International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology is a 30 year old Non-Profit organization that was founded on the basis of scientific research to answer the question is mercury in dentistry is a safe restorative material or not.
Its members have chronicled and promoted the research that has proven beyond a reasonable doubt that dental amalgam is a source of significant mercury exposure, and a hazard to health. It has taken the lead in educating dentists and allied professionals in the methods of safely dealing with amalgam fillings, and safely disposing the waste. It has also led the way in developing more biocompatible approaches in other areas of dentistry, including endodontics, periodontics, and disease prevention. All this while maintaining the motto, “Show me the science!”
And to always seek the safest, least toxic way to accomplish the mission of treatment, to do it while treading as softly as possible on the patient’s biological terrain.
