An indirect restoration
with inadequate thickness and dimensions is also predisposed to deformations and fracture4.
The quality of an impression determines the quality of the indirect restoration
An ideal luting procedure consists of a stable and long-lasting seal between an indirect restoration
and the tooth, avoiding infiltration and preventing plaque accumulation.
In this research, Frost & Sullivan's expert analysts thoroughly examine the following markets: direct restoration products, indirect restoration
products and dental anaesthesia products.
The double arch impression technique: a solution to prevent supraocclusion in the indirect restoration
The importance of shade selection for an indirect restoration
is connected to the perception of chromatic hues involved in the dental structure.
So both glass ionomer cements and resin based luting cements can be used for cementation of fixed partial dentures or any other indirect restoration
on vital teeth.
1-3) In addition to the presence of photoiniators in their composition, self-curing components are added to ensure an optimal polymerization even when activating light is severely attenuated due to the presence of an indirect restoration
interposed between LA and light-curing unit tip.
3,4 Deterioration of lut- ing material at the circumferential tie of indirect restoration
provides stagnation area and micro leak- age5 which leads to recurrent caries as well as to periodontal diseases.
1] These products were developed to polymerize properly even when a curing light is severely attenuated by the presence of an indirect restoration
interposed between the curing unit tip and RC during light-activation.
Marginal accuracy and fracture resistance are considered crucial factors in the success and longevity of an indirect restoration
Furthermore, the dentist should bear in mind that he is responsible for making a correct prosthetic preparation, thus allowing a correct indirect restoration
to be made by the DPT, and also for not accepting restorations made with inadequate coronary contour.
