Twenty individuals with six or more tooth surfaces filled with polymer-based dental materials and twenty individuals without any polymer-based materials where included in the study.

The result suggest that the relative contribution of existing polymerbased dental fillings to total Bispeheny A exposure is low.

The study is published in the journal Clinical Oral Investigations
