Most indirect dental restorations are luted to preparations using one of four types of dental cements: Glass Ionomer Cements, Resin Modified Ionomer Cements, Self Etching Resin Cements, and Resin Cements, which require the use of total etch technique and dentin adhesives on the tooth structure prior to the luting process. It is important to note that no cement will perform to its utmost clinically without an adequate preparation that includes good resistance and retention form.
In this webinar, Dr. Lowe will discuss clinical techniques for indirect cementation of both provisional and definitive restorations using conventional and total etch protocols. Provisional cementation will also be discussed as an integral part of the indirect delivery process for preparation protection and tissue management. The participant will come away from this webinar with a more thorough understanding of the cementation process and which cements perform the best when coupled with the variety of restorative materials, both all ceramic and metal based, that are currently available.
