Clinical recommendations for using Bases and Liners

By Dr.Swathi Pai on Friday 25 April 2008 with 0 comments



  • Do not base up to ideal form, as base weakens the restoration
  • Avoid covering the entire pulpal floor with a base/liner for a stress bearing restoration (Amalgam)
  • Glass ionomers can reduce post-op sensitivity better that zinc phosphate
  • Underneath resins
  • if less than .5 mm away from pulp, (seeing pink), use Dycal + a fluoride release liner + DBA
  • low caries rate, > 0.5 mm away from pulp: use a fluoride release glass ionomer liner or a DBA
  • high caries rate, > 0.5 mm away from pulp: use a fluoride release liner and a DBA
  • Under amalgams
  • pink <>
  • low risk >0.5 mm away from pulp - Vitrebond w or w/o copal varnish or a DBA/resin liner
  • high risk, > 0.5 mm away from pulp - Vitrebond + DBA/resin liner
