"After replacing metal fillings, only the habits and the lack of technological innovation delay hegemony on ceramic composites in the field of fixed prosthesis. However, their dominance is expected, programmed and inevitable. '
With the development of dental adhesives and composites qualities, the new market areas where composites act are numerous. Universities and many Implantologist speakers recommend more often reducing the use of ceramics. Their aesthetic quality in comparison with that of the composite is no longer justified to ignore their drawbacks, especially their high hardness, which is disabling. The use of composites often leads to a change in surgical technique over the old material dethroned, and therein lays the main obstacle to this expansion according to the new challenge. Among the areas where composites have become dominant include the following:
The conservative works: the silver amalgams have almost disappeared and their technique is no longer taught.
Removable prosthesis: new prefabricated teeth proposed by industry are in composites, they replace the old ceramic and resin mixtures, and here the technique of fabricating dentures remains unchanged.
The fixed prosthesis, unitary: the direct or indirect composite onlays push further the indication of crowns, with necessary technical adaptation.
The fixed prosthesis, bridges:
"This technical innovation follows the recommendations of professionals and meets the needs of the consolidated composite resins market."
