Amalgam is a material commonly used as a filling material for teeth. It contains the toxic miner mercury. Mercury has been proven toxic and unsafe. The Environmental Protection Agency has noted mercury to be a toxic poison. So why is it still used in dentistry today? Amalgam fillings are less expensive, which can appeal to some patients as well as some dentists
Although it is still legal to use mercury in dentistry, there are certain requirements for the proper disposal of it. Dental offices are required to use a safe filtration and disposal system for the elimination of the material.
