Amalgamators
When a tooth becomes infected with bacteria, the disease process progresses until the patient finds a way to see a dentist who can help resolve the issue. A dental infection will continue to cause a problem but when it is caught earlier on a simple filling should remedy it and bring things back to normal.
 
A regular dental filling begins with the drilling of the cavity to gain access and to remove diseased tissue. Once the cavity has been prepared a dental filling is taken into the “hole” to seal it. There are different types of filling material used in the dental clinic, but the most traditional filling material is silver amalgam. It is formed by mixing powdered metal amalgam and liquid mercury together. This mixture can be done manually, but if you wish to create a perfect mixture an amalgamator can help you achieve an equally proportioned filling material. This seems quite excessive but it will have a significant value, you will see.
 
Not a lot of dentists use amalgam fillings today, for many reasons, but those who do choose it because they perform rather well and they still present better strength and retentiveness. If you are one of those who still believe in amalgam’s superiority over all other materials, then an amalgamator is going to be a perfect partner.
