Depends on reaction: Amalgam fillings rarely cause a reaction unless you have an physical allergy to the silver or mercury. Having said that, i haven't done amalgam fillings in 20 years just because i think there are better materials out there for restorations. I would contact your dentist to evaluate your concerns about a possible reaction.
