Many times, luting a restoration, rather than adhesive bonding is preferred.  As long the restorative material will support a luted protocol, and the preparation presents with adequate retention, this type of cementation is acceptable.  This is especially true with the stronger, higher flexural strength ceramics and metal reinforced restorations. Join Dr. Hornbrook as he discusses the types of materials available and his recommended cementation protocols for the different restorations.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
  • Discuss the ideal adhesive cementation protocol for anterior all-ceramic crowns and veneers

DESCRIPTION:
Today it is possible to replace teeth with implants in one minimally invasive surgical procedure. This is predicated on the realization that osseointegration and bone regeneration can occur simultaneously as a tooth root is replaced with an implant fixture. Furthermore, throughout the healing period the provisional restoration guides soft-tissue maturation to optimum contour, esthetics, and substantiveness. The significant benefit is an anatomically correct site restoration with one procedure—truly a patient-preferred sequence from tooth to implant.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
  • Discuss the evolution of immediate implant procedures
  • Explain the efficacy of immediate implant/immediate provisional restoration as compared to immediate implants without restoration
  • Describe the clinical and patient advantages supporting the use of immediate implant/immediate provisional restoration
