Before and After Cementation

Seating crowns in posterior areas can be exceptionally difficult. In addition to limited accessibility, it is also hard to visually confirm each step of the process. X-rays taken both after proximal contact adjustment and again after cementation can be a vital tool in ensuring both complete marginal seating and the removal of all excess cement.

Fig. 1 - This x-ray, taken before cementation, shows complete marginal seating after proximal contact has been adjusted using the ContacEZ Black Diamond Strip.

Fig. 2 - After cement is removed, another x-ray reveals that cement is trapped in the sub-gingival area. The excess cement can then be removed and the interproximal surface can be polished with the ContacEZ Sub-Gingival Strips.
