Surprising Toxic Materials Used For Dental Purposes

Most patients assume that dentists use safe materials in their mouth. However, this is usually not the case. In the United States today, many dental materials in common use contain materials that might surprise, even shock, patients, including:

  • Mercury (a toxin)
  • Nickel (a brain toxin)
  • Heavy metals (such as cadmium and aluminum)
  • Chloroform
  • Formaldahyde
  • Fluoride (a potential carcinogen)

Why are these dangerous toxic materials used for dental purposes? Many dental professionals rely upon certifications or assurances from academic or dental governing bodies, which may be more concerned with the profitability of the field than the health of the individual patient. If your dentist does not know what materials are in their dental materials (or is unwilling to tell you), schedule an appointment with our office, Smilehaven Dental Center. We strive to use dental materials that demonstrate only the highest level of biocompatibility with each individual patient, which is why we employ a wide spectrum of biocompatibility tests to ensure that the materials used in your dental restorations are ideally suited for you.
