SAFE MERCURY AMALGAM REMOVAL TECHNIQUE (SMART)

SMART was developed by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and stands for safe Mercury Amalgam Removal.

Below is a check list for the correct protocol ensuring existing amalgam fillings are replaced safely:

  • Slurry of charcoal, chlorella, or similar adsorbent for patient to rinse and swallow before the procedure
  • Full body, impermeable barrier, as well as full head/face/neck barrier under/around the dam
  • External air or oxygen delivered via a nasal mask for the patient OR via nasal cannula completely covered with an impermeable barrier
  • Dental dam made with non-latex nitrile material placed and properly sealed in the patient’s mouth
  • Saliva ejector placed under the dental dam
  • At source oral aerosol vacuum in close proximity to patient’s mouth
  • Clean Up device (not essential but preferred)
  • Copious amounts of water to reduce heat and a conventional high speed evacuation device to capture mercury discharges
  • Section amalgam into chunks and remove in as large of pieces as possible, using a small diameter carbide drill
  • After removal, the patient’s mouth should be thoroughly flushed with water and then rinsed out with a slurry of charcoal, chlorella or similar adsorbent
