Mercury is a downright deadly substance to the human body. When handled poorly and without great precaution, mercury filling removals can make you sick.

Mercury Amalgam fillings break down over time. This allows bacterial infiltration into the tooth and can kill the nerve. The expansion of these fillings leads to cracks in the teeth and fractures. As the mercury fillings breaks down decay usually gets under the filling and works it way to the nerve. This leads to infection, abscesses, tooth loss and pain.
