My son is having dental surgery tomorrow morning. He will be under general because of the severity od the cavities. (it has taken almost a year to see the pediatric dentist and get a surgery date!)
My question is which is better (or less bad): silver fillings, or white fillings? They are telling me that while it is obviously my choice, that silver will last longer and there is not a health risk to the silver. I've been a member here long enough not to believe that. But I don't want the white fillings on his molars to fall out and have him need more dental work. He JUST turned four.
Please help me decide what I should do.
