Current Dental Amalgams & their problems

  1. All the current dental amalgam fillings contain mercury.

 

  1. FDA has always given for more than 150 yrs now its unilateral support to amalgams saying that they are safe for use. No more as FDA has been taken to court by the anti-mercury group.

 

  1. FDA now admits that there is a possibility of neurotoxicity in children & fetuses in pregnant women due to the excess mercury in amalgams.

 

 Suitable Alternatives

 

  1. FDA , American Dental Association (ADA), FDI (The World Dental Body based in Geneva) have till today support the use of amalgams (inspite of the issue of excess mercury) as there is no suitable material available that can do the job equally well . Amalgams are also cost effective and easy to use.

  2. The Resins (also known as `Composites’ are all petrochemical derivatives . They contain a chemical `Bisphenol –A (BPA). This chemical is a hydrocarbon and studies at a lab on rodents showed  that BPA can cause hormonal changes in the ovaries of the Rodents.

  3.  Composites are also expensive and have a sensitive technique for use. They don’t have high resistance to wear like  amalgams and also have high shrinkage upon hardening.

 

Concern by United States Environment ProtectionAgency (USEPA):

 

                      USEPA has shown concern with regards to the environment impact due to mercury in amalgams:

 

4.    Waste amalgam getting into the dental spittoons can cause pollution to the water system.
