The government should abandon a 35-year-old system for approving most medical devices in the U.S. because it offers little to no assurance of safety for patients, a panel of medical experts concludes in a report Friday. The surprise recommendation from the Institute of Medicine panel calls for a massive reworking of how the government regulates medical devices. Dental Amalgam Fillings are considered a medical device.
When covering the 2010 FDA dental products panel hearing on the safety of dental amalgam fillings, the press widely promoted the "red herring" comment from FDA panelist, Susan Griffin (of the EPA). The comment was directed at the assertion that the Fawer study should not be relied on for the basis of a risk assessment because many of the workers in the study were also exposed to chlorine, which inhibits uptake of mercury (up to 40%).
The American Dental Association sent a critique of Mark Richrdson's dental amalgam risk assessment to the FDA and described it as "seriously flawed". Yet there are so many inaccuracies and falsehoods one must wonder if the ADA even bothered to read the risk assessment as their critique is so offbase as to render their opinion uninformed and obsolete. In light of their intent to misinform the FDA, Dr. Mark Richardson responds to the ADA critique with this rebuttal.
In December 2010 the FDA convened a dental products panel hearing on the safety of dental amalgam. Since that time, Dr. Raymond F.
