Fewer and fewer people are asking this question, but occasionally we still do get it.
Are metal fillings safe?
The answer to this is, yes.
There have been studies done by the American Dental Association
and the Centers for Disease Control that both state that metal fillings
are safe to use.
In fact in certain cases we still use this material.
It is rare however, do to the fact that most people do not want the metal look.
You can go on the internet and find sites that tell you the horrors of amalgam.
But you can find a lot of stuff on the internet that isn't necessarily true.
If you have questions ask your dentist.
