Dental Waste Disposal Services FAQs

Dental offices often handle hazardous waste, with dental amalgam being a common type. Amalgam is a mixture of liquid mercury and metal alloy used for filling cavities. Even if a practice does not use amalgam fillings, drilling into teeth with existing amalgam fillings can generate mercury waste. To comply with the final EPA amalgam rule, dental offices must operate and maintain an amalgam separator. Dentists placing amalgam fillings must dispose of amalgam capsules in designated buckets sent to certified disposal companies. Additionally, teeth extracted with amalgam fillings must be placed in amalgam disposal containers.

Regulations regarding dental waste and its disposal are expanding quickly. Dental waste disposal, an inherently precise process, receives continual updates to prevent materials from leaching into the environment. The main types of dental waste include amalgam, hazardous, pharmaceutical, and sharps, each requiring specific standards for proper disposal.
