I could have never imagined how life changing my appointment with Dr Anna Maria Yiannikos could be. I have found my smile that I thought I lost. Thank you for giving me back my confidence.
Since childhood my fear has always been the visits to the dentist, never the less the fear continued up until my first visit with Dr. Anna Maria Yiannakos. I was literally shaking with fear. After my appointment, everything chaged for the better. I now actually look forward to my visits! I feel that I have made new friends and completely at home when I am there. This has been a life changing experience for me. I am free of fear and love my smile.
DENTAL FILLINGS IN CYPRUS
Replacing silver amalgam fillings safely with SMART.
A high-volume air filtration system known as Dental Air Vacuum System will be in function inside the room during the removal of silver fillings.
Oxygen will be delivered via a nasal cannula for the patient to prevent inhaling any mercury vapor or amalgam particulate during the procedure.
All windows in the room must be open. All dental staff as well as the patient, will have to wear protective gowns. It is very important as particles of mercury may spread from the mouth to your knees, chest, shoulders, and neck as well as on us!
We will provide protective caps, as well as active carbon masks.
We will use nitrile gloves.
We will place and sealed a dental dam in your mouth.
We will use a strong saliva suction system throughout the procedure. Our main aim is to protect you from the mercury amalgam particles.
The amalgam should be sectioned in to chunks and removed in as large pieces as possible.
You will rinse your mouth with the mouthwash of Chlorella at the end of the procedure.

Biocompatible White Fillings
At our Centre of Holistic Dentistry Yiannikos, we remain loyal to a longtime philosophy:
It is our desire to offer to you, our patient, the highest level of dental services based not only on your oral health but also on your general health.
With modern technology, we are able to create fillings that blend in perfectly with your natural teeth as well as imitate the dentin and enamel layers of the teeth. This gives you the best results both aesthetically and functionally.
Our Centre exclusively uses, for fillings and for the teeth’s restoration after amalgam fillings’ removal, the worldwide first restoration material; the Admira Fusion VOCO. We use this because it does not contain parabens like:
These are all cytotoxic substances responsible for allergies and for damages not only to the human organism but to the environment as well. Additionally, Admira Fusion has a pure ceramic base and its absolutely biocompatible.
For this reason, it is the most suitable filling material for all our patients, especially for children, pregnant women, patients with severe allergies, autoimmune diseases and neoplastic diseases.
This is the reason why the Admira Fusion is an irremovable part of the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART).
