Does anyone have any of those amalgam fillings? I have quite a few and I'm a bit concerned about the mercury in them and it affecting my unborn baby. Is this something to worry about? I keep getting a metallic taste in my mouth. I know this can be a weird symptom of pregnancy but I'm 18 weeks now.
They have a tiny amount of mercury in them and release almost undetectable amounts when they are sitting in your teeth (less than you’d get from eating a moderate amount of tuna). The time the most is released is when they are removed, even then it’s neglible
How is your oral health now? Hopefully you don’t need new fillings regularly? The white fillings have questionable chemicals (Bis phenols which can mimic hormones) in them so the best bet is to have no new fillings at all.
My oral health is ok at the moment apart from this one tooth that has a metal filling in it. All the rest with fillings seem OK and I don't need any more doing I don't think. I just have this really weird metallic taste in my mouth and I can't help but think that filling is what the horrible taste is caused by.
