Dr. Todd Snyder shows how he replaced a patient's crowns on teeth #8 and #9 using ACTIVA BioACTIVE-Cement. Dr. Snyder shares step-by-step images from the pre op smile to the final retracted view of new restorations.
Age related visual impairment and decreased dexterity can lead to higher caries rates and a decreased ability to adequately maintain good oral hygiene. This makes the margins of restorations particularly susceptible to recurrent decay. Choosing a cement that will not only retain the restoration but also help stimulate remineralization is...
In a career that spans 40 years, Dr. Mark Cannon has witnessed the evolution of biomaterials and has actively tried to improve them. His years of material research and development have culminated in a new line of groundbreaking materials—the Thera products from BISCO.
Calcimol LC, from VOCO America, Inc., is a light-cured, resin modified, calcium ion releasing base liner and pulp capping material that provides thermal protection and acid resistance. It is indicated for indirect pulp capping, using as a lining under any type of filling material, and for extra protection when using the total-etch technique.
TheraCal LC was developed for direct and indirect pulp capping. It can also be used as a base or liner to protect restorations made with other base materials. Read at least five reasons you should try TheraCal LC in addition to its handling properties and reliability.
