Use a Mercury-Free Dentist

no to dental amalgam

Story at-a-glance -

  • About half of all dentists in the U.S. still use “silver” amalgam, 50 percent of which is actually mercury, not silver
  • Mercury is the most volatile and toxic of the heavy metals, and the vapors released when chewing or brushing pose a clear and present danger to health, especially your brain and kidneys
  • Europe is banning the use of amalgam fillings in pregnant or nursing women and children under the age of 15. The rule takes effect on July 1, 2018
  • Despite efforts to get the U.S. FDA to enforce the Minamata Convention rule on mercury, which states that proactive steps must be taken to phase out the use of dental mercury, the agency continues to encourage the use of amalgam, even in children
  • Don’t let another year go by without locating a qualified mercury-free dentist. Also check your dental insurance policy; if it does not fully pay for mercury-free fillings in all teeth, learn how you can fight back
