Dental Amalgam: Do We Have Enough Proves “pro” et “contra”

Anita Bajsman, Amra Vukovic, Selma Zukic, Selma Jakupovic.


Throughout the history of the dentistry, dental amalgam represents the most often used restorative material. However, the fact that one of its main components is mercury is the cause of the intensive discussions about the safety of these restorative materials and during the last 150 years polarizes the professional and scientific circles. Proamalgamists consider amalgam safe and useful material, but antiamalgamists mark it as cause of the whole spectrum of diseases. The wish of the authors was that, through the presentation of the literature published from the nineties of the last century to date, present the review of this very issue, which still causes the dilemma in the modern dentistry.

Key words: dentistry, dental amalgam, amalgam related illness, amalgam syndrome
