Dental A to Z

Dental A to Z

Also in G:

Glass ionomer

Tooth coloured filling material made from glass. It can be used in small shallow cavities but it generally has poor strength. It is very useful in children’s teeth and can leach fluoride, which helps prevent further decay. It is sometimes used with dental composite to help the sealing of the tooth. Like composite it is very sensitive to moisture before it has set.
