The NEW Glass Ionomers Really Work!
Featuring: Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD & Rella Christensen, PhD
Did you know the “NEW” glass ionomer (GI) restorative materials are the only materials tested by the TRAC division of Clinicians Report Foundation that actually seal margins? Additionally, they provide the most fluoride to surrounding tooth structure of any material. Improvements in glass ionomers include increased strength, lower solubility, better esthetics, and easier use characteristics. This video shows the proven necessity and the techniques for disinfecting tooth preparations, the brands of improved GI materials, new and improved GI uses for liners and bases, GI for small restorations, the “sandwich technique” restorations, and very importantly, using glass ionomer as a preventive and sealing “dentin replacement”. Incorporation of the NEW glass ionomers into your practice will benefit your patients by improving the preventive characteristics of your restorations and will also provide optimum restoration longevity.
