    Dr. Kevin Flood, general, holistic, and cosmetic dentist in Grand Rapids, is helping local patients improve their health by specializing in mercury amalgam filling removal, replacing them with bio compatible materials that are completely safe and have no risk of toxicity. Many patients, especially those in their middle ages or elderly years, still have amalgam fillings that contain mercury, which can pose a health risk if the mercury begins leaking from the filling. Using a special process, Dr. Flood can effectively remove these fillings without causing harm to the patient and replace them with safer composite material.

    Filling cavities with amalgam has been a standard in the dental industry for more than 100 years, however, this material often contains 50% mercury. While amalgam fillings are effective in restoring the structure of the tooth, at times, poorly designed amalgam fillings can begin leaking mercury, causing low-grade chronic mercury intoxication. This problem can cause symptoms like anxiety, fatigue, headaches, stress intolerance, and depression.

    This bio compatible composite material is also tooth colored, making it the preferred choice for patients seeking better aesthetics for their smile. Unlike amalgam fillings that look like dark metal in the mouth, composite material is virtually unnoticeable as a filling and blends in naturally with the rest of a patient’s smile.

    Dr. Flood has been practicing dentistry for more than 30 years. He graduated from the University of Illinois Dental School in 1984 and since completing his formal dental education, has also completed advanced training in pain management. He is a member of the ADA, the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, the Great Lakes Medical Association, the West Michigan Dental Society, and many other professional dental organizations.
