Glass Ionomer materials have come a long way in the past few decades, with improvements in delivery, placement and appearance. These “bioactive” materials are uniquely positioned to help manage dental caries, whether utilized along with composite resin and amalgam, or as a primary restorative.

A review of the literature will reveal indications for these materials including using them as liners, bases, sealants and restorations for root caries and non-carious cervical lesions. Differences between traditional glass ionomers and resin-modified glass ionomers will be discussed, with indications for each. This evidence-based course unites science with clinical dentistry. Many cases will be presented, to directly apply this information to the daily practice of dentistry.
