Just finished a case for a patient who fell, knocked out #7 & #8, fractured a portion of #9, and took out most of the labial plate of bone. During the many many months since the fall she has had numerous bone/gingival grafts. Apparently the last one, done last Monday, is successful. My job is to place a provisional fixed bridge from "You can't grind down my" virgin #6 to a labially reduced #9.

Anticipating a finally successful graft, a lab fabricated 3 unit bridge was made involving a not too close fitting (within a mm or so) veneer for #9, and pontic for #7 & #8. These were attached with Surpass and Anchor. The interproximal between #6 & #7 is Surpass and Anchor with a universal splint wire fitted into the mesial of #6 And the distal of #7 pontic.

The next catch is that this thing has to last about 8 months before the implants can be placed and the implants are intergrating.

I have photos of the bonded case - to which I'm going to be married for the next 10 months! If this doesn't debond JK and his materials are even better than anyone ever dreamed possible!

The case discussed above is still not ready for implants. That's the bad news. The good news is that the bridge is still there!

As for Surpass v everything else: I guess this as good a place as any to post this.

There were complaints on DT that in order to use Simplicity and Surpass one needs "coaching" by JK. In response I pointed out that ALL dental adhesives are technique sensitive and the videos from Apex are invaluable in defining protocol! Using Prelude, for example, I got immediate SBS of 21.9MPA and 17.3MPA depending on whether the dentin was left dry or moist - which is not discussed in the instructions. BTW the controls of Simplicity and Surpass had SBS had 33.6MPa and 44.7MPa respectively. Laughing

I looked into this and it was incredibly difficult to incorporate for some reason. I'll check again.

"Eye half a gnu spell ink chequer
Hit came with mi Pee Sea
Hit plane lee marques four my revue
Miss stakes eye can knot sea
Eye ran this poem thru it too day

Its letter perfect in ever e weigh
Caws my chequer tolled me sew."

Patient leaving for a short vacation presented with #29 cleanly fractured off at the gingival level. Handed me a crown with the coronal portion of the tooth neatly within. She didn't want to start RCT or go away with a funny looking space. Surpass and dual cure flowable to hold temporarily. Finally returned for recall yesterday. Its still working fine!

BTW this was done 1/4/05! But according to some "Long term dentin bonding is fiction".

Perhaps with some adhesives in some practitioners hands.
