A dentist said that, in general, none of the toothless (composite) or non-homogeneous metal restorations (amalgam) should be unevenly different for life, if they are properly inserted.
The dentist Ali Morseli explained in a statement about the use of dental restoration methods. In general, none of the toothless (composite) or non-homogeneous metal restorations (amalgam) should be unevenly different in life, if they are properly inserted.
He said that the tooth-colored restorations, because they are sensitive to the smallest amount of saliva and contamination when filling the teeth, may be technically more difficult and difficult to use, said the same sensitivity to teeth filling with these materials It may cause the life of the teeth filled with these teeth to be reduced due to problems encountered during treatment. But, in general, the application and proper use of both types of restoration are not significantly different.
Is amalgam harmful?
“It’s true that there is a combination of mercury amalgam, but this mercury is in combination with other substances, and it does not cause poisoning or problems,” Merselli said in response to the question “Are these substances harmful to health?” There is no evidence of the harmfulness of amalgam restorations, and amalgam is still a global standard for filling in many countries, including the United States.
Referring to the fact that amalgam is banned in Europe, the dentist has sometimes said there are several reasons why amalgam is not acceptable in Europe. First, because of environmental reasons, the government has a very severe crackdown on wastewater and amalgam residues. Because it infects the environment. The second problem is that many insurance companies pay the costs of amalgam treatment that they can not pay. Amalgam is still recognized in many countries, including the United States, and the American Dental Association still recognizes amalgam as a standard filling material.
Fill or fill teeth?
The dentist added that some patients think that filling and covering the two categories is separate. While all the teeth to be coated, they must eventually be filled in and the coatings need a core filled with clay (blind). All teeth that root canal (needle-free) need not be coated, but in most cases, this need exists.
He said: “After a good root treatment, a good coat can last a long time.” However, some teeth, such as corneous tissue, are very small or weak, they must be reconstructed from the beginning using the post and the coating.
Merselli stated: After root canal treatment, the root canal (endodontist) is dressed on a temporary tooth filling agent. In the next step, this stuffing material (which is often white) is extracted and filled with permanently filled material or eventually coated.
