The article focuses on the use of glass ionomer silver cermet for restoring interproximal lesions in primary molars. Glass ionomer silver cermet contains glass that is chemically bonded to sintered silver particles in a glass ionomer matrix. It is stated that properties imparted by the addition of metal render it superior to traditional glass ionomer cements. The clinical technique for Class II restorations with this cermet is provided. A clinical evaluation of the technique was performed. It is stated that in specific clinical situations, the cermet appears to be a workable restorative material. Preliminary information has shown that such restorations retain good marginal integrity, anatomic form, and minimal evidence of occlusal wear is presented by them.

    Aiming to assess the effect of mixing process on microleakage, 40 primary molars were filled with encapsulated glass ionomer cements (GICs) (Vidrion, RCaps and Fuji, IXGPFAST) or with GICs stored in bottles (Vidrion, R and Fuji, IX). Dye penetration was assessed using scores. Encapsulation and...

    Objective: Good survival rates (SR) have been reported for occlusal-atraumatic restorative treatment (ART) restorations but not for approximal-ART restorations. The high-viscosity consistency of the glass ionomer cement (GIC) may lead to its incorrect adaptation into the cavity and thus to...

    Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of 3 glass ionomer cement (GIC) brands and the postrestoration meal consumed on the survival rate of proximal atraumatic restorative treatment (ART) restorations. Methods: A total of 804 proximal restorations were placed in...
