Biological basis for clinical success: pulp protection and the tooth-restoration interface.

Author information

Department of Biomaterials, University of Alabama School of Dentistry, Birmingham 35294-0007, USA.


This article provides biological and technological information that strengthens clinicians' understanding of cohesive hybridization and pulp therapy in order to support their routine use of bonding and resin systems. Utilizing cohesive systems, clinicians should experience several advantages over traditional water-soluble base and liner systems. When properly applied, cohesive hybridization of vital dentin prevents immediate postoperative hypersensitivity under all restorations and completely seals the entire tooth-restoration interface, which provides a reduction in recurrent caries.
