However, i have had these 10+ years, so i am not sure why they would all of a sudden start producing symptoms now after so many years. What could of caused this to randomly flare up now? I keep reading about being seriously ill to have this happen, so it really worries me.
The effects of amalgams on the amount of mercury in the body have been studied over and over again. No effect was ever found.
This means that your observation is correct: you’ve had those fillings for many years, and (of course) they never caused problems – and they never will cause problems.
Since there is so much scaremongering since the Internet allowed such fear to spread faster then ever before, even more very detailed studies have been performed. Researchers even went so far as to resort to the best testing method available: they took samples of almost all organs of deceased persons (who, of course, allowed this in their will), to rigorously measure the amount of mercury in their bodies.
The result of this study: there is no relation whatsoever between the amount of amalgam fillings and the number of years these fillings have been in the mouth, and the amount of mercury in whichever body organ.
There is also no relation whatsoever between the amount of amalgam fillings and the number of years these fillings have been in the mouth, and the complaints or illnesses that were reported by the deceased before they died.
As usual, you only need to follow the money. Who would benefit from an amalgam scare? The answer is obvious: those dentists who offer the (generally expensive) replacement of amalgam fillings with composite fillings.
Luckily, most dentists adhere to scientific findings, and they keep the best interest of their patients in mind. These responsible dentists do not go after the big easy money. A minority, though, does go for big easy bucks, and they offer needless and useless interventions. Please stay sane. Don’t fall for them.
