Dentistry Now Faces a Toxic Lead Problem from China

It is really quite ironic that after dealing for 150 + years with the potential health risk from adding mercury to dental fillings, there is now a threat of lead poisoning due to the ever-increasing tendency to outsource our dental laboratory work to China and other countries where our own FDA has little to no control.  To get the full story from the Chicago Tribune go to the following web site:  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/chi-dental-lead-webmar05,1,3943982.story. The lead story is just one more example of our ongoing saga of “Poisoning from China”. If your dentist doesn’t know where the materials come from, you had best shop your dental work around. There’s really no end to the creative ways that unscrupulous individuals will employ to exploit the trust and assumptions of well meaning dentists and the American consumer. Someone once said, if you don’t know the formula then your health depends upon you getting to know the philosophy of your dentist and his supplier. In all matters we never outgrow our need to know.
