ABSTRACT
The article presents a discussion of the failure of dental amalgam restorations. The question is raised of whether amalgam failures are caused by the alloy or by the operators creating the alloy. Several physical characteristics of amalgam are discussed, including plasticity, tamping, and condensation.
