Dental bonding agents and resin luting cements are constantly evolving areas of restorative dentistry. In addition, new products have been introduced in the glass ionomers and resin-modified glass ionomers categories. Dentists are faced with a large range of restorative dental materials and are expected to separate advertising from reality. In this presentation, Dr. Khajotia will differentiate among the various categories of adhesive systems and resin cements from the perspective of critical Biomaterials Science considerations and clinical use, without personal bias or commercial interests. He will also discuss glass ionomers and resin-modified glass ionomers from that perspective. During this presentation, Dr. Khajotia will review the composition, manipulation and properties of bonding agents, resin luting cements, glass ionomers and resin-modified glass ionomers, with an emphasis on the latest generation of bonding agents. Dr. Khajotia will then provide attendees with a unique insight into current research in his laboratory on the development of an antibacterial bonding agent, and on interactions between oral biofilms and dental biomaterials. Overall, this presentation will provide participants with the tools needed to review and select suitable bonding agents, glass ionomers and resin cements with confidence.
