Thanks for your query.
I have read and understood that you swallowed a large piece of silver filling material while dentist was placing the filling.
May I please know a few details so that we can discuss further:
- When did this happen? Just now or long back ?
- Any X-rays done?
If it is done just now, please get the X-ray of the chest and the abdomen.
Take PPI like Omeprazole and Antacid.
Till now, it is not heard to cause any problems, as many have swallowed it inadvertently, It should pass off in stool in a coated way.
Please give feedback so that we can discuss further.
