Light-activated Glass ionomer/Resin Materials

By Dr. Vishaal Bhat on Friday, May 9, 2008 with 0 comments

Traditional glass ionomer combined with composite resin.

a. Advantage of fluoride release and light -activation. Has moderate strength and moderate esthetics.

b. Used as a liner (Vitrebondtm - 3M). Has been shown to inhibit in-vitro caries activity.

c. Also can be used as a restorative material in patients having a high need for cariostatic activity. Manipulation requires use of the Centrixtm syringe and clear cervical matrices.Esthetics is not as good as composite resin although the various Vita shades are available.
