Microscopic evaluation regarding time behavior of orthodontic cements used for disjunctor cementing

Microscopic evaluation regarding time behavior of orthodontic cements used for disjunctor cementing Abstract In order to fulfill their function, orthodontic devices must be cemented on teeth using orthodontic rings. The retention of the orthodontic ring is influenced mainly by the type of dental-ring adhesion. This study was initiated to determine possible microleakage events while using zinc phosphate cement Adhesor (Spofa Dental), conventional glass ionomer Ketac Cem (3M ESPE) and Fuji Ortho (GC) and a compomer Transbond Plus (3M Unitek). The results of the study are consistent with those reported in the literature reference, the compomer is the preferred adhesive material for cementing the orthodontic rings, compared to conventional glass ionomer cements and zinc-phosphate cement. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png ARS Medica Tomitana de Gruyter

Abstract

Abstract In order to fulfill their function, orthodontic devices must be cemented on teeth using orthodontic rings. The retention of the orthodontic ring is influenced mainly by the type of dental-ring adhesion. This study was initiated to determine possible microleakage events while using zinc phosphate cement Adhesor (Spofa Dental), conventional glass ionomer Ketac Cem (3M ESPE) and Fuji Ortho (GC) and a compomer Transbond Plus (3M Unitek). The results of the study are consistent with those reported in the literature reference, the compomer is the preferred adhesive material for cementing the orthodontic rings, compared to conventional glass ionomer cements and zinc-phosphate cement.
