Fillings

We have become aware of an issue with one of the components found in some white fillings. The component is called “BPA” which stands for Bisphenol A. This component is thought to act like oestrogen and is said to have endocrine disrupting actions.

A new study found that children who received normal white composite fillings appeared to develop small but quantifiable drops in psychosocial function. To put it simply: Treated kids may become moody, aggressive and generally less well adjusted.

At Friendly Smiles Dental we use a German product called “Admira Fusion” which has no added BPA (bisphenol A or B). Furthermore, tests indicate that “Admira Fusion is highly compatible, and works with your body rather than against your body.
