Metal-Free Fillings | Tooth Restorations
The amalgam-mercury dental fillings are contemporary restorations from the Civil War era. In recent years an on-going debate about the potential health risk these dental fillings may place on the body’s immune system has existed. In fact, even several European countries no longer allow these restorations to be used. Though our country has not yet taken this position, it is fascinating to observe the health regulatory authorities have designated the extra mercury scraps as a toxic waste, which must be isolated, packaged, and hauled away by a hazardous waste disposal service.
