|I continue to be baffled reading how some on DT continue to use Maxcem over Unicem, when Unicem has far higher bond strengths to both enamel and dentin, and even some of the dentists to whom the Cerec guys on DT listen have repeated the low bond strength Maxcem data. Yet, knowing that the bond strengths with Unicem are higher and when using a resin adhesive they are about doubled they still resist implementing it.
don't know what to tell you John. can't think this is any different than many years ago when you first started doing research and people still chose to ignore it then!!!!
i'm anal retentive, but most importantly i'm not stupid - i listen! being anal retentive i like procedures to be as easy as possible. unfortunately, i think that many do the easy thing to the patients detriment!
why do dentists do things even though they have been told by so many others that this shouldn't be done? because it is easier for them i assume. i keep hearing how great the clean-up is or how they like the way the cement is dispensed. i don't hear anything about strenghts!
unfortunatley i do fall into this sometimes. i have been using unicem for years and can say that i have only started to bond them in this past year, since last october. (3m didn't say anything about using bonding agent). some can disspute if i'm stupid or not, but due to what i have heard/read i bond them in now.
i don't see or think cerec users to be any different.
