Fargo, ND Dentist - Dr. Jim Lundstrom
Are Silver Fillings Safe?
The answer is yes, no, and maybe, depending on which research and evidence you accept as valid. This controversy has existed ever since silver/mercury fillings (professionally called “amalgams”) were introduced in the 1820’s.
Dr. Lundstrom is an active member with The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology and The International Association of Mercury-Safe Dentists. For more information regarding this subject we highly recommend you visit www.iaomt.com or www.dentalwellness4u.com

On January 27, 2015 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration updated its consumer advisory on dental amalgam fillings. A statement released by an agency spokeswoman states "There is no change in our position". For more information on this subject visit their website at www.fda.gov and search "dental amalgam".
