Abstract

Traditional dental education has recommended the generous use of bases and liners under amalgam restorations, primarily to prevent postoperative sensitivity. However, new developments in bases and liners, as well as a better understanding of pulp biology, have changed the indications for the use of these materials. Understanding the properties of currently available materials and how they interact with pulpal tissues can help the practitioner decide when to use bases and liners and which products to choose.
