Although excellent results can be achieved with composite restorations, they do have limitations creating the need for a restorative material suitable for use in less than ideal conditions. Xerostomia, for example, can significantly increase root caries. Glass Ionomer restorative materials release fluoride helping to reduce recurrent decay. In addition to simplified ease of use, glass ionomer materials can reduce post-operative sensitivity and enjoy a stable long-term bond to dentin. Watch this webcast and learn how this bioactive material can be an excellent therapeutic alternative to composite resin materials.
