Conventional restorative treatment with amalgam relies on the use of electro-powered, cost-intensive dental equipment. Such equipment includes highs-peed hand pieces that are utilized to remove large amount of healthy tooth tissue in order to create under-cut areas for micro retention, required for placing a successful amalgam filling. Such form of treatment is highly invasive, resulting in discomfort and subsequent patient dental fears, and also depends on e.g. electricity supply that is often unavailable under developing country conditions.
