Mod D Unit III


Long-length surface of a tooth;axis Axial
A method to avoid contamination by applying material between germs and objects Barrier Technique
Dental cavities; Tooth Decay Caries
To remove debris (dead tissue) Debridement
Case in which calcium and phosphorus are lost from the enamal surface demineralization
Pertanining to beauty; act of making something appealing Esthetic
Speration or detachment from others or other areas Isolation
A piece of floss or a cord that stablizes the dental dam in different applications; used in fixed bridge isolation, bleaching procedures, and tooth isolation Ligature
Buildup or plate; invisible film on tooth surface Plaque
Steps or method to follow Protocol
The ability of a material to withstand forces of tensile stress without failing Ductility
The ability to be distorted or deformed by an applied force and then return to its orginal shape once the force is removed Elasticity
Continuing deformation of a solid; also called creep and slump Flow
Creation of electrical shock caused by two different metals comming together Galvanism
Stage of tooth preparation for the undercut of walls to provide a mechanical hold Retention Form
Ability of a material to disolve in a fluid Soluble
The ability for a material to transmit heat Thermal Conductivity
The ability for a material to flow over a surface Wettability
Material applied in a putty or thick layer between the tooth and restoration to protect the pulp from chemical, electrical, mechanical or thermal irratation Base
A cavity varnish containing organic sollvents (eather acetone, or choloroform) and is used only under metal restoratitons because the solvent material in the varnish may interfere with the setting action of composite and resins Copal Varnish
Materials that are used to treat hypersensitivity in the tooth Desensitizers
Acid materials used to prepare a tooth surface for attaching to another material Etchant
A chemical reacation that releases heat Exothermic
Material in a thin layer on the walls and floor of the cavity preperation Liner
Bonding or cementing together Luting
A soothing effect a material may have Sedative Effect
Materials set by means of a chemical reaction Self-Curing
Thin layer of material that is placed to seal the walls and floor of a cavity preparation Varnish
Movement of teeth of the lower jaw in an up-and-down, tooth position relationship Articulation
Preparation for a restoration; technique depends on the amount and location of decay, degree of pupal involvement, and type of materials used to restore the tooth. Cavity Preparation
Used to seal the dentin tubules to prevent acids,saliva, and debris from reaching the pulp; when used with cavity liner or medicated base, it is placed on top of these materials. Cavity Varnish
High strength bases of thick, putty-like consistency places on the floor of a cavity preparation to protect the pulp and provide mechanical support for the restoration; preparation, pulp sensitivity, and type of restoration indicate which cement to use Cement Bases
Technique used to treat permanent tooth when pulp has been exposed due to mechanical or traumatic means but chance exists that the pulp will heal; involves placing of medicament directly over exposed pulp, followed by tooth restoration Direct Pulp Capping
To scatter, spread out; to let heat escape Dissipate
When there is a near pulp exposure, a cavity liner is placed to protect the pulp before the restoration is placed Indirect Pulp Capping
Process by which a material changes from a plastic pliable state to a rigid state Polymerization
Mixing of mercury with other alloy material to form an amalgam Trituration
Items used to cover badly stained teeth and to reshape the anatomy of teeth; thin layers of tooth-colored material that cover much of the facial surface Veneer
