FDA Advisory Panel To Review Dental Amalgam

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm215061.htm

The panel will convene December 14-15, 2010.

For many years our own Institute For Health Realities (IHR) was intensely involved in helping to secure funding for research on the safety of dental amalgam, publishing on the topic and arguing before state dental boards and doctor groups against the continued use of amalgam dental fillings. Today, this fight continues through two highly regarded organizations: The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and Consumers For Dental Choice, headed by consumer advocate and former Attorney General for West Virginia, Mr. Charlie Brown.

The IAOMT and Consumers For Dental Choice have pushed long and hard, and with great success, against the really bad idea of placing mercury in the mouths of our people. As a consequence, fewer amalgam fillings are being placed today, but it nevertheless remains the most commonly used restorative material in dentistry. Whoever can afford the better materials routinely get them, but for anyone who is on a budget or who depends upon welfare, amalgam is what they get.

Now, however, with the continued pressure from the wonderful organizations just cited, and with the recent reporting of a link between mercury and the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease, there is now adequate hope that some type of agreement can be reached at the new Advisory Panel discussion that can soon take us on the road to forever change for the better.

Charlie Brown says that “if you are tired of the FDA protecting horses and dogs from mercury but claiming that dental mercury is good for the public health, we urge you to comment now”. You can do this by visiting:
