You still know people getting mercury fillings ?
I had amalgam fillings in the SADF in the late 1970s. Took the existing fillings out and did them to a high standard. Excellently done and I've never had a problem.
Last week my dentist remarked on the excellent condition and I only needed a clean and polish. I haven't needed treatment for at least 30 years and the military kept excellent annual records on my teeth as I had to have fillings that would not pop out in the water after getting gas caught under the fillings when deep which would then pop out nearing the surface from deep with excruciating pain.
I passed a full diver medical with lung and all other functions aged 50. The doc that used to work in the military recognised me and gave me a full divers medical to see for himself how well I had fared
