Q.

Composite fillings

Do composite fillings in use today contain Bisphenol-A (BPA) ?

What composite material brand name do most local dentists use?

I am concerned about the toxic effect of BPA leaching.

There are 50-60 brands of composite materials in use.
All composite materials that are approved by the FDI or other dental associations are safe to use.
