Re: Is there an option for a large silver filling
DON'T take it out if it is new. Removing a big amalgam leaves too much wreckage. Keep it a few years and then crown the tooth if it acts up.
Amalgams are not good but once in leave them; removing a big back amalgam is even worse for the tooth...it will most likely chip off the side.
Drilling out a fresh amalgam is going to expose you to LOTS of mercury also...another consideration.
Feeling "low" is okay...it's the "high" amalgams that pose the problems.
