replacement materials

As a general rule composite materials produce certain potentially toxic by-products during polymerisation (setting). It is impossible to tell how or whether patients may be affected.

What is considered to be the most bio-compatible restoratives are the metal free ceramics e.g.zirconia. They can be used for crowns and bridges at the moment. Please note that whatever restoration is placed a composite cement is likely to be the cement of choice which means that potentially toxic by products will still be present.
