Dental Materials Safety Concerns (video)

Dental materials safety: who's responsible?The safety of dental materials has been in the news due to concerns about BPA in sealants and composite and reports of dental crowns manufactured in foreign dental labs that may be contaminated with lead.

So we asked dentists who should be responsible for the safety of dental products. One third said the FDA, one quarter said dental labs should police themselves, and 41% said dentists should take responsibility.

“My local lab is placing ‘made in America’ on all of the return cases for the patients to see,” mentioned one dentist.

“Too many dentists are accommodating low dental insurance payment schedules by buying their dental materials and laboratory fabrications that are too cheap,” complained another. “It doesn’t seem to matter that it compromises the health of the patient.”

    Precedent cases show that dentists can’t rely on the FDA, the ADA, or the insurance industry to offer support in a harmful injury suit.

    The buck stops at the dental practice.

    At the same time, especially considering the bad science, dangerous chemical usage and pharmacological crimes perpetrated against the public, dental patients should ask questions and research materials for themselves before making a decision.
