MSafe™ is a patent pending oxygen breathing system developed for patient, doctor and assistant, and other precautions to assure that everything possible is being done to protect the dentist, staff, patient and office environment from unnecessary exposure to mercury vapor during the removal of mercury amalgam fillings – a comprehensive Mercury Safe, SMART protocol.
The dental office is the only industry using elemental mercury that is not regulated, but there is a growing trend towards its regulation as the public is becoming increasingly aware of this issue, and more and more patients are seeking out Mercury Safe dentists. This makes it crucial to not only make your office Mercury Safe but to also make the dental patient aware that all possible effort has been made to protect them from exposure to mercury vapor.
The following videos are available on YouTube for your orientation to mercury vapor emission from amalgam fillings and during their removal:

There are a number of steps that can be taken to reduce the amount of mercury released during amalgam removal, but an essential aspect of any serious attempt to minimize exposure to mercury vapor is to provide the patient, dentist and assistant with an alternate source of contaminate free oxygen during the removal process. MSafe™ 3-way Oxygen Breathing Systems offer protection to the patient, doctor and assistant against inhaling mercury vapor when used during amalgam removal.
