The Silver Amalgam Debate Still Rages On

When the silver amalgam debate began to heat up over a decade ago, studies were conducted with the American Dental Association deeming amalgam safe for dental fillings, however, when you consider that mercury is a neurotoxin, and a very powerful one at that, how can it possibly be safe?

Dentistry for Health explains that 72 percent of people who responded to a survey had no idea that the silver fillings that they had grown up with, and probably still have, contained mercury, of those respondents, 92 percent would have liked to have been informed about the possible consequences.

Research indicates that mercury can cause autoimmune disease, neurological problems, mental disorders, and chronic illness.

According to Dentistry for Healthy NY, amalgam contains 50 percent mercury mixed with copper, tin and silver, and although amalgam fillings are still safe in the United States have been banned in Sweden and other Scandinavian countries for health reasons.

Studies conducted in Sweden showed a remarkable 78 percent improvement in patients who had been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome after having their amalgam fillings removed.

Back in 2013, Dr. Oz stated on his television show that the FDA and the ADA approved the use of silver amalgam fillings and will in fact deem any dentist who removes fillings unethical and could have their license taken away. Back then 47 percent of dentists still filled teeth with silver amalgam. Because they have been around for so long, they were still considered safe.
