I have heard a number of speakers recommend different materials for filling the screw channel before cementing a crown or bridge.

I have heard of gutta-percha, cotton, Cavit, vinyl polysiloxane, etc. What are most of you using? What problems have you had? Has anybody had problems seating the crown after filling the screw channel?
