Choosing the Right Composite Tool

Choosing the Right Composite Tool

In restorative dentistry, there are many different materials you have to work with on a daily basis. You need to use composite tools that work with gold fillings, amalgam, and other dental filling material, so it can be hard to choose the right tool for your practice. Here are three things to keep in mind when looking for the perfect dental composite tool.


Price is a big sticking point when shopping for dental composite tools. Some are expensive, but that doesn’t always necessarily mean they’re better. Tools need to be replaced for any number of reasons, so you don’t want to opt for one that will break your budget if you need to buy a new one down the line. You want to find a tool that has a good balance between affordable price and accurate results.


As a restorative dentist you want the best for your patients, but you also want a tool that’s easy for you to use. When working with dental composite fillings, it’s important to look for a tool that can pack and shape the material exactly the way you want it to look. You also want to be sure that the finished result looks natural, meaning you need to be able to manipulate the dental composite products in just the right way. Some tools are bulky or hard to handle, which could make it harder for you to shape your patient’s filling materials.


The best tools in the world won’t do you much good if they break after a single use. A tool’s longevity is important to consider. Look for a dental composite tool that’s durable and doesn’t have any parts that might easily break off or become damaged. You don’t want to take that risk when you’re working with your patients.
