Course Objectives (1 CE Credit)
This course covers the steps required to achieve clinical success with crown cementation. The technical and clinical aspects of each of the major classes of cements will be discussed, along with the selection, preparation and bonding requisites, for both tooth surface and restoration. Also included is a discussion of bioactivity and the cements that fall into this category.
By the end of this course, you will gain in-depth information on what materials are available and how to select and use the appropriate ones to provide long-lasting restorations with minimal or no sensitivity for your patients.
- Describe the latest trends in dental cementation.
- Identify the indications and usage for each class of cements.
- List the appropriate measures we must take regarding both the tooth and the restoration.
