Welcome to the forefront of dental health and safety!
The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) is dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of dental products and their impact on our well-being.
Our focus extends beyond conventional dentistry norms; we delve deep into the biocompatibility of dental products. From the potential risks posed by mercury fillings to the intricacies of fluoride, root canals, and jawbone osteonecrosis, we leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of knowledge. Our research is not just about understanding these elements; it’s about empowering individuals with the information they need to make informed decisions about their oral health.
At IAOMT, we are not just an organization; we are a global network comprising dentists, health professionals, and scientists united by a common purpose — safeguarding public health and the environment. Since our inception in 1984, we have tirelessly pursued our mission, evolving into a non-profit force committed to transformative change.
Amalgam-free dentistry prioritizes avoiding controversial mercury fillings, recognizing associated risks for conscientious dental practices.
Eliminating avoidable sources of fluoride, including water fluoridation, fluoride-containing dental materials, and other fluoridated products, as a means to promote overall health.

The IAOMT’s commitment to dental safety is underscored by the continual evolution of its safe amalgam removal protocol. Recently updated on July 19, 2019, these guidelines, now officially known as the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) since July 1, 2016, signify a crucial step towards enhancing dental care standards.
Dental amalgams, comprising approximately 50% mercury, emit mercury vapors, a consistent finding supported by reports and research. Scientific investigations reveal that dental mercury amalgam poses risks to professionals, staff, patients, and even fetuses, releasing mercury vapor and particulate matter during various activities.
In response to compelling scientific evidence, the IAOMT has meticulously developed extensive safety recommendations for the removal of dental mercury amalgam fillings. These recommendations go beyond traditional methods, incorporating novel protective measures identified in recent research.
Get into the critical aspects of the IAOMT’s comprehensive approach, touching upon the importance of amalgam separators, room filtration, patient preparations, and the utilization of protective equipment.
