ABSTRACT
This article focuses on amalgam tooth fillings and how they are applied. Amalgam fillings made with high-grade alloys and applied by an able dentist can leak due to air-pressure. The author explains that uniform condensation and uniform force are important in the amalgam filling application to ensure stability.
