Not every dentist is trained to remove mercury safely. In the photos below here, the mercury filling…

Sometimes, the expansion and rigidity of old, large mercury fillings like this can cause fractures that can extend into the nerve (requiring a root canal) or down the root (requiring an extraction).
This photo illustrates how a small mercury filling fracture can end up cracking your tooth. As a metal, mercury can expand and contract in different temperatures. This, along with other pressures (biting, grinding of teeth during sleep, etc) can stress the tooth such that hairline fractures can start to appear, and then can propagate through the root.
