dental materials

  1. tooth colored materials that can be placed directly into the cavity preparation without being constructed outside the mouth first
    direct placement esthetic materials
  2. tooth colored material composed of an organic resin matrix and inorganic filler particles
    composite resin
  3. thick liquids made up of two or more organic molecules that form a matrix around filler particles
    organic resin (polymer) matrix
  4. fine particles of quartz, silica, or glass that give strength and wear resistance to the material
    inorganic (silica) filler particles
  5. a chemical that helps bind the fillmer particles to the organic matrix
    silane coupling agent
  6. coloring agent that give composites their color
  7. composite that polymerizes by a chemical reaction when two resins are mixed together
    self cured composite
  8. composite that polymerizes when a chemical is activated by light in the blue wave range
    light cured composite
  9. composite that contains components of light cured and self cured composites. when the tow parts are mixed together it polymerizes by a chemical reaction that can be accelerated by blue light activation
    dual cured composite
  10. an early genration of composite that contained filler particles ranging from 10 to 100 um
    macrofilled composites
  11. compsite that contains very small filler particles averaging .04 um in diameter
    microfilled composite
  12. composite that contains both macrofilled and microfilled particles to obtain the strength of a macrofill and the polishability of a microfill
    hybrid composite
  13. a light cured, low viscosity composite resin that cantains fewer filler particles
    flowable composite
  14. a light cured, high viscous, heavily filled composite resin for dentists who use a placement technique with composite that is similar to that of amalgam
    packable composite
  15. a self cured, tooth colored, fluoride releasing restorative material that bonds to tooth structure without and additional bonding agent
    glass ionomer cements
  16. a glass ionomer to which resin has been added to improve its physical properties
    hybrid (resin modified) glass ionomer
  17. composite resin that has polyacid, fluoride releasing groups added
  18. tooth colored materials that are used to construct restorations outside the mouth in the dental lab or at chariside on replicase of prepared teeth. they are later cemented to the teeth
    indriect placement esthetic materials
