ADA Calls for Scientifically Accurate Patient Brochure Explaining Filling Choices
Date:10/2/2007

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Dental Association (ADA) House of Delegates called for the creation of a brochure to help patients understand the materials used to create dental fillings and the advantages and disadvantages, such as ease of placement, durability and relative costs of each type of filling.

Although this information has been available to the public for years through the ADA Web site (http://www.ada.org) and other outlets, the association wants to ensure its availability to all dentists and their patients in a consistent, comprehensive, easy-to-understand format.

The ADA particularly wants patients to have accurate information about dental amalgam, a silver-colored alloy made from mercury, silver, copper and tin that dentists have used for generations to fill decayed teeth. Once the most commonly used filling material, it has been surpassed in popularity by tooth-colored composites. It nevertheless remains a safe and valued treatment option for some patients, particularly those needing large fillings in back teeth or who have special needs.

Despite a wealth of scientific evidence supporting the continued availability of amalgam as a safe and effective treatment option, both the mainstream media and the Internet frequently carry confusing and incorrect information about amalgam. The ADA hopes, through production of this brochure, to provide all dentists and their patients with scientifically accurate information about dental materials to aid them in making informed treatment choices.

The ADA's House of Delegates is the legislative and governing body of the 155,000-member professional dental organization, concluding its 148th annual meeting here.

The not-for-profit ADA is the nation's largest dental association, representing more than 155,000 dentist members. The premier source of oral health information, the ADA has advocated for the pu
