Dentists favour certificated restorative materials

More than 91 per cent of U.S. dentists favour the certification of the composition and ADA (American Dental Association) classification of the restorative materials they prescribe, according to a survey conducted by the IdentAlloy/IdentCeram Council.

The IdentAlloy/IdentCeram Council is an industry non-profit organisation that provides participating suppliers with certificates attesting to the composition and ADA classification of their products. The suppliers then include the certificates free with the materials they ship to labs for the labs to pass on to dentists with every case.

In the survey, more than 97 per cent said they would favour dental labs that included free materials certification with every case they ship.
