Dental cementation: state of the art and clinical update

Roberto Sorrentino

Which luting option for which prosthetic material

The cementation of a prosthetic restoration represents the final step of prosthodontic clinical procedures and the beginning of the clinical service of the restoration. Thus, besides providing retention and seal, cementation has to guarantee stability and longevity of prostheses over time.
Nowadays, several cementation systems, conventional and adhesive, are available for clinicians, with specific characteristics and indications. The selection of the the most appropriate luting agent is not always a simple and univocal choice and, very often, dentists are biased by marketing incentives and clinical trends. On the contrary, the selection of cement type and luting technique should be performed considering the needs of each clinical situation, carefully evaluating the type of restorative material and the physical and biological characteristics of the cementation substrate.
The webinar is aimed at providing clinical tips validated by the most recent scientific literature to select properly both the luting agent and cementation techniques either on natural teeth and implants.
