Actually, many dental cements are available to cement fixed
prosthesis at dental clinical practice. The aim of this study was to
evaluate the cements used to fixed prosthesis by specialists who
work at city of Porto Alegre with a questionnaire. A questionnaire
with 22 questions was elaborated and applied to professionals
registered at Regional Dentistry Council (CRO). From the 225
electable subjects, 39 were excluded. The sample of 186
specialists, 72 weren´t interviewed. The 114 interviewed subjects
represented a 61.29% of response rate. The graduate year of 52%
of subjects was between 1981 and 2000, and 63% finished the post
graduate course after 1991. To final cementation of fixed metal
ceramic prosthesis, 65% used zinc phosphate cement. However, to
cements metal free fixed prosthesis, 57% used resinous cement.
With technological advances at rehabilitation materials, new
materials and techniques were developed. However, the zinc
phosphate cement is still the first choice to cement metal ceramic
prosthesis to Porto Alegre specialists.
