Dentists no longer need to avoid glass ionomers because of capsule delivery, as the new versions are now available in an automix delivery.
Both self-cure and light-cure glass ionomers have been proven to recharge with fluoride.
A high-quality glass ionomer system makes placing bioactive restorations faster, easier, and more satisfactory for patients.
Glass ionomers have a long history of restorative success, but inefficient capsule delivery lessened their use.
New glass ionomers offer many conclusive advantages, including hassle-free delivery with an ergonomic dispenser (automixing); bioactive material with high fluoride release; and high bond strength, even in presence of saliva. In addition, they demonstrate excellent esthetics and polishability, with virtually no postoperative sensitivity.
