To avoid inhaling vapors or swallowing amalgam parts, a rubber dam is used. A special rubber band to isolate the working area, separating the isolated teeth from the rest of the oral cavity and upper respiratory tract.
A special suction reduces the burden of mercury vapors. Amalgam residues and vapors are extracted directly at the work area.
Additional addition of oxygen via a soft nasal probe, facilitates the application of the rubber dam and prevents the inhalation of amalgam dust through the nasal mucous membranes.
Special amalgamators with special toothing are used which prevent heating of the filling material. In addition, the drill is used at low speed. This minimizes the release of mercury vapors.
Priority is given to manually levering out the amalgam filling, as mercury vapors may form during drilling.
