Sentimental Verse: DENTAL FEELINGS


Several chemical forms, symptoms various —

Excess mercury: toxin nefarious.

Is it crucial or spurious

(Or even injurious)

To replace old amalgam post-carious?

    The use of amalgam as the basis of dental fillings is reviewed here. Although standard dental amalgam is an alloy of mercury and silver, routine removal of these fillings is not routinely recommended. Ask your dentist.


This poem continues in a three-verse limerick format that we have named 'a brief saga'. You can follow the rest of the story about fluoridation of public water supplies, and also find you way to various other brief sagas, on the sister-blog 'Daily Illustrated Nonsense'; click HERE
