 Amalgam Fillings Lawsuit

Has there ever been a successful claim for damages against a dentist or a
dental association because of an allergy to the mercury in amalgam
fillings.

Many thanks in advance for any information,

So was the Dalkon Shield, {*filter*} Implants, Urea Formaldehyde Insulation,
etc. etc., before the lawsuits. Just because a product or device is in
widespread use, doesn't make it safe, does it?

If Iwan was actually a lawyer "drumming up business," he would have ready
access to the legal archives to answer his question, wouldn't you agree?

Perhaps Iwan's question deserves a more appropriate response than was
given.

I personally stopped placing amalgams when I read that the ADA's response
to scientific research which showed increased strains of antibiotic
resistant bacteria in the test group of monkeys who had amalgam fillings
placed was to say "well that research wasn't done on humans."

The ADA tells us that amalgams are safe, yet we are supposed to store
s{*filter*}in a sealed glass jar under water.  Let me see if I have this
straight.  There are two places where the storage of amalgam is safe:

1. The Jar
2. Our patients' mouths.

I wish the atty a lot of luck with this case.  Amalgam has been banned in
pregnant women in Germany, Sweden and Denmark.  Yet an April '95 ADA
article denies these facts, and keeps insisting that Hg is inert in the
mouth.  What public interest groups are holding them back?  Dental
manufacturers?  The Insurance industry?  Your guess is as good as mine.

Yours for quality dentistry,

Steve Markus

Why would you think I'm not really a dentist?  There are vast numbers of
dentists who don't place amalgam fillings anymore.  The ADA is not
telling anyone the entire story.  I'm sure that insurance and
manufacturers lobbies have a lot to say about how we end-up practicing.

My patients are educated, and then given the option of having posterior
resins, or crowns, or inlays.  If then want Ag, they can see my associate,
 although I'm sure once she gets done reading the book I'm reading now,
she'll probably discontinue amalgam use as well.

Don't let the bureaucrats do your intelligent thinking for you.  Get all
the information, and then make your own decisions.

Hg is a known toxin.  How can so many people be so naive as to thing that
once it's placed in the mouth it becomes inert?

I have already had a lengthy correspondance with him over this issue.As I
said to him to sue you have to prove
1 damage was done.There is no undisputed evidence to say that amalgam in
the general population causes health problems.
2 negligence. In the past there has been no alternative to amalgam.To
leave caries would have  been negligent.There are now some improving
alternatives to amalgam but for me and for a great no. of dentists there
are situations when the risk benefit ratio still heavily weighs in
amalgams favour.
I can if you want send you copies of all the correspondance.Any question
deserves a courteous reply but sometimes it seems that the questioner
only wants one particular answer corresponding to his own viewpoint.

I am a dentist in ny.  Would you please share with me the name and author
of the book you mentioned re: mercury?  I would be very interested in
reading it as well.  Thanks.

Robin writes: I wonder what this propaganda is called:

The book is called "There's a Hole in your Head".  I agree Robin that
it's propaganda.  But the ADA offers no support for its statement that
Amalgam is safe, and it also makes us store s{*filter*}metal under water in a
sealed container.  Why?

I have a difficult time reading books that look like the author paid all
the publication costs.  However, we are all entitled to our differing
points of view.  In my own experience, I have opted out of placing any
Amalgams, and know of many others who have done so as well.  Only time,
and research, will determine who was on the right side of the decision.  
However, I would rather err on the side of caution.  Additionally,
posterior resins placed carefully are holding up very well.  I use a dam
for most of the placements, and feel quite comfortable that these
fillings will last almost as long as amalgam, plus, the patient senses
the additional care and artistry that go into our endeavors.

You can tell a lot about a person by his habits.  Take for example a
person who posts to a usenet group and insists on using all capitals.  We
are not deaf.  You may feel that this gets your point across on PRODIGY
but it is absolutely not needed on the internet.  As a matter of fact on
in any other newsgroup you would be flamed to within an inch of your
digital life.

Please, in order to be taken seriously, conserve bandwidth, and not end up
on everyones kill-file list tone down your rhetoric by avoiding the caps
lock key.
