Old Silver Amalgam Fillings

If you are still sporting 15 or even 20 year old silver amalgam fillings chances are you are dealing with cracks, breaks and leaks. Even if your fillings are only 7 to 10 years old you could be having the same issues.

The bottom line is silver amalgam fillings contract and expand over time because of temperature changes. This means they won’t be sealing out the decay like they used to.

Sadly, if there are leaks, cracks or breaks in your fillings the rest of the tooth is susceptible to damage. When that happens you’ll have more decay to deal with.

Once a filling starts to leak it will only get worse. When it gets worse it could leak toxic mercury into your system.

Although the FDA and the ADA have both said amalgam fillings are okay they aren’t saying anything about leaky old silver amalgam fillings.
