The selection of an appropriate luting agent influences the long-term clinical success of fixed prosthodontic restorations. There are varieties of luting agents available from conventional water-based to contemporary adhesive resin cements. However, no single luting agent is capable of meeting all the stringent requirements. Introduction of adhesive resin systems has completely changed the face of fixed prosthodontic practice leading to an increased use of bonded all-ceramic crowns and resin…

Efficient Agents for Pulp Protection: A Review
Aim To review on various pulp protecting agents in endodontics and analyse the uses, purposes, standard and recent advancement
The results obtained after their statistical analysis revealed an increase in surface microhardness in 24 hours and 30 days regardless of the type of surface and spatula used for their mixture, so it was concluded that thetype of surfaceand spatula do not alter significantly the surface micro Hardness in the two types of ionomer.
