In the past, and in some dental offices today, amalgam fillings containing mercury are used to fill teeth that have been broken down by decay. This mercury is digested on a daily basis into your bloodstream; weakening the body ex(kidneys). It is well documented that placing amalgam fillings requires the removal of a significant amount of healthy tooth. In turn, weakening the tooth increasing the risk of further more extensive dental treatments in the future. The FDA advisory panel in 2010 warned against the use of amalgam in vulnerable patients such as children, pregnant women, hypersensitive individuals, and people with weak kidney’s. The panel insisted that the FDA had a duty to disclose amalgam’s risk to parents and consumers. However, since they won’t we will!
