"The main item was the dangers of mercury in teeth amalgams"


The evidence as far as I understand it is fairly conclusively that there are no dangers to patients from mercury amalgam.
Although some of the Nordic countries felt that while there was no risk to patients, the regular exposure of dental practitioners could bump them into some level of risk and banned it for those kind of reasons.

Pending any convincing evidence to the contrary I will be utterly sanguine about the fillings I and hundreds of millions of others have and will rate those who warn of dire harm as being in exactly the same vein as any other delusional group, whether 9/11 conspiracy theorists or homeopathists.
