Amalgam filler is also known as black color or silver filler.

In fact, although there are many kinds of metals in its content, it is also called this way because it is a silver-weighted metal. The contained metals (silver, tin, copper and zinc) are mixed with mercury in a special blender to a certain consistency. These metals are in the form of powder, while mercury is a liquid. When the two are mixed, a soft dough consistency is obtained. This soft consistency filler is applied to the tooth in this way and is expected to harden.

Mercury contained in the amalgam filler is a poison harmful to health; it affects the nervous and digestive systems, the immune system, the lungs and the kidneys. It is harmful to child development, both in the womb and in the first childhood. Children are especially vulnerable.

Is mercury in amalgam harmful?

Amalgam fillings contain heavy metals (mercury). Each amalgam filler contains approximately as much mercury as in a thermometer. In the mouth, these amalgams are corroded. But this corrosion does not prevent the amalgam from releasing mercury by undergoing microtraumas during chewing. In the blood tests of people who have lived with oral amalgam fillings for many years, mercury, that is, mercury, is found when looking at heavy metal.

Vitamin supplements should be given

Mercury is excreted from the body in 15 days when taken orally (with meals and hot drinks), but when taken by inhalation, it is only half in 18 years.

Since mercury is released when removing amalgam fillings, the removal of fillings should be done under special conditions and consciously, attention should be paid to the sensitivity of the subject. In order to remove amalgam from the body, the necessary vitamin supplements should be given (chelation should be performed). Support should be provided with neuraltherapy.

Amalgam fillings should not be made, and one of the composite or porcelain fillings should be selected after removal.

Amalgam filler is a very durable and economical filler, but its appearance is not aesthetic. Amalgam filler is prepared by mixing a powder consisting of 70 percent silver, 25 percent tin, a small amount of copper and zinc with mercury.

The mixture is piled into the cavity prepared by the dentist, and the filling hardens in a few hours. It is the best filler used today, especially for molars.

Amalgam fillings are also defined as silver fillings. Mercury, which makes up 45 – 50 percent of the mixture, binds metals together, forming a durable filler. amalgam fillings, which have been developed and used for 150 years, have served to preserve a large number of teeth and keep them in the mouth. It is estimated that more than a billion amalgam fillings are made annually.

In a study conducted on dental patients who had amalgam fillings and who came with these complaints and did not respond to treatment, the fillings were removed and it was followed whether there was an improvement in the complaints of the patients. The result is striking; in the first year after the removal of amalgam fillings, the vast majority of patients stated that their condition was very good or good. The result shows that the removal of the amalgam filling has provided an improvement in complaints and a continuous improvement.
