From self-adhesive to universal luting: what is changing?
When it comes to adhesive cementation, dentists are spoilt for choice between a simplified self-adhesive or a time consuming conventional adhesive luting procedure. We will explain how new universal resin luting materials overcome this problem as they can be implemented as a self-adhesive resin cement or as a conventional adhesive luting.
Depending on the material choice and the clinical situation, many tooth-coloured, indirect restorations have to be adhesively luted. Conventional adhesive luting under rubber-dam, with enamel-etching and dentin bonding, is a highly reliable but time consuming and technique sensitive procedure. Self-adhesive luting composites simplify the adhesive cementation of indirect restorations, as they do not require rubber-dam and no additional pre-treatment of the tooth substrates. However, for low retentive restorations where high adhesion is required, the conventional adhesive procedure is preferred.
New universal luting composites combine the advantages of both luting procedures: they can be implemented as a self-adhesive resin cement and in combination with a tooth primer as a conventional adhesive luting material.
In this webinar we will focus on the indications and principles of adhesive luting of indirect restorations and the mechanisms of self-adhesive, conventional and universal luting. The presented principles and mechanisms will be applied and described in two clinical cases using the novel universal luting composite G-Cem One.
- Learning objective 1: Indications for adhesive luting.
- Learning objective 2: Basic principles of adhesion.
- Learning objective 3: Principles of conventional and self-adhesive luting.
- Learning objective 4: Principles of universal luting.
- Learning objective 5: Clinical procedures of luting zirconia and glass-ceramic with the universal luting composite G-Cem One.
