An amalgam (mercury filling) consists of the following:
Looking at the breakdown above, if mercury actually leaches from a filling, after a 10-year period the filling would logically be 1/2 of its original size or less. Has anyone ever experienced the filling actually disappearing?
Quote: “Dentists who purport to treat health problems by ripping out fillings are putting their own economic interests ahead of their patients’ welfare. The false diagnosis of mercury-amalgam toxicity has such harmful potential and shows such poor judgment on the part of the practitioner that CU believes dentists who engage in this practice should have their license revoked.”

Quote: “Mercury is a component of the amalgam used for ‘silver’ fillings which also contain silver, tin, copper, and zinc. When mixed, these elements bond to form a strong, stable substance that does not contain metallic mercury. Very sensitive instruments can detect billionths of a gram of mercury vapor in a person’s mouth with amalgam fillings. However, there is no evidence that this vapor is absorbed into the body or causes any adverse health effect.”
