Does anyone know any info about the mercury in the amalgam (sp?) fillings?

Recently, I was told that it (having it in fillings from cavities) can have a very negative effect on our bodies and nervous systems, so I'm planning on getting mine replaced (nice empty bank account after that) with porcelain.

Has anyone else run into this problem or been told this about mercury? I never had one cavity until 33, and because no insurance some DDS "just to be cautious" filled my mouth with metal, even in the deep grooves where "cavities could occur"---vanity isn't the issue - they're in the molars, I've had health problems ever since - but mabye due to other lifestyles....
What's the scoop on Mercury fillings?

I am so against mercury fillings. I thought that they had been banned in the U.S. Nope. They are in England. My dentist doesn't believe in mercury, but he said that if I took all of my filling out to replace them I could get really sick. He suggested doing one at a time when the fillings needed to be replaced. Years ago I had all of my mercury fillings removed by a dentist, and he replaced them with mercury, which I didn't realize. And so each week that I came there I got sick. I thought that I had the flu. The doctor said it was EBV, but I believe it was the mercury. It took me six months to get well, and even then it was only because I began juicing with 5 raw carrots, 1 glove garlic, 1 rib celery, and a few sprigs of parsley. This not only cures chronic fatigue but takes toxins out of your body. So, If you decide to have all of your fillings removed and get sick, use this preparation. I only did one glass of this a day. Also go to a dentist that knows how to remove the fillings without having them touch your skin.

mercury fillings should be removed. Talk to your dentists about the newer materials.

If a qualified dentist removes them, taking precautions, you won't get sick.

here is an example of this

Good to know. I wish mine were all removed. I should ask him to do this, but I will need to see how he protects the old fillings from getting in my mouth.

dentist can utilize a rubber dam in the mouth. It stops anything from coming in contact with tissue.

The majority of amalgams still now days contain mercury in them, although I think you can request now to have them without. Old ones definitely have them and it absolutely does transfer to your body and causes harm. However, you have to be very careful while selecting a dentist to have them removed. It's a procedure where you can even get more mercury exposure while removing them. After the removal, you might need to get a chelation or any other way to detox (I can recommend other ways to remove heavy metals safely).

i got my amalgam fillings removed, and replaced with porcelin the insurance company only paided up to the amount of the cost of amalgam fillings and the rest would be out of my pocket but it was worth it im not sure, but i swear my face cleared up after the amalgam fillings were removed? almost right away, strange? matter a fact, i wonder if there is any correlation between teenagers having braces and acne? just a hunch because having braces exposes the body to "metal" in the mouth, seems plausible?
