Contemporary Permanent Luting Agents Used in Dentistry: A Literature Review
Keywords:Dental cements, luting agents, adhesive resin cement, resin modified glass ionomer cement
Dental cements are widely used in dentistry. Base material, temporary filling material and luting agents can all have different clinical applications. Different types of cement have also been developed for various orthodontic and endodontic treatments.
In literature it is still argued that there is not ideal cement answering all purposes yet, so different materials are required for the comprehensive patient treatments and it is not always that easy to make the best choice.
The aim of this article is to provide a clinically relevant discussion of contemporary permanent luting agents, in order to enhance the dentist’s ability to make proper cementation choices and application.
