Dentsply Urged to Cease Production of Toxic Dental Amalgam

Based in the picturesque countryside of Pennsylvania is Dentsply, a leading manufacturer of numerous high quality dental products. You’ve probably encountered several Dentsply products during your most recent dental check-up. What many Americans do not know, however, is that Dentsply is also the world’s 2nd largest manufacturer of dental amalgam. This metallic mixture may contain more than 50% mercury content, posing a serious risk to patients and the environment. The World Health Organization has cited dental amalgam as a leading contributor to mercury pollution in the world, and new studies suggest these “toxic fillings” may cause serious illness. In this news story, Dentsply is issued a wake-up call by a broad coalition of Pennsylvania activists, American health organizations, and representatives from 23 different countries. Dentsply has been asked to phase-out the production of this dangerous material.
