Controlled items subject to strict accountability and safeguarding are gold solder, platinum foil, and gold, silver, and chromium alloys. In addition, scrap from these controlled items and from amalgam are also subject to the same controls. Certain delegated members of a dental facility control these items. However, all members of the dental care system must be aware of safeguarding precious metals, collecting precious/semiprecious scrap, and accounting for receipt, use, and turn-in of these items. If dental precious metal appliances, such as gold crowns and gold bridges, are retrieved from a patient, they are turned in as precious metal scrap subject to accounting controls.
