Previously, our dental clinic used to have dental amalgam or silver fillings to fill in the cavities formed by the tooth decay. The silver fillings contained liquid mercury in it along with silver, tin and copper metals in powdered form. Due to the presence of mercury, chances of mercury poisoning were sky-high. The silver filling had been in use for quite a long time until scientists came up with a new idea to replace the silver fillings. Composite filling or while filling was introduced causing the drawbacks of dental amalgam to be removed.
