Bisphenol-A & BIS-GMA
The tooth-colored resin materials many dentists use to fill cavities nowadays tend to contain Bisphenol-A, which is a controversial chemical that disrupts the body’s endocrine system. As an endocrine disruptor, it has been linked to depression and anxiety. Bis-GMA is the product of bisphenol A and glycidyl methacrylate that undergoes polymerization. It is used as a bond implant material, as well as the resin component of dental sealants and composite restorative materials. Bis-GMA has been used for most dental fillers for more than a decade now.
VOCO: BPA & BIS-GMA FREE
Just as the foods you eat affect your health, the materials used in your dental care also impact your entire wellbeing. Our dentist is committed to only using products and materials that have been proven to be non-toxic and safe for use in the human body. Our office uses the only product on the market that is BPA & BIS-GMA FREE called VOCO. VOCO is an all-ceramic based material used to restore the natural teeth. It is fabricated with materials that do not incorporate classic resin monomers (which contain BPA) and eliminates the risks associated with silver amalgam fillings.
