Dental Impression

Dental impressions are negative imprints of teeth and oral soft tissues from which a positive representation can be cast. They are used in prosthodontics (to make dentures), orthodontics, restorative dentistry, dental implantology and oral and maxillofacial surgery.


Dental material

Dental materials are specially fabricated materials, designed for use in dentistry. There are many different types of dental material, and their characteristics vary according to their intended purpose. Examples include temporary dressings, dental restorations (fillings, crowns, bridges), endodontic materials (used in root canal therapy), impression materials, prosthetic materials (dentures), dental implants, and many others.

1.Temporary dressings

A temporary dressing is a dental filling which is not intended to last in the long term. They are interim materials which may have therapeutic properties. A common use of temporary dressing occurs if root canal therapy is carried out over more than one appointment. In between each visit, the pulp canal system must be protected from contamination from the oral cavity, and a temporary filling is placed in the access cavity.


Dental cements are used most often to bond indirect restorations such as crowns to the natural tooth surface

3.Impression materials

They are used in prosthodontics (to make dentures), orthodontics, restorative dentistry, dental implantology and oral and maxillofacial surgery.

 4.Restorative materials

Dental restorative materials are used to replace tooth structure loss, usually due to dental caries (dental cavities), but also tooth wear and dental trauma. On other occasions, such materials may be used for cosmetic purposes to alter the appearance of an individual's teeth.


A)Direct restorative materials


Composite resin

Glass Ionomer Cement

Resin modified Glass-Ionomer Cement (RMGIC)



 B)Indirect Restorative materials

Porcelain (ceramic)

Composite Resin

Ceramic-Resin Hybrids



Lifespan of dental restorations

Fillings have a finite lifespan: an average of 12.8 years for amalgam and 7.8 years for composite resins. However, the lifespan of a restoration also depends upon how the patient takes care of the damaged tooth.
