Restorative cement suitable for the restoration of prepared teeth and restorations of classIII, V& limited Class I cavities. This glass ionomer cement (gic) is known for its aesthetic looks and can be used for core build-up.

GIC (Glass Ionomer Cement) is a restorative cement commonly used in dentistry. It is a versatile dental material that offers several advantages in restorative and preventive dentistry. GICs are composed of a powdered glass component and a liquid polyalkenoic acid component, which are mixed together to form a cement that can bond to tooth structure.

  1. Adhesion to tooth structure: GIC has the ability to chemically bond to both enamel and dentin. This adhesive property allows for good marginal sealing and helps prevent microleakage, which can lead to secondary decay.

  2. Biocompatibility: GIC is biocompatible, meaning it is well tolerated by the surrounding oral tissues. This makes it suitable for use in patients with sensitive teeth or those who may have allergies to other dental materials.

  3. Fluoride release: GICs have the ability to release fluoride ions over time. This can help to remineralize the tooth structure and reduce the risk of secondary decay in the surrounding tooth.

  4. Aesthetic options: GICs are available in different shades, including tooth-colored options, making them suitable for use in anterior restorations where aesthetics are important.

  5. Dual-cure capability: Some GIC formulations have a dual-cure capability, meaning they can be light-cured to expedite the setting process or allowed to self-cure in the absence of light. This flexibility allows for different clinical applications.

Common uses of GIC restorative cement include:

  • Filling small cavities in non-load-bearing areas of the mouth, especially in primary teeth or in patients with high caries risk.
  • Restoring cervical (root) lesions or eroded areas near the gumline.
  • Repairing small chips or defects in the enamel of anterior teeth.
  • Lining cavities prior to the placement of other restorative materials, such as composite resin or amalgam.
  • Sealing pits and fissures to prevent the initiation or progression of decay (pit and fissure sealants).

It's important to note that GIC restorative cement has limitations. It may not provide the same strength and durability as some other restorative materials, such as composite resin or ceramic. Therefore, its use should be carefully considered based on the specific clinical situation and the longevity expectations of the restoration.

The specific instructions for using GIC restorative cement may vary depending on the brand and product. It's best to follow the manufacturer's recommendations and consult with a dental professional for the proper selection and application of GIC restorative cement.
