We do know that if you take an amalgam filling which is normally full 50% mercury, and grind on it, mercury vapor will be given off as a result of heating the mixture of mercury and silver and tin. That makes up what is called amalgam, so any dentist in his right mind would take measures to prevent it from being heated up if he had to grind on amalgam. So, normally water and air would be spraying on the amalgam during the process and powerful suction would be held close by to remove pieces and vapors away from the room.
