Amalgam fillings had been the popular choice when it came to filling cavities because of their ability to mold securely to teeth. However, the presence of mercury in those fillings has caused concern for many dentists today including Dr. Craig, who has transitioned to using a composite resin as his preferred filling material.
Dr. Craig recommends removing amalgam fillings that have begun to break down to reduce the potential for mercury exposure. Amalgam fillings are comprised of about 50 percent mercury, with the remainder being silver and other metals. Mercury is a highly toxic substance that can cause a variety of negative health effects.
