is very toxic, even in small amounts.
Due to its poisonous nature, mercury can adversely affect the immune, urinary, cardiac, respiratory and digestive systems. Under laboratory conditions, mercury has produced brain cell deterioration identical to that seen in victims of Alzheimer's disease.
With so many other, better and safer choices available, Dr. Maddahi chooses not to offer amalgam, mercury-containing fillings to his patients.
Your dental work will be a part of your body for a very long time. Don’t you want to be sure that the materials used will be safe for years to come?
