IAOMT safety protocol

IAOMT approved safety protocol

International Association of Metal Toxicology (IAOMT) recommendation the most important measures including:

Use of the IAOMT-approved ``cleanup suction`` tips and/or rubber dam.

High-volume air evacuation with mercury filters.

Using a non aerosol producing micro motor drill with less RPM, and following a sectioning method of amalgam removal to minimise mercury vaporisation.

Placement of protective face mask over the patient’s nose and eyes. The placement of medical air-oxygen nasal canula, allows for an independent clean air way of breathing during the mercury filling removal procedure.

Copious rinsing with “Binders” after amalgam removal.

A Photon Wave light therapy session to help the patient relax.

Protective Barriers

For virtually all-operative procedures involving removing metals from the mouth, a specially designed Clean -Up dam-suction tip is used over the treated tooth, A high-volume suction is placed on the “tooth-side” of the barrier and a low-volume suction is placed in the mouth, “air-way” side of the barrier.  After metal removal, we provide a rinse with “binders”  to further evacuate potential vapours and particles. Further barriers include eye protection and  Silver impregnated face cloth. The dental surgery space is well ventilated and the air is continually scrubbed with the use of an mercury air purification system. The dental Team uses a mercury filtering face mask during the procedure.
