Question:
My husband was recently told by a dentist new to us that he should have all of his fillings replaced.

The fillings are twenty plus years old. Is there truth to this or is the dentist just trying to make money? ...Visitor from TN

Answer:
Many dentists promote the replacement of fillings when a filling fails or is very imminent.

Replacing something that hasn't failed doesn't make much sense for some, unless patients or dentists are concerned about the mercury toxin issue.... which continues to be a topic for debate..
