Salive - métaux amalgame

De nombreuses études ont confirmé la corrosion des alliages dentaires. Garhammer et al ont rapporté que certains métaux comme l'argent, d'or, de chrome et d'autres étaient plus élevés dans la salive des patients avec des restaurations métalliques que chez les patients contrôle. Les recherches a déclaré que «La teneur en métal de la salive est affecté entre autres par des restaurations métalliques intra .*

Grâce à des tests de salive en métal nous pouvons détecter la façon dont les métaux de l'amalgame obturations ou les couronnes sont libérés dans la salive. L'exposition aux métaux systémiques doivent être confirmées par des diagnostics supplémentaires.

Amalgamfillings and Dental Materials - Cause of oral health problems?

Summary
The number of amalgam fillings and dental alloys of 86 female patients were recorded. The salivary and urinary concentrations of mercury were determinated by atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) and the concentrations of various metallic components (silver, copper, tin, gold, palladium, platinum, cobalt, molybdenum, indium, gallium) were analysed by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). The saliva concentrations of mercury were also determinated after chewing gum and the urinary concentrations of mercury and tin 45 minutes after application of 250mg DMPS (dimercaptopropane sulfonate). The salivary concentrations of mercury, silver, tin and the urinary mercury excretion after DMPS correlated significantly with the number of amalgam fillings, In contrast, there was an inverse significantly correlation between the urinary tin excretion after DMPS and the number of amalgam fillings; also between the urinary tin after DMPS and mercury in saliva before chewing. Possibly there are competitive interactions between the urinary excretion of mercury and tin. Dental alloys shows no effects of the mercury release from dental amalgam. Presumable oral galvanic elements do not exist. Our results showed, that the urinary excretion of metals before DMPS is unsuitable to value the metal burden due to amalgam fillings and dental alloys.

Amalgam - hazardous waste in the mouth?

Metals from tooth materials may partially dissolve in saliva and enter the body through the gastrointestinal tract. Amalgam contains over 50% mercury, at least 20% silver and around 10% tin and copper. When chewing, amalgam fillings can release toxic mercury vapors. Tin and lead, for example, can have a damaging effect on the central nervous system, just like mercury.
