About 50% of amalgam is made of mercury. The rest from other metals such as silver and tin. In the past 20 years, mercury has been linked to:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Kidney damage
- Brain damage
The video titled as “Amalgam Removal And Different Restoration Methods” talks about why it is important to remove amalgam fillings from teeth.
The mercury in the amalgam fillings releases low levels of mercury vapor, which is absorbed into the bloodstream in the lungs. The common symptoms of mercury poisoning include:
- Skin discoloration
- Swelling and shedding of the skin
- Increased heart rate (tachycardia)
- Elevated blood pressure (hypertension)
- Hair loss (alopecia)
- Memory impairment and brain fog
- Kidney dysfunction and more
Hence it becomes very important to remove amalgam fillings.
The method to do new restoration replacement includes the following:
- Composite resin: It is a tooth colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth.
- Ceramic Inlay-Onlay: An inlay is usually an indirect restoration filling fitted to a cavity in a tooth and cemented into place.
