Don’t ban a filling material because it isn’t white. I know. People are worried about mercury, but the scientific evidence isn’t there that it is the risk people fear. Don’t forget DDT was banned and this has resulted in the death of millions in Africa. Also, just because a filling material IS white, doesn’t mean it doesn’t have problems as well.  These are not simple problems and therefore solutions are not simple either. Now go floss.

  1. Is this something that the public relations firm has suggested whitewashing the dirty secrets? Those dirty silver fillings are 50% mercury and FDA does not, nor the manufacturers have proof of safety. European countries have banned the use of the dirty silver fillings/dental amalgam because of the dirty truth. Mercury does not belong in your mouth.
