Now China Poisons Teeth!

5 Questions to Ask Before Getting Dental Work

An Ohio woman became ill because Chinese-made crown was laced with lead, a potent toxic metal, according to an ongoing investigation by 10TV News in Central Ohio.

As much as 20% of the crowns, bridges, veneers, dentures and other dental fixtures used by U.S. dentists are made in China or other foreign countries, according to Newsday. Like other imports, fewer than 1% of dental products are inspected by the Food and Drug Administration, so there’s effectively no cop on this beat. The American Dental Association, at least, is investigating.

Is nothing safe that comes from that country?
