Dental Silver Filling is a Health RisK?

Posted on: July 7, 2012

Recently there are health concerns with mercury in dental amalgam fillings that question the affect on nervous system.  Although studies had proven there are no correlations between mercury contents in dental amalgam fillings with problems with nervous system, it is best to avoid using amalgam to restore carious teeth all together.  The alternative to mercury contained fillings is white resin fillings that are comparable in duration and strength while esthetically more pleasing than metal silver fillings.  Patients are more at ease knowing the resin composite fillings are 100 percent safe and can restore the teeth beautifully.
