Glass Ionomer Restoration in today's dentistry.
GLASS IONOMER RESTORATION IN TODAY'S DENTISTRY
One of the esthetic restoration is Glass Ionomer and the advanced version of Silicate cement, but not as good in optical properties compared to Silicates. Esthetically inferior to composite resins,but the newer glass could serve the purpose.
The adhesive nature of glass ionomer is made use in pit and fissure sealants, luting
or cementation and fillings. They are not very technique sensitive and does not have moisture contamination.
Latest glass ionomer, copomer, and hybrids have been available to us with evolving physical and chemical properties. Tomorrow would be a day I would still have better materials for my use and exploring the cupboards of the distributor for the latest best glass ionomer.
