Amalgamators are small machines that are located in dental offices everywhere. They are an integral part to patient care when it comes to preparing the restorative materials for fillings. The role that they play is small but important, they are responsible for mixing the silver, mercury, copper, and tin that compose fillings with a consistency that humans cannot match. The consistency of the mix is an important factor in whether the procedure can be completed properly, since amalgams that are under or over mixed are either too fluid or too granulated to perform as expected.

These machines are also known as triturators. Although prices vary from company to company, this is a machine that can generally be purchased for no more than several hundred dollars. Since they operate for only short durations of time they very rarely fail, and it can take years of consistent frequent use before they need to be repaired or replaced. Amalgamators come in a few different varieties, and before purchasing it should be determined what is expected out of the machine. Different brands and models operate at different cycles per minutes, with some going as high as 4,400 and some as low as 3,200. Some models can only operate at one speed, while others have multiple speeds. Some are capable of mixing two amalgams at once, on different speed settings. Simple to read LED displays make them easy to operate, and some of them are pre-programmed for added convenience. They are made to be noiseless, so they can operate without disrupting the workplace with sound. They take up very little space, and have built in microprocessors. http://www.medorder.eu/WOODPECKER-Ultrasonic-Built-in-Scaler-UDS-N2...

An amalgamator is probably a machine that one would be surprised to hear is one of the most ubiquitous tools throughout dental offices everywhere. Its main purpose is to create the common alloy-based fillings that are used to treat cavities in patients that need a long-term treatment plan.

The alloy itself is based around mercury, which comprises approximately 50% of the mixture, with silver, tin and copper and other trace elements completing the composite. Dating back to the early 19th century, this mixture continues to be used in the same fillings today because of the low cost of each material, the ease of use, and the high durability and strength of the filling. The popularity of these types of fillings has taken a bit of a dive recently as studies have shown that traces of the mercury is being absorbed through the patient’s gum and mouth, though the implications of the minor toxicity are still unknown. As of now, the benefits of the treatment are being held above any supposed danger of absorbed chemicals. The task of an amalgamator is to simply mix the alloy capsule and form the shape of the filling that will be used to treat the patient. The machine has evolved throughout recent years with advanced LED displays and simple buttons, allowing for even the least-involved dentistry team members to use the machine. The greatest advantages of these types of fillings and the reason that they are still a mainstay in offices today are the benefits they hold over resin and porcelain alternatives. Resin composites typically last for only half the time of the alloy-based fillings while the porcelain composites are much more expensive due to the materials used to form the filling.
