- Dental amalgam fillings continuously emit mercury vapors and these vapors are absorbed and retained in the body - particularly the brain, liver, lungs, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract.

- More mercury is released when chewing, brushing, and drinking warm/hot drinks.

- Mercury is also released during placement and removal, exposing both dental professionals and patients to vapors.

- Effects of mercury exposure depend on the individual and are exacerbated by factors such as sex, allergies, and genetics.
