There are many types of fillings available for teeth like Amalgam, Metals, GIC, Composite, Ceramic etc. The best tooth fillings for you will depend on cost and your aesthetic preferences. There is a wide variety of materials used for filling cavities and they vary in strength and color. Our dentists at Sabkadentist prefer the composite filligs as they are durable and tooth colored. All these fillings have their own pros and cons.

The answer from the dental community has been "Not Much". There is no conclusive evidence that the amount of Mercury contained in a dental filling can hurt you. You should know that they are not comprised entirely of Mercury and the substance is referred to as amalgam. There are alternatives to Mercury amalgam fillings and you should ask you dentist if these are available if your concern is that great.

Metal fillings are either gold or an alloy of silver, silver amalgam, and titanium. Non-metallic fillings are a type of acrylic (methyl methacrylate), ceramic, glass ionomer cement, or a composite resin.

It has to do with Metallic dental fillings. If you haven't any fillings then you will not be able to test it out...however, if you do have fillings and some Aluminum Foil (look at your package, there is no tin in it) it an easy test to carry out.

An alloy of mercury and silver is used to make dental amalgams (dental fillings). Mercury is also used in thermometers.

Amalgam dental fillings are typically expected to last 5-10 years, although many have lasted much longer. If two or more fillings are placed in a mouth at the same time, it is reasonable to expect that those fillings will probably wear out at about the same time.

Mercury is used in dental fillings because it is one of the few metals that is liquid at room temperature. It is easy to work with and will stand up to the test of time.

"Mercury poisoning" is an imprecise term that can apply to numerous symptoms associated with absorption of mercury. According to the FDA: "FDA has reviewed the best available scientific evidence to determine whether the low levels of mercury vapor associated with dental amalgam fillings are a cause for concern. Based on this evidence, FDA considers dental amalgam fillings safe for adults and children ages 6 and above. The amount of mercury measured in the bodies of people with dental amalgam fillings is well below levels associated with adverse health effects. Even in adults and children ages 6 and above who have fifteen or more amalgam surfaces, mercury exposure due to dental amalgam fillings has been found to be far below the lowest levels associated with harm. Clinical studies in adults and children ages 6 and above have also found no link between dental amalgam fillings and health problems."

A dental filling, as the name suggests, fills a cavity that is caused by Dental Decay. Fillings can be made of different materials. They can be tooth colored, made of 'composite resin' materials. Silver Amalgam is also used to fill teeth. Should you have any doubt, please consult your dentist for treatment options. Fillings help to fill in spaces in teeth, prevent further damage to the tooth and protect the interior core of the tooth against exterior exposure to substances that may further damage the tooth structure.

If you have dental fillings aluminum can react with them and your saliva to generate a small voltage.

Most dental insurance plans cover routine maintaince and fillings for cavaties. This coverage should be suffiecient for the majority of people.
