2 Uses of dental cements Pulpal protection (liners, bases, varnishes)
Luting cementation (crowns, inlays, onlays veneers) Restorations (temporary and permanent) Surgical dressing (e.g. periodontal surgery)


4 Cavity varnish a thin layer placed on the floor and wall of the cavity to seal dentinal tubules and minimize microleakage. Composition: Natural resin (copal) Synthetic resin dissolved in solvent such as alcohol or chloroform.

5 Cavity varnish Application method:
The varnish is applied in a thin layer The solvent evaporates within 5 –15 seconds A second layer is applied The resin component protects pulp by: Sealing dentinal tubules Reducing microleakage Reduce staining

6 Dispensing and clinical considerations 2 bottles:
Varnish: 90% solvent, 10% resin (copal) Solvent to dilute varnish if solvent evaporates The lid should be kept tightly closed Varnishes have been largely replaced by bonding agents since varnishes wash out quickly

7 Liners/low strength base Calcium hydroxide
Clinical uses: Liner to protect pulp Direct and indirect pulp capping Dispensing: 2 paste system “Self-cured” Base: Calcium phosphate, calcium tungstate, Zinc oxide, Glycol salicylate Catalyst: Calcium hydroxide, zinc oxide, zinc stearate in ethylene toluene sulfonamide Light cured cement: UDMA + Ca hydroxide + barium sulfate filler and low viscosity monomer

8 Liners/low strength base Calcium hydroxide
Set cement is calcium disalicylate Properties: Has an alkaline Ph 9-11(stimulates dentine formation) Setting time: 2-7 minutes Weak compressive strength Thermal insulator High solubility

9 Liners/low strength base ZnO/Eugenol
Uses: Pulpal protection in deep cavities Properties: Weak Sedative effect Little thermal insulation

10 High strength base (>0.5mm)
Function: Insulator Support for restoration Materials used: GIC Resin modified-GIC Polymer reinforced ZnO/E Properties required for high strength bases: High strength that develop quickly Low thermal conductivity Moderate elastic modulus

11 Luting cements Desirable features: Good wettability Good flow
Thin film thickness: 25 µm or less to fill the space between tooth structure and restoration.

12 Restorations Permanent: cements are rarely used as restorations due to: Low strength Low wear resistance High solubility The exception is GIC, used for class V cavities and primary teeth.

13 Zinc oxide eugenol temporary filling

14 Dental cements ZnO cements Glass ionomer cements Resin cements
Compomer cements Hybrid ionomers Zinc phosphate Zinc polycarboxylate

15 Zinc oxide eugenol Advantages: Disadvantages Wide variety of uses
Sedative to the pulp Easily manipulated Disadvantages Low strength High solubility Not used under composite resin

16 Zinc oxide eugenol Some are resin or EBA reinforced
New products are eugenol free “cavit” Properties: Sedative effect on pulp and antibacterial Biocompatible .. irritant if in direct contact with pulp Eugenol interferes with setting of resin Moderate strength Retention is mechanical Water and temperature increase accelerate setting

17 Zinc phosphate Used to be used as a permanent luting agent
Composition: Powder: zinc oxide Liquid: phosphoric acid and water buffered by Al + Zn to slow setting Setting reaction: 5-9 minutes, exothermic, controlled by incremental incorporation of powder into liquid. Cement is porous.

18 Zinc phosphate Properties
Initial acidity with pH of 4.2, becomes neutral after 48 hours. Retentive by mechanical retention sandblasting of crowns or inlays Similar strength to GIC, high CS, low tensile strength. Low solubility once set Fast setting Moisture adversely affects cement

19 Zinc phosphate Manipulation
Powder is dispensed and divided into 4-6 portions Liquid is dispensed according to manufacturer Mixing is gradual at 15 seconds intervals for seconds Large strokes over a large area

20 Zinc polycarboxylate Uses: Composition: High strength base
Final cementation of indirect restorations Composition: Powder: zinc oxide Liquid: polyacrylic acid

21 Properties: Lower compressive strength than other cements Mild acidity Higher viscosity when mixed but reasonable flow Liquid should not be dispensed before needed, to avoid water evaporation and viscosity Retention is chemical and mechanical To increase working time use a cold slab Manipulation: powder liquid systems, 90% of powder added first then the rest is mixed with liquid to adjust consistency

22 Glass ionomer cements Composition Main components are:
Polyacid Water Tartaric acid Different types and combinations of polyacid and glass create different versions of GIC

23 Glass Three main components: Silica SiO2 Alumina Al2O3 Calcium fluoride CaF2 In addition to sodium and aluminium fluorides, and calcium or aluminum phosphates. Components are fused at high temperatures, shock cooled then ground to a powder. Particle size depends on application

24 Liquid Liquid: co-polymers of polyacrylic acid and water E.g. of copolymers used: Acrylic acid and itaconic acid Acrylic acid and maleic acid Viscosity of the liquid depends on molecular weight and polyacid concentration. Tartaric acid influences working ad setting time

25 DISPENSING 2 bottle system hand mixed: Powder Liquid Anhydrous cement: powder (glass and freeze dried polyacid) and distilled water Capsules (pre-measured powder and liquid) mixed using a triturator (mixer). Easy to use, GIC is directly dispensed into cavity, eliminate errors from manual mixing.

26 Acid base reaction. Three overlapping steps:
Dissolution Gelation Hardening

27 Glass ionomer cements Composition and reaction explained previously
Uses: low/high strength bases (in deep cavities use calcium hydroxide instead) Luting agents Core build up Restorative material (e.g. class V) Manipulation

28 Resin modified-GIC Uses: Permanent cementation of crowns and bridges
Core build up Liners Bonding of orthodontic brackets

29 Resin modified-GIC Properties: Fluoride release
Low solubility once set Early low pH then increases High fracture toughness but lower than resin cements Problem of water sorption (contraindicated for all-ceramic restorations, may cause cracking due to expansion) Manipulation: capsules, powder liquid systems

30 Resin-based cements They are modified composites … Microfill or microhybrid Properties: Insoluble and high wear resistant Good esthetic under all-ceramic crowns Bonded by etching and bonding, sandblasting of internal surface of restoration Setting: Chemical cure Light cure Dual cure: most versatile

31 Compomer cements Composition: Properties:
Powder: fluorosilicate glass, sodium fluoride, self-cured and light-cured initiators Liquid: polymerized-methacrylate-carboxylic acid monomer, water, acrylate-phosphate monomer, diacrylate monomer Properties: Fluoride release low solubility high bond strength high fracture toughness and strength
