Danger Is Not The Mother Breastfeeding Dental Fillings With Amalgam Fillings?
Yesterday, yesterday I patched my left back tooth, and the doctor gave me a gray patch, because I am a mother who is still breastfeeding (breastfeeding mothers) about the material used to patch my teeth is safe or not for me and my breast milk .. ?? thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. Amalgam as an ingredient used for dental filling, does indeed experience the mercury content that we all know should be avoided, especially for pregnant women.
However, the mercury content in the amalgam which is then ingested is not much, only a part and is not dangerous, and of the small portion, only a small portion of it then enters breast milk, so it is not dangerous for the baby even if you are breastfeeding. So in conclusion, you do not need to worry about your condition or your child, because so far breastfeeding is not a contraindication or barrier to dental filling procedures with amalgam.
In addition, multiply the consumption of vegetables and fruit, avoid cigarette smoke and pollution, manage stress well and take regular breaks, so that the milk you are expending is more high-quality. So, hopefully answering your question.
