As a holistic dental practice, Dr. Al A. Fallah and the team understand amalgam has no place in our patients’ mouths. And we’re encouraged that the international community is making big strides toward phasing down this mercury-containing filling material worldwide.
During the third Minamata Convention on Mercury in Geneva, Switzerland this winter, delegates from around the globe committed themselves to reducing the use of mercury-tainted products; specifically, mercury-containing dental products. In fact, delegates from Indonesia, Africa, and the European Union discussed processes to not only draw down the use of dental amalgams, but to phase them out completely!
In this newer year, representatives from the United States and more than 100 other countries are accelerating measures to significantly reduce and, in some cases, eliminate amalgam by the time of the next convention in November 2020. The EU alone has banned the use of amalgam among children aged 15 and younger, as well as pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers. We commend the efforts of the convention. Thanks to strength in numbers, we envision a world where the public health and environmental damage done by amalgam is history.
