Mercury Free Dentistry Instead of Amalgam
In the first place, they are made from amalgam, silver amalgam contains mercury. According to the FDA mercury is a toxic substance. However, it is still being used in fillings as most believe the toxic poisonous mercury will remain safe inside the dental filling material. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case.
Most people will not feel damage to fillings. Chips, cracks and leaks go unnoticed most of the time. Only your Delray Beach dentist knows how to tell if you are dealing with a broken silver amalgam filling. He will also explain the advantages of mercury free dentistry.
How Long has Amalgam Been Around?
Silver amalgam fillings were introduced by a French Dentist in the early 1800s. The material was used as both filler and a dental restorative. The amalgam that was developed back then was made from melted silver coins and mercury.
Anything but Natural
While mercury is a natural substance it certainly isn’t healthy. Take a look at an old weather thermometer, used by consumers for years, and you will see that the mercury is contained within the vessel.
If a thermometer leaks it becomes toxic. The same happens to your silver amalgam fillings if they leak, chip or crack.
When you chew, damaged amalgam fillings release a vapor. Those mercury vapors are toxic. While researchers are still running continuous studies on long term affects, most believe the accumulation will cause chronic health problems.
The best thing to do for your overall and oral health is to schedule an appointment with Dr. George Sanchez. He will advise you on silver amalgam filling removal and the best mercury free dentistry replacement for those toxic dental fillings.
