Dr. Ross Palioca
of Advanced Dental Practices takes pride in offering biological dentistry. This means he focuses on the health and wellness of the smile and the body as a whole. Everything performed is done with overall health in mind and is done without harmful materials.
This means avoiding the use of silver amalgam fillings and metal restorations.
What is the problem with silver amalgam?
Over the years, many dentists have used silver amalgam fillings. Unfortunately, the material is made of approximately 50 percent mercury, which is a toxin. When heated, it releases vapors that can result in neurological conditions and other medical problems. By avoiding the placement of silver amalgam fillings, patients can experience better overall health.
How can silver amalgam fillings be replaced?
Replacing silver amalgam fillings is done at the request of the patient.
Dr. Ross Palioca focuses on the standards set forth by the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology). This ensures the safety of the removal process. Once the filling has been removed, it can be replaced with composite resin. This material is a white clay-like substance that is much safer, does not expand and contract in the same way silver amalgam fillings do, and is much more aesthetic

"Friendly, Intelligent and Professional
Advanced Dental accommodated my emergency right away even though I have never been to this dental office before. I was so relieved to find a holistic dental practice so close to my work and home! Dr. Palioca took the time to talk with me and answer all my questions about removing my amalgam fillings, as well. He and his staff are so nice. They really lived up to all the good reviews. My former dental office always assured me that having mercury in my teeth was no problem but I know from my own research that this is not and cannot be true. Thank God for Dr. Palioca who is open to the truth about health and is willing to take the precautions for his patients, himself and his staff to make his office the safest most possible place for dental work. He has lots of information but does not push it on people. It is there in his waiting room or just ask him....he is willing to share his knowledge!"
