Radiograph Detection of Residual Excess Cement Associated with Cement-Retained Implant Restorations

Dr. Wadhwani's latest clinical report on residual excess cement was published in the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry.


Residual excess cement (REC) is a common complication of cement-retained prostheses and has been linked to peri- implant disease. Removal of the cement residue may result in resolution of the issue if addressed early in the disease process.

Characteristics related to cements and flow patterns specific to implants are addressed. Click the preview below to download the article.
