Bonded glass-ionomer-silver-cermet cement and visible light-hardened glass-ionomer liner and base material have proven to be reliable dentinal and enamel restoratives since the mid-1980s. When used within their limitations, they offer advantages over mechanically interlocked silver amalgam material. A light-hardened glass-ionomer-resin cement restorative material, which appears to have greater wear resistance and fracture toughness than prior glass-ionomer cements, has been introduced. This paper describes use of the new material and discusses its potential future implications.

    Glass-ionomer cements offer advantages in the treatment of the primary dentition. New, colored, highly viscous glass-ionomer cements hold the promise of better abrasion properties. Owing to their high viscosity, their handling characteristics are similar to those of amalgam. Examination of their...

    The potential risks of mercury dissolution from dental amalgam have long been recognized. This study examined the effect of hydrogen ion concentration on the release of mercury from two dental amalgams: an admixed high-copper amalgam and a new tin- and copper-free amalgam. Specimens of each type...
