    Default Dental Composites for Kids: Even Worse Than Mercury Amalgam?

    Research published in the journal Pediatrics indicates that some dental composites -- long promoted as overall safer than mercury-based amalgams -- are having a significant negative impact on the psychosocial functioning of children.

    The study used data from The New England Children's Amalgam Trial, which, surprisingly, found that children randomized to amalgam restorations had better psychosocial outcomes than those assigned to bisphenol-A based epoxy resin composites (bisGMA) for tooth restorations. The new analysis aimed to "examine whether greater exposure to dental composites is associated with psychosocial problems in children."

    "While reducing or eliminating exposure should be the first priority, there are natural substances which have been studied to reduce bisphenol A toxicity either through enhancing its elimination from the body, or by enhancing its degradation. One of the most interesting examples are probiotics." I guess if you want to really be safe you need to be rich and go with gold fillings.
