Dental Amalgam Plugger Double Ended Filling Instruments

  • Placement and Shaping: Composite fillings are tooth-colored materials that are placed in a softer state. Composite filling instruments have various tip shapes designed for placing and shaping the composite material within the cavity. This allows the dentist to create an anatomically correct and aesthetically pleasing restoration.
  • Smooth Surfaces: These instruments have smooth, polished surfaces to prevent them from sticking to the composite material. This allows for smooth and precise placement and sculpting of the filling.
  • Multiple Functions: Many composite filling instruments are double-ended, with different tip shapes on each end. This provides the dentist with more versatility during the filling procedure.
  • Condensing Amalgam: Amalgam is a metal filling material that needs to be packed tightly into the cavity to create a dense and durable restoration. Amalgam pluggers have flat or rounded tips that allow the dentist to condense the amalgam and remove any air bubbles. This helps prevent future leakage and fractures in the filling.
  • Various Tip Sizes: Pluggers come in different tip sizes to accommodate different cavity shapes and sizes. This ensures the dentist can properly condense the amalgam in all areas of the cavity.
  • Durable Material: Dental amalgam pluggers are typically made from high-quality stainless steel. This makes them strong, corrosion-resistant, and easy to sterilize for reuse.
