If so, most of the world's population would have died off by now.. So many silver fillings have been placed in the last 150 years, a problem with their use would have manifested itself a long, long, long time ago.

For decades the top pure science medical and dental researchers have studied this issue and all have reached the same conclusion-silver mercury amalgam fillings are safe. Those who say otherwise have no real science to validate their findings. It is true mercury is a poison alone, but so is sodium or chloride, but mixed together they are salt. While no longer popular due to esthetic, it is safe!

Most research finds no relationship between fillings and symptoms of mercury poisoning or other side effects. Eventually, any cavity if not treated, can lead to pain, infection, root canal and even tooth loss. See your dentist for evaluation, x-rays and treatment.
