Effect of Surface Preparation on Phase Distribution of Amalgam Surfaces

Academic Journal
Several types of amalgams were prepared with carved, burnished, or polished surfaces. Elemental analyses were made of these surfaces with the electron microprobe and the phase fractions were calculated from these data. The phase distributions were found to vary with the technique of finishing.
