In the s, Dr. Hal Huggins began promoting the theory that amalgam restorations caused a wide variety of diseases. In , he published a book that detailed his beliefs about mercury toxicity. 9 Dr. Huggins contends that amalgam restorations release enough mercury to cause neurological, cardiovascular, immunological, collagen, emotional and allergic diseases and by: Data. Randomized controlled trials, controlled clinical trials and prospective and retrospective cohort studies were included in this review. The eligibility criteria included clinical trials in humans with at least 12 months of follow-up comparing the failures rates between occlusal and occlusoproximal amalgam and composite resin by: 1.

The Effects of Dental Amalgam on the Environment The disposal of dental amalgam, specifically the mercury component, has become a controversial topic in the past twenty years. Due to the concern this issue brings, many studies have taken place regarding the effect of . Through this systematic review and meta-analysis, we aim to figure out the possible association between amalgam fillings and systemic diseases laying emphasis on multiple sclerosis, with the objective of governance of policies behind its reduction in use in Western world as compared to the Indian scenario.   The environmental impact of dental amalgam and resin-based composite materials. a systematic review and meta-analysis. J Dent Res absorbed dose Cited by: 2.   The debate about possible health effects induced by dental amalgam is marked by an absence of adequate epidemiological studies. Previous studies have mostly been small, had limited exposure data, been particularly subject to selection bias in terms of dental treatment access, and focused on a narrow range of by:

  Both dental amalgams and various alternative materials are considered effective and safe to use. They are associated with a very small proportion of local effects in the mouth and there is no evidence that they can cause disease. The relative risks and benefits of using different tooth filling materials should be explained to patients and the public at large. INTRODUCTION. Amalgam, an alloy of mercury (Hg), is an excellent and versatile dental restorative material. It has been used in dentistry since years due to its low cost, ease of application, strength, durability, and bacteriostatic effects.[] Popularity of amalgam as restorative material is decreasing these days due to concerns about detrimental health effects, environmental pollution.   Brownawell AM, Berent S, Brent RL, Bruckner JV, Doull J, Gershwin EM, et al.
