There are a number of reasons why it may be necessary to remove amalgam fillings. Over time, the forces from chewing and biting may lead to cracks in the filling, resulting in small gaps where debris and saliva can gather, causing sensitivity, tooth decay and amalgam removal. Another issue is the health controversy surrounding the use of amalgam fillings because they contain mercury - a highly toxic substance. Scientists and health care professionals are divided as to whether mercury contained in fillings poses significant health risks to either patients or to dentists. In any case, it isdesirable to remove silver fillings and replace with white fillings, purely from an aesthetic point ofview. Having your mercury fillings removed for this reason alone may be your prime factor if you are considering undergoing removal of amalgam fillings in the future.
