Amalgam Fillings – The Scary Truth

25 Nov

Amalgam (mercury) fillings have been commonly used among dental professionals for decades to fix cavity-infected teeth. The word “amalgam” literally means “a mix or blend,” which makes sense as this type of filling has more than one component. Amalgam fillings are made of a mixture of liquid mercury, tin, silver and copper.

Although once deemed “safe,” over the last decade, an increasing amount of studies have surfaced to show the potential danger of amalgam fillings. As a consumer, it is crucial that you conduct your own research to determine your risk of suffering from diseases associated with amalgam filling absorption and inhalation. With the help of this blog, we hope to keep our valued patients and their families informed, but most importantly, safe.
