Failure to comply will result in removal of post and banning. The hammer-like working end is large enough to compress the soft amalgam without sinking into it. The nozzle-like member 16 engages the forward end of said attachment 20 and prevents axial 'mov'ement thereof in'a forward direction. Preferred embodiments of this invention are shown on the accompanying drawing in which- Fig. The material of which the condenser holder or attachment should be made is not critical and the same materialwhich is now used inthe making of condensers may be used in this connection equally as well. You can complete the definition of amalgam carrier given by the English Definition dictionary with other English dictionaries: Wikipedia, Lexilogos, Oxford, Cambridge, Chambers Harrap, Wordreference, Collins Lexibase dictionaries, Merriam Webster.
The rod 10 is integrally formed with the base member A and continues upwards in a first arcuate curve 12 and thence, downwardly unto a relatively long base member portion 14. This invention relates to a condenser attach- -ment adapted for application to conventional amalgam carriers. We believe that the policies we have been working along have given us a boost up in our big business and also created a trust of our buyers in our company. This invention relates to a condenser attachment adapted for application to conventional amalgam carriers. The precise shape of the condenser attachment is not critical except that it should be adapted for mounting on a conventional amalgam carrier. Normally, two carriers are used during the amalgam placement procedure.
In this manner a tight fit is provided between the attachment 35 and the amalgam carrier 30. The working ends of college tweezers can be straight or curved, and serrated or smooth. This attachment is a cap shaped affair which is adapted to slip over the end of the barrel of amalgam carrier 30. The arm 23 is distorted or flexed upwardly during pivoting of the lever D and tends to push the lever downwardly. In view of the fact that adapter 32 is itself removably mounted in hole 31 of amalgam carrier 30, the entire unit or assembly, that is, the adapter 32 together with the attachment 20 ;may be attached to amalgam carrier 30 or detached therefrom at will.
Hence, when the attachment is mounted on the goose neck, as shown in Fig. The lever member is pivotally mounted with respect to the handle and by moving the lever, one can operate the apparatus in a condenser position where the rod protrudes from the plunger and in a carrier position where the rod is located within the plunger. The tightly in place thereon as though. It has a knurled portion I! Amalgam carrier 30 has no plunger button or any other type of actuating means corresponding to plunger button 13 of amalgam carrier 11 located at its non-operative end. These carriers have hollow working ends, called barrels, into which the amalgam is packed for transportation. Google has not performed a legal analysis and makes no representation as to the accuracy of the status listed. They are also used to to avoid contamination.
The shank may be provided with any shape other than a cross-sectional circular shape for this very purpose. The lever member D is basically a rocker arm and has a relatively long inclined end 31 which enables one to pivot or rock the lever member to actuate or move the plunger member B with respect to the rod 10 of the member A. I The condenser attachment 20 is shown in section in Fig. It is thus shown that there is provided a combination condenser and carrier apparatus which is simple to use and extremely economical to manufacture as all parts as depicted above can be molded from a suitable plastic or other material. Referring to the top view of the lever member D, there is shown an aperture 40 which coacts with the projections 17 in the base member A when the unit is assembled, as will be explained. The apparatus according to claim 1 wherein said latching member is relatively flexible to enable movement of the same in an amount sufficient to free said clip from said projection.
When more amalgam is required, the user merely pushes the member 15 in the direction of the arrow 80 and hence, releases the clips 32a from the projections 16a and 16b and thus unlocks the mechanism. Straight explorer is bent at 90 degrees. Personally I'm more with the washer disinfector but that's not something we can change due to local regs. In certain other instruments, the combination of the condenser and the carrier render the instrument extremely difficult to use as the practitioner has to rotate the instrument and so on. Hence, said attachment may also be mounted on said adapter and this is shown in Fig. Other patents such as U. As will be explained, when the lever member is actuated, the clips 32a and 32b coact with the projections 16a and 16b on the base member A and lock the lever and hence, the rod in a condenser position.
Still other patents as U. Essentially, the combination instrument consists of a number of parts, all of which are fitted together to perform an amalgam carrier and condenser operation. This goose neck enables the instrument to reach what would otherwise be inaccessible parts of the mouth and more particularly some of the molars. It has a downwardly extending axially aligned projection 36 which is adapted to fit into the hole 31 of the barrel of amalgam carrier 30. We have very good business relationship with our clients.
It is a flattened wedge shaped type of hole which accommodates condenser 38 in'precisely the same manner as does the corresponding hole 25 in attachment 2!! Thus far the instrument described is conventional in every respect. Attachment 39 has a tapered hole 31 formed therein which corresponds to the tapered hole 25 of attachment 2! One can then remove the locking member C to thereby release and remove the additional members. The member 50 has an aperture at one end which enables insertion of the rear portion 14 of member A into the aperture. There presently exists many amalgam carriers which are lever activated and so on. The dental amalgam carrier condenser apparatus according to claim 1 wherein said rod base member, said lever member, and said plunger member are fabricated from a plastic.
A similar action occurs for clip 32a and projection 16b. Removably mounted in said tapered hole 25 is a condenser or plugger 26. It comprises a small fitting which has a crylindrical hole formed therein, the cross-sectional dimensions of the hole corresponding to the cross-sectional dimensions of that part of the goose neck l5 which it is shown to engage in Fig. If you have a link or an image you want to post, please select Submit a new text post or it will get caught by the spam filter. Interdisposed between the two flanges 21 and 22 will be two prongs associated with a lever member D to be described. The lever member D is positioned above the base member A with its forked ends 30 and 35 located between the space of plunger B as provided between flanges 21 and 22. Many carvers were designed for carving specific tooth surfaces.
Condensing Instruments To deliver the amalgam to the cavity preparation and properly condense pack it, the dentist will use a variety of instruments. A dental amalgam carrier, condenser apparatus, comprising: a a rod carrying base member having a front section defining a rod with an arcuate central section coupled to a relatively cylindrical rear section, said base member including a transverse latching member extending therefrom, said transverse latching member comprising a planar member having a projection located on one side thereof, with said projection extending from said side and relatively transverse to said planar member, b a lever member pivotally mounted with respect to said base member, said lever member including a clip mechanism which moves as said lever member is pivoted and positioned to coact with said latching member in a first position to lock said lever member with respect to said base member in said first position, said clip mechanism having a front section adapted to coact with said projection in said first position to cause said front section to latch upon the surface of said projection, c a plunger member coupled to said lever member and having a central aperture, with said rod of said base member located therein, said plunger adapted to move as said lever member moves and to lock when said lever member in said first position to cause said rod to extend from said plunger member defining a condenser position, and to cause said rod to be within said plunger when said lever member is in a second position different than said first to define a carrier position whereby amalgam can be carried by said plunger when said rod is within said plunger and discharged when said plunger is moved to said first position by said lever member. The precise shape of the condenser proper is not critical, except that when it is mounted by means of the condenser attachment on the amalgam carrier, its position and shape relative to the amalgam carrier which now becomes its handle should in all respects be conventional. The aperture of lever D is seated within the projection 17 of member A. This renders the instrument unusable. In this manner a tight fit is provided between the attachment 35 and the amalgam carrier 30.
