Challenge: Mainly there are three applications, for which new adhesive material is required:
1. Until today, dental cement used to cement fixed restorations on teeth or implants is optimized for permanent fixation. In case of clinical or technical complications, e. g. screw loosening on implants, parodontitis or ceramic chipping, a necessary removal of the restoration leads to destruction or damage. Re-use of the restoration is rarely possible, thus removing so far regularly requires a new preparation, combined with additional expenses.
2. In case of provisional fixation of long time provisional restorations stability over a certain period of time is a desirable feature. Cements currently available are not stable over time. Restorations may fall off at any time and may even be aspirated or swallowed by the patient.
3. To date orthodontic brackets have to be removed with special nippers and the adhesive cement remaining on the tooth structure has to be removed with diamond or hard metal burs. This procedure is time consuming. In addition it bears the risk of damaging the tooth structure.
