New materials and applications in adhesion are profoundly changing the way dentistry is delivered. Bonding techniques have long been restricted to the tooth hard tissue, enamel, and dentin, which have obvious applications in operative and preventive dentistry as well as in esthetic and pediatric dentistry, prosthodontics, and orthodontics. The current development of adhesive techniques for soft tissues and slow-releasing agents will expand applications to periodontics and oral surgery as well. Scientifically sound, peer-reviewed articles explore the latest innovations in these emerging fields.
