ORA Dental Studio has proudly partnered with the WHO (World Health Organization) to advance its Mercury Free Health Care Program. Mercury is one of the world's most ubiquitous heavy metal neurotoxicants and ORA is leading the way as a designated mercury-free practice that also implements the safe removal of mercury containing fillings.
Traditionally, mercury fillings are replaced by tooth colored resin fillings, which contain BPA. BPA, known as Bisphenol A, is an organic compound used as a building block for several important plastics, plastic additives and in composite dental resins. It has been found to be hazardous to humans due to its estrogenic and possible carcinogenic potential. For the safety of our patients, ORA has diligently sought out a BPA-free dental composite resin, which we use exclusively.
Upholding the Precautionary Principle within our practice, ORA Dental Studio is the first dental practice to exclusively utilize a BPA-free dental composite resin.
