While amalgam fillings were frequently referred to as “silver,” dental professionals were referring to the color, and certainly not the contents. Those fillings are mercury, and they are highly toxic. Now, about half of American dentists are mercury-free and the general population is starting to take note on the dangers of the dental amalgam mercury fillings in their mouths.
Mercury found in dental amalgam fillings has been an issue within the dental community and beyond for many years.

This means that with each chew and dental drill comes an emission of mercury gases, leading to numerous health problems.
