Cavity Fillings & Behavior

Posted: Updated:

Could cavity fillings effect your child's behavior?

Researchers from Harvard Medical School want to know.

Data collected from hundreds of children was used to compare tooth-colored fillings made with BPA derivatives -- and fillings made with other materials

The study found children with tooth-colored fillings were more prone to anxiety and depression.

However, authors of the study say  these results do not prove BPA causes any behavioral changes.
