PROPOSAL TO AMEND ANNEX A TO THE MINAMATA CONVENTION ON MERCURY
 Efficient to place: According to a 2012 report prepared for the European Commission, “it has been shown that the time needed to carry out a Hg-free [mercury-free] restoration has reduced significantly as dentists have gained more experience in the handling of Hg-free materials, so that there is currently no (or minor) time difference to perform Hg-free restorations compared to amalgam.”xxix Optimized restorative composites can now save even more time even when dealing with bigger cavities (these bulk-fill composites can be placed and cured up to 4 mm deep and deliver strength and low wear for good durability).xxx Hence, once dentists are adequately trained, on average there are no additional labor costs associated with placing mercury-free fillings.  Longevity: As the 2012 BIOIS report explained, “Given the results of recent studies comparing the longevity of different materials, in the present study it is considered that the longevity of Hg-free fillings is no longer a factor with significant effect on the overall cost difference between dental amalgam and composite or glass ionomer restorations.”xxxi A 2015 assessment by the European Commission’s Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) further confirmed that “dental restorative treatment can be adequately ensured by amalgam and alternative types of restorative material. The longevity of restorations of alternative materials in posterior teeth has improved with the continuing development of these materials and the practitioner's familiarity with effective placement techniques. … recent studies from the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark showed very good long-term clinical effectiveness for posterior resin composite restorations with equal and better longevity than for amalgam.”xxxii Hence, mercury-free filling materials such as composites are associated with no additional costs related to the longevity of the material. (...) xxiv Opdam NJ, Bronkhorst EM, Loomans BA, Huysmans MC, Longevity of repaired restorations: A practice based study, Journal of Dentistry 40 (2012) 829–835 states, “The annual failure rate (AFR) after 4 years for repairs of amalgam restorations was 9.3%, while the AFR of repaired composite restorations was 5.7%.

In populations where longevity is increasing, individuals of working age tend to accumulate wealth to provide for their consumption in old age. (...) The report argues that the potential benefits associated with the second dividend can be reinforced by policies that promote savings in anticipation of the longer retirement periods associated with increasing longevity. Models used to test the impact of the second dividend suggest that its effects can be long- lasting in that the accumulation of savings can increase investment and, consequently, both the capital stock and production, leading to higher income per capita. (...) Although increasing longevity seems to be associated with shorter periods of ill health, as a population ages the number of older persons requiring health care increases markedly.

MAJOR DEVELOPMENTS IN THE AREA OF AGEING SINCE THE 2ND WORLD ASSEMBLY ON AGEING :REPORT OF THE SECRETARY-GENERAL
While birth rates continue to decline, longevity continues to increase. Global life expectancy increased 17.9 years for men and 19.7 years for women over the second half of the twentieth century to reach an average of 66 years. (...) Even in the least developed regions of the world, significant gains in longevity have been achieved, as men and women can expect to live an average of 15 years longer than they did 50 years ago. (...) The results of recent studies show that ageing does not by itself explain why health-care costs have been rising at a much faster rate than inflation almost everywhere in the world, and that greater longevity has little effect on total health-care costs, because the greatest costs are concentrated near the end of life, regardless of age at death.
