Many techniques and products have been developed specifically for cement retained implant restorations; some are potentially detrimental to implants, with dentists not fully aware of the issues and implications of using an inappropriate material or method. To date no protocol exists for cementing implant retained super-structures. The goal is to examine these from a scientific based perspective and present up-to-date and as of yet unpublished research data that will be used to develop a suitable protocol for clinical practice. This lecture explores many of the problems encountered with cement selection, application techniques and gives clinical guidelines based on research projects currently being undertaken.
