Should Old Silver Fillings Be Replaced?

Back to posts

There has been a lot of controversy related to the use of the traditional amalgam silver fillings.
The controversial topic widely states that amalgam fillings contain the element Mercury which can be dangerous to people if they receive high exposure and that it has been said that amalgam fillings can leech Mercury into the mouth. But there hasn’t been any conclusive evidence to state if this is enough exposure to cause any health concerns, such as Mercury poisoning.
At Ascent Dental Care Solihull our patient’s welfare is of the upmost importance to us and as a result we avoid the use of Mercury fillings, and offer alternative such as tooth colored composites and ceramic fillings.
