A User's Guide to Bioactive Cementation

Bioactive cement is compatible with zirconia, e.max, and lithium silicates, as well as metal and PFM crowns and bridges.
A patented shock-absorbing rubberized resin component makes this material more resistant to fracture.
Bioactive cement reacts to pH changes of the oral cavity, releasing and recharging calcium, fluoride, and phosphate ions.
Clinicians like to find a cement that not only works, but also works well with all of their material choices. Highly compatible with indirect restoration materials, bioactive cement mimics the physical and chemical properties of teeth, resists fracture, and supports remineralization.
In this eBook, Les Rykiss, DMD, presents three cases detailing the use of bioactive cementation for: 1) a zirconia-reinforced lithium silicate crown for a failed amalgam restoration with a fractured cusp; 2) a zirconia cantilever bridge; and 3) an e.max layered crown for an endodontically treated tooth.
