Amalgam pollutes our environment
Dental Amalgam, a 50% mercury product, currently accounts for between 240-300 tons of mercury entering the market every year. This makes dental offices the second largest user of mercury in the United States. Without an Amalgam Separator, dental amalgam ends up in our environment polluting water via dental clinic releases. Once in the environment, dental mercury converts to its even more toxic form: methlmercury and becomes a major source of mercury in the fish people eat.
Be Environmentally Responsible, Just like Your Patients
According to the ADA, more than 77% of patients practice some form of recycling, which means they will be taking note as to who is environmentally responsible. With the noticeable change in environmental attitudes, there has been a great demand for green business practices. More and more dentists are considering purchasing Amalgam Separators in order to decrease the amount of amalgam in the wastewater leaving their offices.
It Could be the Law!
Dentists who place or remove amalgams beware: The trend requiring them to install amalgam separators continues to grow. Presently, more than 7 states, including New York, require separators by law or regulation. Similar legislation has been filed or is pending in several other states. Not to mention, there are several cities requiring dentists to install separators; including Seattle and San Francisco.
