      Hi Cynthia! Here’s Dr.Alyssa’s answer to your question:
      If you have interproximal reduction strips, you technically can. That is, if you can wedge strong enough that you can fit one through. Also keep in mind that the texture of the amalgam will be different. Currently, the contact is so tight I think it may be hard, but yes, that is an option. If you’re looking to purchase it look for long strips instead of short ones, so you can wrap it around the tooth.

    Thank you! ok if i used the strip and the texture of the amalgam change. will i get points against me in the bench test? or it does not matter?

      Best scenario would be to have a good contact without the use of a strip. But using a strip to fix it would be better than leaving it heavy. IF you have time, you should remove the amalgam and redo the restoration though. If you’re short on time, then adjust with a strip.
