Dr. Todd Snyder
Cementation of indirect restorations has not changed substantially over the years as far as materials are concerned. The high demand for fast restorative procedures these days often can mean products that offer lower bond strength, and sometimes even performance. There have been many changes in indirect materials with zirconia restorations being the dentist's primary choice for indirect restorations. There are a lot of questions and concerns pertaining to how to handle zirconia from try in to adjustment and cleaning to cementation.
In this CE webinar, participants will
• Explore how to adjust zirconia restorations
• Understand the various ways to clean zirconia restorations
• Identify adhesion vs cementation principles
• Learn cementation and adhesion techniques for indirect and zirconia restorations

New paper accepted for publication.
Recently, the paper “Can Dental Cement Composition Affect Dental Implant Success?” was accepted for publication in ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering. The paper describes the interactions between different cement classes with cells and bacteria, concluding that Ceramir Bioceramic Implant Cement is the only material, of the materials tested, that can be considered biocompatible as per ISO 10993-5 standards. The three other groups of materials investigated (zinc phosphates, resins, and resin modified glass ionomers) all showed variable degrees of cytotoxicity to the cells.
