How much mercury is released from common amalgam fillings that much of the world has in their mouths? Amalgam dental fillings typically contain a mixture of 50% mercury, mixed in with silver, tin and copper alloys. Typically, dentists give the mercury content of these fillings little to no thought during the placement and the removal of these fillings since the dogmatic consensus is that there is no danger. Nothing could be further from the truth. In this video, a general dentist uses an objective mercury vapor analyzer (as used in industry applications and by the government) to show just how much toxic mercury vapor is emitted from an amalgam sample in quantities that will shock you!
