Are silver (amalgam) fillings safe? What about mercury?

This question seems to come up every so often in the media. We only place materials we believe are safe, whether it's amalgam (silver) or composite (plastic). Each material offers benefits, and has reasons for being used in your mouth. Our doctors, as well as the rest of our staff, attend many hours of continuing education every year to stay up on the newest news in dentistry. Please feel free to discuss amalgam with one of our doctors during your next visit. In the meantime, you can read what the Mayo Clinic has to say on the subject of amalgam safety in the mouth:
