Mercurio y salud en la odontología

Abstract: Mercury is a heavy metal widely used by man. It is considered very toxic causing conditions in the central nervous system, behavior disturbances, and renal and sexual disorders. For a century, mercury has been used in the dental practice for its capacity of joining metals (amalgamate), its low cost and its rapid fixing in dental pieces repair. Currently, there is much controversy about the safety of dental amalgams and it has been demonstrated it poses occupational risks to dental practitioners and their assis… Show more

“…Electrochemistry is an advantageous analytical tool that is adaptable to an in-the-field device, in light of its portability, and can exhibit sensitivity and selectivity toward many target analytes. There is only one study in the literature reporting the electrochemical reduction of 4-MMC using a dropping mercury electrode (DME) by Krishnaiah et al, detailing an analytical range of 2.7 × 10 –4 to 1.8 μg mL –1 with a detection limit of 2.2 × 10 –3 μg mL –1 . While yielding favorable analytical responses, a problem does arise with the use of a DME since mercury is widely reported as a harmful chemical and banned in numerous countries. Additionally, there is a need to translate a method like this into that of one which could be used as an in-the-field sensor and potentially be applied to seized samples; consequently, this prior work is unlikely to be adopted as either a laboratory tool or in-the-field sensor and is yet to be properly applied and validated in seized street samples.…”

“…En esta oportunidad se exhibe la aplicación del enfoque por procesos al trabajo de campo de la investigación "Gestión ambiental de la amalgama dental en el departamento de Antioquia", realizada por el grupo Ciencia y Tecnología Biomédica (CTB) de la Facultad de Ingeniería de la Universidad de Antioquia (Colombia) y por la empresa New Stetic S.A. Dicha investigación surge a raíz de la problemática ambiental y de salud que representa el uso inadecuado del mercurio en la profesión odontológica [1,2].…”
