 Mercury Poisoning from Dental Amalgam

What is the current wisdom on the effects of mercury
in dental amalgam on long-term health?  Wouldn't the
effects be similar to other heavy-metals such as lead-
poisoning?

Thanks in advance,

The current wisdom is that people don't get mercury poisoning from
dental fillings.  The effects of mercury poisoning, a well known
clinical entity have some similarities with other heavy metal
poisoning and cause the same sorts of problems.  Mercury poisoning
does not cause diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis.

I can only comment on my experiences.  I have a mouthful of
mercury amalgam fillings.  Have had for 30 years.  Last
occupational health exam I had included {*filter*} level checks for
heavy metals, and mine was quite low for Hg (and everything
else, too, thank heavens!).  Don't remember the exact number,
but it was about 1% of the level they start worrying about.
