Abstract

Glass ionomers were introduced to the profession 25 years ago and have been shown to be a very useful adjunct to restorative dentistry. Glass ionomer cement composed of a calcium - alumino - silicate glass powder and an aqueous solution of an acrylic acid homo - or copolymer. These cements possess certain unique properties that make them useful as restorative and adhesive materials, including adhesion to tooth structure and base metals, anticariogenic properties due to release of fluoride, thermal compatibility with tooth enamel, and biocompatibility. In recent years there have been considerable changes in the formulations, properties and handling properties of the glass ionomer cements for different clinical applications. It is certain that no material is perfect, but with the current level of intensive research on glass ionomers, the deficiencies that exist seem to be eliminated or at least reduced, resulting in an ever - improving range of materials of this type.
