Where is the cell rich zone of the pulp? What kind of cells are present? adjacent, deep to the cell free zone undifferentiated mesenchymal cells
What characteristics of a mature tooth/pulp make it less resilient to insult? Decreased pulp chamber size-->less blood vessels, fewer undifferentiated mesenchymal cells remain in the cell rich zone
What ideally happens when dentinal tubules are opened on the surface? material accumulates at the surface aperture and mineralizes (similar to mineralization of plaque to form calculus)
What is SCLEROTIC DENTIN? more highly mineralized as a result of the tubule's obliteration as it is filled with additional mineralization (requires dead tract to form)
What is a DEAD TRACT? an empty dentinal tubule b/c the odontoblastic process is gone
How is tertiary/repairative dentin formed? by differentiated mesenchymal cells that migrate from the cell rich zone to fill dead tracts at the access
How is tertiary dentin different from primary and secondary dentin? less permeable, may be atubular
What is the function of tertiary dentin? Seals the pulp cavity to protect it from invasion by toxins/bacteria
What are negative effects of the formation of tertiary dentin? results in insensible dentin, lack of stimulation of pulp inflammation so pulp doesn't know when to mount immune response to insult AND can result in abnormal pulp cavity that is difficult to instrument during endo tx

How do you know the working time of a glass ionomer has ended? when the surface sheen is gone from the mix
What should be done as soon as the ionomer working time ends to prevent dehydration? apply a moisture barrier (oil, varnish, or resin)
Why are light cure ionomers better? they have a resin incorporated within them that is set during curing which eliminates the need for separate application of a barrier

Why shouldn't the occlussal cavosurface of class I and II restorations be beveled? it enlarges the surface area of the composite in the occlusion (less strong, wears faster than enamel) & thinned areas of composite along the margins are more prone to fracture from occlusal stress-->marginal leakage
What dental tissue does composite bond most strongly to? enamel
Should the margin of a class V restoration be beveled near the cementoenamel junction? not if it will remove the enamel portion of the margin to which the composite will bond

How long should enamel be etched? dentin? 30-40 seconds for enamel 10-15 seconds for dentin
What is the result of prolonged etching? creates an insoluble calcium precipitate on the surface which reduces bond strength
How long should the tooth be rinsed after etching? 10-20 seconds
What happens if the tooth is rinsed for too long after etching? damages the etched surface which reduces bond srength
Where is enamel bonding the weakest? why? along cavosurface margins in the cervical enamel b/c of the anatomic makeup of enamel in that site
What is the purpose of using enamel bonding agents? improved retention and decreased marginal leakage
Why do materials bond more strongly to enamel than dentin? Higher inorganic composition of enamel (96% compared to 70%) and interference of smear layer that forms on dentin, blocking tubules
