Mercury Fillings?!?!?! when on earth did that go up for grabs?
Because mercury is a regulated waste in some countries, its disposal can be costly.
Independent of risk management decisions, and of the economic considerations in restorativedentistry, a sustained reduction in the use of dental amalgam in oral health care provision isexpected across the European Union, the rate of which is dependant on trends in dentaleducation towards the increasing use of alternative materials in place of amalgam and thepossible reduced availability of mercury products in general.Mercury is the major metallic element used in dental amalgam. It is recognized that mercury ingeneral does constitute a toxicological hazard, with reasonably well defined characteristics for themajor forms of exposure, involving elemental mercury, organic and inorganic mercurycompounds. It is accepted that the reduction in use of mercury in human activity would bebeneficial, both for the decrease in indirect human exposure and environmental considerations.
The use of dental amalgam results in environmental exposure to mercury, primarily through itsrelease during amalgam placement and removal, and the handling and disposal of amalgamwaste products in general. Improvements in the treatment of waste water from dental clinics andamalgam waste has generally reduced this exposure. A further source of environmental exposureoccurs through the burial or cremation of individuals with dental amalgam fillings. It should benoted that a significant increase in amalgam usage occurred between 1950 and 1990 that mayresult in a rise in environmental exposure over the next few decades as these individuals die.
Wrinkles may be caused when a muscle tightens. Botox™ is injected through the skin into the muscle. The Botox™ keeps the muscle from tightening. When the muscle can’t tighten, the wrinkle doesn’t show as much.
