    Joel, what I can see in this picture is an overhang of amalgam on the right
    hand side. What is the danger of this type of filling?

  3. Rather than criticize what is there if I were presented with this
    situation, looking forward, I would remove the old restoration and
    place a new one making sure that the restoration did not impinge on
    the periodontal structures. I would make sure that the new restoration
    did not impact food as that causes periodontal problems.

  4. Standard disclaimer means I was not present when the original work was
    done, nor do I know what conditions were presented at the time.
    Perhaps there was a different restoration adjoining that one, or who
    knows what.

    I do know what I would do if I were presented with that circumstance.
