Clearly mercury is toxic, but here is my quandry.
I have way over 100 amalgam fillings, top and bottom, past the canines. It is common in my fathers family to
have large #'s of cavities till about 18 and then have almost none. This despite excellent dental care (floride by pill, mouthwash and twice a year office treatments (while still a kid), good brushing, and limiting of foods that cause cavities). From the canines to the front epoxy
was used for the fillings,
(whatever composite that required a light source
to cure, in the 1970's-80). The front fillings have fallen out a few times, but the back only once, in 30 years. I have no crowns or anythng else, just fillings.

So it would seem removing this much amalgam would
render a huge dose of mercury into my body & the cost of this much gold makes this even more not an option. Not to mention the cost of removal and loss of even more tooth material. Comments, please.

With hind sight, what would of been a better option for a kid who has 6 cavities every 6 months, for over 10 years ? Gold seems too expensive on this scale. I suspect Epoxy would
fall out, for me, if used on the back teeth.
