mulling is the final kneading or mixing of amalgam after it has been triturated and excess mercury is expelled; usually performed manually.

Thanks for "mulling"! I knew it but in my native language. :D
I am studying after all released exams and books from my school of dentistry in Europe. Very good books, almost up-to-date with American curriculum!!!
Good luck to all!!! :luck:
