In this lecture trainer look into details and possibilities of luting indirect materials for instance to tooth tissue. Dentin is a very complex substance for a long term stable adhesion but it is not impossible to achieve. Starting point are the adhesive principles of dentistry.
Ceramics create, in spite of what may/might be thought, less of a challenge on condition of following the correct technical procedures. Every material requests its own specific treatment. The correct way to treat a substrate makes complicated adhesive (luting-) procedures much easier.
- how to adhere to a substrate micro-mechanical as well as chemical.
- how and with which materials a surface can be prepared for adhesion.
- the characteristics of 10-MDP monomer.
- the distinction between the different dental ceramics.
