Dental glass ionomer is a type of dental restorative material that is used to repair teeth, fill cavities and provide a base for dental crowns. They are made from a mixture of glass powder and a polymer (a type of plastic) and they set or cure using a chemical reaction between the glass and the polymer. They have several advantages compared to traditional materials, such as:
- They release fluoride, which can help to prevent tooth decay.
- They bond strongly to tooth structure, which can help to reduce the need for additional retention features (like pins or grooves) when placing restorations.
- They have good physical properties and can be used in both load-bearing and non-load-bearing applications.
- They can be used as a liner or base under composite resins.
Dental glass ionomer products are available in several forms, including a powder-liquid form, pre-fabricated discs, and cements that can be used for both direct and indirect restorations. They can be used for both primary and permanent teeth, and are often used in pediatric dentistry, geriatric dentistry, and special needs patients.
