This paper reviews the published evidence supporting amalgam toxicity and clinical techniques that facilitate mercury elimination. A literature review is provided which documents effective mercury elimination strategies to improve mercury toxicity syndromes. Considering the weight of evidence supporting mercury toxicity, it would seem prudent to select alternative dental restoration materials and consider effective mercury elimination strategies if mercury toxicity is present. 
THE TOXIC EFFECTS OF THE MERCURY IN DENTAL AMALGAM FILLINGS ON THE ENVIRONMENT & HUMAN HEALTH

Evaluation of mercury adsorption and removal efficacy of pulverized Chlorella (C. vulgaris)
Chlorella is a green alga consumed as dietary food supplement in pulverized form. In addition to its high nutritional value, it is reported as an excellent detoxifying agent. Pulverized Chlorella hasExpand
Evaluation of Chlorella as a Decorporation Agent to Enhance the Elimination of Radioactive Strontium from Body
TLDR
Results indicated that Chlorella could inhibit the absorption of 90Sr into the blood and enhance the elimination of 90sr from the body through adsorption in intestine. Expand

Osteoporosis and periodontal diseases are common problems among the elderly population. Vitamin D is a secosteroid hormone that is either synthesized by human skin cells under the effect of UVExpand
Biochemical evidence on the potential role of methyl mercury in hepatic glucose metabolism through inflammatory signaling and free radical pathways
TLDR
It is highlighted that activity of key enzymes involved in glucose metabolism is changed, owing to MeHg induced toxicity in the liver, which caused a significant reduction in antioxidant markers like ferric reducing antioxidant power and total thiol molecules. Expand
Garlic, Cilantro and Chlorella’s Effect on Kidney Histoarchitecture Changes in Cd-intoxicated Prussian carp (Carassius gibelio)
TLDR
Active compounds from garlic and cilantro powder have shown the most chelating and antioxidant potential, leading to the evident recovery of kidney architecture, while the response at chlorella treatment was less effective than E2 group and without significant difference compared with E3 group.

THE IMPACT ROLE OF USING DENTAL AMALGAM "SILVER" FILLINGS ON THE CHOLINERGIC AND ENDOGENOUS ADRENERGIC ACTIVITY
The effect of silver dental amalgam fillings on cholinergic activity was investigated through measurement of AChE activity using UV-Vis spectroscopy by Ellman modified method. Results demonstratedExpand
Metal concentrations and potential health risk in clam (Meretrix lyrata Sowerby 1851) tissues from East Java Coast, Indonesia
TLDR
The presence of Hg, Cu, Cr, Cd, Pb, and Zn in clam from the East Java Coast (EJC), Indonesia, is reported, indicating that these metals could be harmful to consumers (particularly non-carcinogenic impacts). Expand
Harmful Interactions of Non-Essential Heavy Metals with Cells of the Innate Immune System
In trace amounts, some heavy metals are essential for optimum health, while exposure to others, which are non-essential, presents the potential hazard of acute or chronic organ toxicity. Cadmium,Expand
Protective effect of lycopene against mercury-induced cytotoxicity in albino mice: pathological evaluation.
TLDR
In vivo results showed that the lycopene supplementation decreases cytotoxicity induced by mercury and its protective role is dose-dependent and weight gain increased depending on dose of applied lycopenes. Expand

TLDR
Although dimercaprol is contraindicated in organic mercury exposures, meso-2,3-dimercapto-1-propanesulfonate may be used to chelate all species of mercury. Expand

TLDR
Therapies for assisting the reduction of a mercury load include the use of 2,3-dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) and 2,1-propanesulfonic acid ( DMPS), and additional supplementation to assist in the removal of mercury and to reduce its adverse effects is discussed. Expand

Evaluation of the safety issue of mercury release from dental fillings

  • Medicine

  • 1993
TLDR
On the basis of present data, medical researchers do not make any claims that amalgam mercury is the cause of a specific disease, but experimental pathophysiological evidence in sheep and primate models leads us to conclude that human health consequences might result from continuous exposure to mercury at levels released from mercury fillings. Expand
Human exposure to mercury and silver released from dental amalgam restorations.
TLDR
In 35 healthy individuals, the number of amalgam surfaces was related to the emission rates of mercury into the oral cavity and to the excretion rate of mercury by urine, and a high interplay between the variables was exhibited. Expand

TLDR
Comparison of pre- and post-vaccination mercury levels showed a significant increase in both preterm and term infants after vaccination, which was significantly higher in preterm infants as compared with term infants. Expand

TLDR
Animal and human experiments demonstrate that the uptake, tissue distribution, and excretion of amalgam Hg is significant, and that dental amalgam is the major contributing source to Hg body burden in humans. Expand

TLDR
The present DMPS challenge test did not differentiate between patients with or those without complaints self-related to their amalgam fillings but did confirm the higher mercury values in patients with dental amalgam. Expand
