SMART – Patient Protection Sections A & B: Activated Charcoal and Chlorella
The patient should be given a slurry of charcoal, chlorella, or similar adsorbent to rinse and swallow before the procedure (unless the patient declines or there are other contraindications making this clinically inappropriate).24 25 26 27
|Activated Charcoal 60 vegi-capsules||$15.00 – or subscribe and get up to 5% off|
60 vegi-capsules of Activated Charcoal (260mg each). Activated Charcoal should be used both before and after amalgam removal as recommended by the IAOMT in their Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART).
Activated charcoal binds unwanted substances like a magnet to its surface and releases them through fecal matter. The alimentary canal (the pathway from your mouth, which leads through the stomach and into your elimination systems) is the medicinal activated charcoal’s detox highway. By way of this canal, the pressurized charcoal tugs harmful toxins to its surface without absorbing the toxins into the vital body channel. The unique makeup of activated charcoal is favorable, as it does not irritate or harm the mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal (GI) system. (2)
SMART – PATIENT PROTECTION – Sections C & D: Non-Latex Rubber Dam and Dam Sealer
A dental dam (47, 48, 49, 50, 51) that is made with non-latex nitrile material (52, 53, 54) should be placed and properly sealed in the patient’s mouth.
OPTIONAL ADD-ON: Read about how some dentists smear HgX cream on the dental dam before performing an amalgam removal to provide extra protection for the patient from mercury. Dentists also use HgX cream on their hands before donning their gloves to protect their skin from absorbing mercury. HgX cream can also be used on floor cleaners (such as a swiffer) to absorb and capture the mercury particles that settle onto the floor, which will continue to off gas mercury vapor into the dental operatory if not properly cleaned.
|Sanctuary Powder-Free Non Latex 6"x6" Medium Dental Dams (15 qty)|

SMART PATIENT PROTECTION – Sections E and F: Complete Facial Cover and Neck Wrap
Protective gowns and covers for the dentist, dental personnel, and the patient should be in place.(28) All present in the room should be protected because substantial quantities of particles generated during the procedure will elude collection by suction devices.(29) It has been demonstrated that these particles can be spread from the patient’s mouth to the patient’s knee, and to the chest, shoulder, and neck of the dentist and dental assistant. (30)
In order to protect the patient’s skin and clothing, a full body, impermeable barrier, as well as a full head/face/neck barrier under/around the dam, should be utilized.(42 43)
OPTIONAL ADD-ON: While not specified in the SMART recommendations, the safety glasses patients wear will inevitably accumulate mercury contaminated particulate matter on them. In order to clean them properly we offer a container of mercury wipes. Mercury wipes can also be used on counters and equipment.

Eliminate dangerous mercury residue from surfaces, hands and tools. Mercury Particulate Clean-up Wipes help suppress hazardous vapors. 30 per bottle.
SMART PATIENT PROTECTION – Section G: Oxygen / Air Nasal Mask
External air or oxygen delivered via a nasal mask for the patient also should be utilized to assure the patient does not inhale any mercury vapor or amalgam particulate during the procedure. 44 45 46 A nasal cannula is an acceptable alternative for this purpose as long as the patient’s nose is completely covered with an impermeable barrier.
|Biflo™ Nasal Mask with 7 ft. Kink-Resistant Tubing - (25 qty)||$60.00 – or subscribe and get up to 10% off|

Does not require humidifiers, as the gas passes over the nasal turbinates it is being warmed and humidified naturally. A comfortable alternative for those who cannot tolerate a cannula. 25 per case.
SMART PATIENT PROTECTION – Section H: Patient Drape
Protective gowns and covers for the dentist, dental personnel, and the patient should be in place.28 All present in the room should be protected because substantial quantities of particles generated during the procedure will elude collection by suction devices.29 It has been demonstrated that these particles can be spread from the patient’s mouth to the patient’s knee, and to the chest, shoulder, and neck of the dentist and dental assistant. 30
In order to protect the patient’s skin and clothing, a full body, impermeable barrier, as well as a full head/face/neck barrier under/around the dam, should be utilized.42 43
