Hello sir, yes we can remove amalgam respective of the condition of the amalgam and the teeth too, if you have any kind of pain or sensitivity it's mandatory to remove. Sometimes they serve you for good time but still it's good to change it over a period of time. We do use rubber dam to remove them.
