Bisphenol-A in Dental Composite Worries Dentists

New Health Concerns About Plastic Chemical BPA

Dental Survey ResultsGiven the recent negative publicity surrounding bisphenol-A (BPA), our survey covered dental sealants and composite. One in four dentists is very worried about the safety of these products.

“It doesn’t matter if composites and sealants are safe,” wrote one respondent. “If public perception is that they are not, it is very harmful to dentistry.”

Here are some additional dentist comments on the subject:

  • “The enormous and unexplained increase in the incidence of breast cancer corresponds with the advent of the bisphenol-A introduction into dentistry.” (Michigan dentist)
  • “The cumulative release of BPA from composites appears to be minimal from the available research.” (New Hampshire dentist)
  • “I had fellow church members ask me if they needed to get all their composites removed.” (New York dentist)
  • “I am concerned that we are using a material whose biocompatibility is really unknown.” (New York dentist)
  • “I am particularly concerned about using composites and sealants in children.” (Texas dentist)
  • “Slow news day?” (Georgia dentist)
  • “Forget about bisphenol-A. Resins are far more toxic on a cellular level than amalgam. Are you familiar to amalgam studies showing how cells in a petri dish respond to amalgam? They continue to happily divide. When unset resin is placed the cells die!” (General dentist)
  • “A vegan grilled me the other day. I told him that he was at greater risk from salmonella from not washing his veggies properly!” (Colorado dentist)
  • “I’m more worried about BPA in soda and water bottles. Patients have never expressed any concern.” (Arizona dentist)
  • “Most patients assume that if we are doing something it is okay.” (New York dentist)
  • It’s the amalgam issue all over again. What are all the ‘Bondadontists’ going to tell their patients now?” (Virginia dentist)
