Dental Materials, Restorative, Mercury
Definition : Restorative dental materials consisting of mercury designed to be combined with appropriate dental alloys (i.e., to obtain dental amalgam) for in situ restoration of the appearance, structure, and/or function of a patient's teeth. Mercury intended for use as a restorative dental material usually consists of liquid mercury appropriate to mix with dental alloys; dental mercury is used in dentists' offices when dental amalgam is not available or in-situ mixing is desirable for other reasons.
