There are many reasons why patients replace their silver dental fillings. Some say they are uncomfortable, others say they are visually unappealing while others worry that they pose a health risk. Here is the candid truth about replacing silver fillings or amalgams. 

Key takeaway:

  • Your amalgam fillings should not be replaced unless there is damage present.
  • A better and safer alternative to amalgams is composite fillings.
  • Silver fillings do not in any way cause mercury poisoning in the body.

Take care of your fillings by brushing your teeth and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups.
