Cementing Restorations - Proven & Successful!

Product Details

Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD

The past decade has had far more crowns and fixed prostheses breaking or coming off in service than in previous years, and postoperative sensitivity and high recurrent caries are still present in some practices. WHY? Cementation techniques differ for the various crown materials. This video includes selection of the best cements and successful cementation procedures for the following:

  • Class 4 combinations of 3Y (tetragonal) and 4Y-5Y zirconias
  • Class 5 (tetragonal), 3Y zirconias
  • Zirconia-based restorations
  • Lithium disilicate (IPS e.max)
  • Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal
  • Full metal
  • Polymer-based
  • Cementation over screwed-on implant abutments

Also included are procedures for tooth desensitization/disinfection, potential occlusal challenges and complications, prevention of future caries activity, complications related to patient age, and esthetic needs related to cementation.  Select the best cement and materials for each clinical situation and use the cements with optimum techniques and optimum expected clinical longevity!
