Lots of controversy regarding mercury in the mouth, but so far, no relationship identified with epilepsy.

I feel quite strongly that mercury fillings are toxic. I have been removing them for many years and may patients seem to have a lot of health issue either get better of improve with the mercury fillings removed. I don't believe that the removal caused epilepsy. You might want to look up amalgam (mercury) filling toxicity on the web....Good luck.

There is no clear evidence that there is a link between mercury filling and seizures. I have not been able to find anything in the medical literature to suggest this.
