Description

Continuous research efforts around the world have led to a great number of applications for the glass ionomer. Some of the efforts have resulted in the substitution of this agent for composite resins in primary teeth. When used in conjunction with a surface-penetrating agent, the wear resistance of the ionomer can be improved appreciably. The glass ionomers provide excellent resistance to micro-leakage but they also release effective levels of fluoride ions. At least one clinical study has shown that glass ionomers are clinically effective in reducing the amount of secondary caries, particularly as compared to amalgam.

Objectives

Objectives
1. Identify the advantages of glass ionomers as a restorative agent. 2. Make recommendations for the restoration of posterior preparations in primary teeth in cases of moderate to high incidences of caries. 3. Identify the types of sandwich techniques and the objectives of each. 4. Define methods for restoring abfracted lesions. 5. Discuss the etiology of post-operative sensitivity.
