Long-Lasting Dental Amalgam Fillings in King of Prussia, PA

When you are affected by tooth decay, the standard treatment involves removing the decay and filling in the teeth with some dental materials. One of the most popular options is amalgam fillings. If you are suffering from tooth decay or need to replace silver fillings here in Pennsylvania, King of Prussia DentalTM Associates is one of the best local general dentistry services you can call.

What Are Amalgam Fillings?

Amalgam fillings involve removing decayed portions of a tooth that leaves an empty cavity, which is then filled with amalgam fillings. Amalgam is prepared by mixing powder alloy (usually made of silver, copper, or tin) with mercury into a paste or putty. It has a silvery color which is why it’s also referred to as “silver fillings.” Once it is applied to the hollow cavity in the tooth, it hardens quickly.

After the decay is removed from a tooth, leaving the cavity open will make the tooth vulnerable to more complications. That’s why it’s necessary to cover up the cavity with amalgam fillings, which helps to maintain the tooth in a natural state and protect it from further damage.

Are Amalgam Fillings Safe? Do They Need to Be Removed?

There have been concerns over the use of mercury in amalgam fillings. But the exposure to mercury through amalgam is minimal and doesn’t pose any significant risk to an average healthy person. Amalgam fillings are safe to you, which is why they are still approved to use in dental services.
