European Environmental Bureau Urges EU States to Ban Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam Filling

Story at-a-glance -

  • In a letter to European Union (EU) member state representatives and dental experts, the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) asked recipients to support a phase-out of the use of mercury in dentistry, both in the EU and around the world.
  • The EEB letter comes on the heels of an August 2012 European Commission report by the BIO Intelligence Service (BIOS), which also recommended the phase-out of dental amalgam and mercury in button cell batteries.
  • Sweden has already phased out dental mercury, and several other European countries have either significantly reduced its use or have imposed restrictions on it; the United States has been shockingly slow to respond to mounting evidence of significant harm from dental amalgam.
  • Dental mercury is not only a personal health risk, it’s also a major environmental pollutant to global air, water and soil.
  • The momentum toward mercury-free dentistry is gaining speed and, it appears, may be set to become a reality in the 21st century -- with continued support.
