Not illustrated. 1888 edition. Excerpt: ...of it becomes displaced, the mass ought to be re-6 moved at once; otherwise the filling would be imper-fect. Gold in the form of cylinders and pellets, and when in a non-cohesive condition, may be used so as to prevent decay in some so-called simple cases; but when really fine or first-class operations are to be performed, foil ought to be so carefully prepared, introduced, and solidified that the operator can be positive that each piece has been firmly anchored in The first of these instruments belongs to the set devised by the author for the electro-magnetic mallet, in which chisels can be operated nicely and effectively. f This illustration shows some of the most useful forms of excavators. The dental engine here illustrated (Fig. 87) is so well and favorably place, or has adhered to that already in position, and being certain of this the whole filling can be made solid and uniform in density, and the organ operated upon fully restored to usefulness. The success of an operation, however, depends more on the skill of the operator than on the material used or the means employed. Fillings in the masticating portions of the teeth should be trimmed down even with, but not below, the surrounding edges of enamel, and made concave in the central parts (as in nature), with fine, sharp burs. Burs rather than corundum cones should be used for this purpose, so as to avoid the cutting and thus the change of form of the cusps, which cutting of cusps too often disfigures and impairs the usefulness of the masticating surfaces of the teeth. The final finish of the gold should be done with pumice on points of wood of proper shape held in a mandrel and operated (like the burs) with a dental engine (Fig. 37). known that nothing need be said regarding it, but more
