ADA Answers Concerns Regarding Use of Dental Amalgam

ADA Answers Concerns Regarding Use of Dental Amalgam

In a recent article in the ADA News, the American Dental Association states that dental amalgam is a safe and effective material for restorative procedures. It has many benefits, reasonable cost, durability and ease of placement being among them, and the ADA studies have shown that exposure to mercury from dental amalgam has no adverse health risks. If you would like to learn more on this issue, please visit the ADA web site at This article is printed in the recent January 5, 2004 issue of ADA News.

Recently, the American Dental Association published articles in its journal, ADA News on the safety of types of restorative material used in dentistry. While we always let our patients choose which types of restorative materials are used in their mouths, we want them to know that even the old-style silver fillings are safe to use. We would never use anything in a patient's mouth that is not of the highest degree of safety and efficacy. Therefore, whether you choose the new tooth-colored fillings or the old stand-by silver ones, you can be sure that your decision is a good one.
