Hollenback H3 Amalgam Plugger Cavity Preparation Condenser

$14.99
  • Condensing Amalgam: The primary function of the Hollenback H3 Amalgam Plugger is to pack (condense) dental amalgam fillings into prepared cavities.
  • Tight Packing: The flat, rectangular ends of the H3 plugger allow for tightly compressing the amalgam material. This creates a dense and strong filling, minimizing the risk of future leaks or fractures.
  • Reduced Air Bubbles: Tight packing with the H3 plugger helps eliminate air bubbles within the amalgam. Air bubbles can weaken the filling and contribute to problems later.
  • Various Cavity Shapes: The H3’s rectangular tip design is suitable for condensing amalgam in cavities with flat or angled surfaces.
  • Double-Ended Design (possible): Some H3 pluggers may be double-ended, offering an additional tip shape for more versatility in cavity packing.
