Excess Cement and Dental Implant Failure: Thoughts?

Last Updated April 08, 2013

I have had a lot of trouble removing excess cement from the crowns and bridges that I have cemented. My patients will not accept screw holes filled in with composite. I have tried several cements but always seem to run into this problem. I am barely loading the crowns with cement — just the cervical 2mm or so with a thin layer. I place Vaseline on the crown margins. What is your technique? What cement do you use? How do you remove the excess? I have not lost an implant to this but I am worried about it. Thoughts?
