Re: Clarifying Q. on Dental fillings

  Dear Vivian:
  First I'de just like to say to everyone on this list that the only 
  reason I am sending this to the whole list, besides Vivian, is 
  because her last reply was to the whole list.  Frankly, I don't see 
  any relevance between an amalgam or composite filling and dioxin.  
  This is my personal disclaimer as I have already been slandered once 
  by someone on this list for responding to personal issues.
  According to Raymond Trevison D.D.S., of Westwood, NJ, the 
  alternatives to Bisphenol A ("Composite Fillings" or white fillings) 
  and Mercury ("Amalgam Fillings" or metal fillings) are few and 
  expensive.  At this time, Dr. Trevison has heard of either a Japanese 
  or Swedish (wasn't sure) company that is coming up with a non-mercury 
  metal filling. But it is not available yet. One can also have the very 
  pricey alternative of gold fillings.  The last alternative, he 
  suggested, is to brush and floss extensively and not even end up 
  there in the first place.

  Dear Anita,
  You are very lucky if your dentists are so knowledgeable - my friend has got
  her dentist (in the UK) very concerned about this issue (dentists in the UK
  generally do not know anything about these issues as far as i know) and it
  is her dentist who wants to know what alternative there may be to bisphenol
  a, so she can offer her patients a reasoned choice.
  Hope this clarifies my question
