FDA Advises Against Mercury Dental Fillings in High-Risk Groups

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has advised against the use of dental amalgam that contains mercury for certain groups of people who may be at high risk for potentially harmful health effects as a result of mercury being released from the fillings.

These groups are pregnant women and their developing fetuses; women who are planning to become pregnant; nursing women and their newborns and infants; children, especially those younger than 6 years of age; people with preexisting neurologic disease, such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, or Parkinson’s disease; people with impaired kidney function; and those who are known to have heightened sensitivity to mercury or other components of dental amalgam.

Dental amalgam releases small amounts of mercury vapor over time.

Although most evidence suggests that exposure to mercury from dental amalgam does not have negative health effects in the general population, “little to no information” is known about

The FDA warned Thursday that dental amalgam filling may cause health issues for some high-risk groups.

The updated FDA guidance said the filling material could lead to health issues for those with a hypersensitivity to mercury.

Dental amalgam fillings are a mixture of silver, tin, copper and mercury. The FDA and American Dental Association have said for years the material is safe, but advocates have called for a filling material that doesn’t contain mercury since the 1970s.

The FDA’s updated recommendations said dental amalgam is safe for most, but there are some who should avoid the material, including pregnant women and their developing fetuses; women who plan to become pregnant; women who are nursing; children, especially those that are under the age

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) threw up the caution flag for people with silver dental fillings — referred to as “dental amalgam.” The agency warned that those particular fillings have been shown to cause health problems for some high-risk groups such as pregnant women and those with hypersensitivity to mercury.

When the FDA uses the term amalgam, it’s referring to fillings that are a mixture of copper, mercury, silver, and tin. The inclusion of mercury has been a sore point for years for some dental professionals, but both the FDA and the American Dental Association (ADA) were on record as saying the amalgam was safe.

It’s taken almost 10 years for the FDA to raise its hand about the adverse effects of mercury in dental fillings. Finally, in December 2019, its immunology advisory committee revisited the situation and new guidance was created.

World Health Organization is wrong on dental care: Do not delay preventive exams

Ever since the advent of HIV in the 1980s, U.S. dental practices have followed state-of-the-art infection control standards. These are designed to protect patients and dental providers from infectious and contagious diseases, and they are very effective.

COVID-19 has presented the opportunity to revisit and amplify those standards. Even when routine care was suspended, several of our School of Dentistry clinics have continuously provided urgent care. We have compiled a great deal of expertise on providing safe, high-quality care during the pandemic and shared it with dental professionals via free webinars. We have continuously updated our clinical protocols as we learn more about this virus and how to prevent its spread. We know the dental community more broadly is doing the same.

Patients should know that there has not been one single reported case of COVID-19 transmission associated with dental care — none from patient to patient, patient to provider

Johnson Health announces mobile dental clinic to roll out next year | Local News



20200708_lna_news_ppp_p6

The Johnson Health Center in Lynchburg received a loan of between $2 million and $5 million from the Paycheck Protection Program in 2020.




The Johnson Health Center is preparing to expand its dental care services with a mobile clinic that’s set to arrive in January and will help the center reach schoolchildren in Campbell County.

The nonprofit provider was awarded a $300,000 oral health grant last year from the Health Resources and Services Administration, according to COO Megan McCrickard. It’s a three-year grant, and she said Johnson had to dedicate its own money to help outfit the mobile dental unit.

Johnson Health CEO Gary Campbell said the vehicle should arrive in January 2021 and care providers will go through a period of training before it starts holding appointments outside the Rustburg Community Health Center, which provides primary care services to the area.
