Biological Basis for Clinical Success

Pulp Protection and the Tooth-Restoration Interface

This podcast provides biological and technological information that strengthens clinicians' understanding of cohesive hybridization and pulp therapy in order to support their routine use of bonding and resin systems. utilizing cohesive systems, clinicians should experience several advantages over traditional water-soluable base and linear systems. When properly applied, cohesive hybridization of vital dentin prevents immediate postoperative hypersensitivity under all restorations and completely seals the entire tooth-restoration interface, which provides a reduction in recurrent caries.

*Professor, Departments of Biomaterials and Restorative Dentistry, University of Alabama School of Dentistry, Birmingham, Alabama; Visiting Professor, Departments of Operative Dentistry, Tokoyo Medical and Dental Univeristy, Tokoyo, Japan, Tsurumi School of Dental Medicine, Yokohama, Japan.


Learning Objectives:

This podcast provides an overview of reliable paradigms for sealing restorations against microleakage. Upon completing this podcast, the listener should:

  • Be aware of the adhesive systems that are recommended by the authors
  • Understand the rationale for the selection of particular adhesive systems.
