Title: Dental adhesion, from concepts to clinical practice
In the last years, dental adhesion has revolutionized modern dentistry, allowing for the development of minimally invasive techniques and highly esthetic restorations. The concept of adhesion is not specific to dentistry, as it is found as a principle in many other fields, especially in engineering, and has been introduced in medicine and dentistry for of the benefits it can offer.
Adhesive systems have undergone many changes over the years, all of them aimed at improvement and development.
An effective adhesive system reduces marginal microleakage, the occurrence of secondary caries, postoperative sensitivity, and preserves tooth structure, allowing minimal cavity preparation.
Overall, dental adhesion is a valuable technique that can enhance the quality and longevity of direct or indirect restorations.
