Read in Arabic ( إزالة حشوة الأملغم )
Dental amalgam is a mixture of mercury, silver, copper, tin, and zinc used to repair cavities in teeth. It is also referred to as a "silver-filling" due to its look. Mercury makes up almost half (50%) of dental amalgam in terms of weight.
Enfield Royal Saudia offers dental amalgam treatment and other cosmetic surgeries in KSA.
How does it Work?
How does it
- The dentist first drills the tooth to eliminate decay before putting dental amalgam.
- The tooth cavity is then prepared for the placement of the amalgam filling.
- The dentist then combines the liquid mercury with the powdered alloy to create amalgam putty under the proper safety precautions.
- This amalgam putty is molded and inserted in the cavity after being softened, and it quickly becomes a firm filling.
