They are advantageous to the patient because they save time and increase convenience in dental care by eliminating the need for hand-preparing composite resin (and its associated mess) prior to placing it in a prepared tooth cavity.
This instrument set reduces the need for additional procedures like temporary cementation because work can be easily cleaned off of acrylic instruments which means no more filling appointments.

Common mistakes with the use of a dental amalgam tray instrument set
Failure to wear gloves may contaminate the tray with saliva.
If an amalgam is knocked off but not caught in the instrument, it becomes difficult to find it later, causing contamination inside or outside of the patient’s mouth.
A tray pick-up tool must never be used for any other purpose than to transfer silver alloy materials, which will result in intermixing of various metals and subsequent contamination.
Potential dental accidents include needle sticks from sharp instruments that may transmit pathogens through a needle stick injury or aerosolized particles that can be inhaled and lead to respiratory infections. Hazards also include dangers from electrical hazards such as electric shock and arc flash hazards.
