Glass Ionomer Dental Cement Kit : An advanced formulation designed as a multipurpose final cement for the cementation of crowns, bridges, inlays and onlays, as well as certain orthodontic applications. This cement chemically bonds to enamel, dentin and metal structure and prevents enamel decalcification. Primarily a permanent cementing agent for conventional dental prosthesis, it is also an orthodontic band cement, coronal buildup material and cavity liner AND it releases fluoride. Diametral Tensile Strength of 1378 PSI. Ideal for use as a liner under composite, amalgam or porcelain restorations where a thin lining is indicated. The cement is radiopaque and has cariostatic properties by naturally releasing fluoride. 1 Glass Ionomer Cement Kit 20gm Powder/15ml Liquid
What is glass ionomer cement?
Glass ionomer cement is a kind of dental cement that was developed in 1965 and began to be used in restorative dentistry in 1972. Made of a silicate glass powder combined with a water-soluble polymer, these cements are also called "giomers." They are used to permanently cement dental inlays, bridges, crowns and orthodontic brackets and to fill cavities. The cement is popular because it adheres to enamel and dentin and has the same natural color as teeth. In addition, glass ionomer cement releases fluoride ions, which are beneficial to the teeth.
However, giomers are brittle and cannot be used in load-bearing areas. As of the 1990s, new formulas with higher powder-to-liquid ratios have been introduced, and these are slightly stronger. Studies have shown giomers to have 90 percent retention over a 10-year period. For optimal bonding, the tooth surface should be conditioned with polyacrylic acid before application of the cement. Glass ionomer cements are classified based on what they are used for. Type I giomers are used as adhesives for attaching dental crowns, bridges and prostheses.
Type II are used as restorative materials, and type III are used for lining and sealing. If traditional giomers are to be used in a higher-stress area of the mouth, they must be protected by an amalgam or a resin composite. This is sometimes called the "sandwich technique" because the giomers are sandwiched between the tooth and whatever restorative material is being used. A more recent innovation is resin-modified glass ionomer cement, which forms an even stronger bond with dentine than traditional giomers do. While the final color of all giomers (traditional and resin-modified) depends on what polishing technique the dentist uses, it’s possible they might discolor after some time.
