2. Restorative Instruments


If a matrix is required for intermediate restorative material (IRM), the preceding materials and rules for amalgam restorations may be applied for it also. Intermediate restorative material is the restorative material used in most temporary restorative procedure cases. The IRM will be mixed on a parchment pad with a stainless steel spatula. The techniques and standards for mixing IRM have already been discussed in a previous subcourse. After the assistant has mixed the materials, the dentist will place it in the preparation with the cement plugger of his choice. Intermediate restorative material is finished with the same instruments used to finish amalgam restorations.
