    hydrophloric acid
  31. what is the purpose of bonding?
    to provide a MECHANICAL and CHEMICAL BOND for RESIN MATERIALS (or combo of both)
  32. what 6 things increase the rate of abrasion?
    • speed and pressure
    • size irregularity and hardness
    • number of particles
  33. _____ speed = _____ abrasion
    • higher
    • more
  34. what will increasing speed and pressure do to abrasion?
    increase rate of abrasion
  35. what are adverse reactions of abrasives/polishes? 3
    • fluoride-rich enamel layer is polished away
    • polish away contact and margins of restorations
    • exposed cementum or demineralized enamel removed
  36. what is used for the final polish for the majority of restorations?
    tin oxide
  37. why should one polish fillings? 3
    • improves esthetics
    • improves tissue health
    • increases longevity of fillings
  38. how does heat affect the dental pulp?
    detrimental to the pulp
  39. what is used in the lab to polish gold?
    • burlew wheel on slow speed handpiece
    • rouge on rag wheel
  40. which cement bond to teeth? 3
    • zinc polycarbonxylate
    • resin glass ionomer (hybrid) cement
    • glass ionomer have a weak bond to tooth
  41. which cement has chmical adhesion? 2
    • glass ionomer cements
    • resin cements
  42. which cement has mechanical retention between tooth and crown? 2
    • zinc phosphate
    • zinc polycarboxylate
  43. what are the differences between high and low strength bases/liners?
    • high strength base/liner-provides THERMAL insulation and MECHANICAL support for restorations
    • low strength base/liner-PULP capping, stimulates secondary dentin, barrier between pulp and restoration
  44. name the fluoride releasing cements
    • glass ionmer
    • hybrid ionomer
  45. what are the purposes of bases/liners?
    • liners-seal dentin or medicate the dentinal pulp
    • bases-provide thermal insulation or mechanical protection of the dental pulp
  46. which dental cement sooths pulp tissue?
    zinc oxide eugenol
  47. what are the characteristics of a base?
    • bases are used to provide THERMAL INSULATION OR MEHCANICAL PROTECTION for the dental pulp
    • includes ALL CEMENTS because cements are poor thermal conductors and have adequate compressive strength
  48. which cement makes reparative dentin?
    calcium hydroxide
  49. what are the porperites of cements that allow them to be used as bases?
    poor thermal conductors, adequate compressive strength (they insulate and protect the pulp)
