Could you please give information on the percentage of mercury in dental amalgam in modern practice? Previously, it was~ 50%.
According to the U.S Food and Drug Administration, dental amalgam is approximately 50% elemental mercury by weight (http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/ProductsandMedicalProcedures/DentalProducts/DentalAmalgam/ucm171094.htm).
