    The post-amalgam revolution has begun!

    As dental amalgam is phased out of European practices, the search is on for alternative treatments. Last year’s 3M Symposium revealed the minimally-invasive approaches that are now available.


    With the decision to phase out dental amalgam in the European Union, the search for alternative restorative materials and treatment concepts has been initiated. An evaluation of the current situation reveals that many suitable approaches are already available, while some work still needs to be done. This is the essence of the three lectures held during the 3M Symposium titled “The post-amalgam revolution” that took place on Friday, July 27, 2018 during the IADR/PER General Session in London.
