Exposure to Elemental Mercury and Cognitive Symptoms in Dental Personnel,by Bjørn Hilt, Kristin Svendsen, Inger Melø.


Here is Professor Bjorn Hilt’s article at long last! The BADN have printed it on their website instead of the autumn journal (lack of space) I feel that this is better anyway, as we will be able to reach more people. I really hope it provokes enough of a response to start a research project on the dangers of handling mercury for dental personnel in the UK.

Anyone considering removal of their amalgam fillings should be aware that the process is DANGEROUS as it releases highly toxic mercury vapour. It should only be undertaken by an experienced mercury-free dentist using full IAOMT protocols in order to minimise the risk of exposure to mercury.
