Damaged Silver Amalgam Fillings Can Be Dangerous
Your old dental restorations could be harboring a dark secret. You may be proud of your 30-year-old silver amalgam fillings, but you can bet there is something hiding under your old dental restorations. Bragging about your 25-year-old dental crowns isn’t something you should be telling the world about as tooth decay could still form under old dental restorations and silver amalgam fillings.
According to your Holistic Dentist New York, tooth decay can form in the healthy part of the tooth. If you should have a crack or chip in the filling, which is highly likely considering its age, mercury from the silver amalgam will leak. Not only that, a crack can allow for bacteria and debris to penetrate the tooth. You may think you are okay because you are not in pain, but Dentistry for Health New York has a different opinion.
Cavities don’t always hurt, especially if the pulp inside the tooth has been damaged, is dying, or is already dead. The pulp in your tooth contains nerves that will desensitize the tooth making it impossible to feel anything.

Sadly, 72 percent of people surveyed in the United States were not aware of the link between silver fillings and mercury. 92 percent of that group questioned the mercury leakage issues during silver filling placement.
