Advances in Glass-Ionomer Cements

Editorial Reviews
Book News, Inc.
Fourteen contributions report on recent progress in the formulation and understanding of glass-ionomer cements and the efficacy of the newer polyacid-modified resin materials in dental restoration. Several chapters cover the adhesion and fluoride release of these cements, including an assessment of how the cements attach to tooth structure and whether fluoride plays a role in the prevention of secondary caries around the restorations. Other topics are the use of glass-ionomers as bondings, linings, or bases; glass-ionomer luting cements; and the application of glass-ionomer cements in endodontics, pediatric dentistry, and class III and class V restorations. -- Copyright © 1999 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR All rights reserved

Book Info
Univ. of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Progress in the formulation and understanding of glass-ionomer cements and the efficacy of polyacid-modified resin materials. For clinical and laboratory researchers. Color and halftone illustrations. DNLM: Glass Ionomer Cements.

Written by an international group of experts, this comprehensive book provides an up-to-date, complete review of all types of glass-ionomer cements--from their uses, limitations, and advantages and disadvantages, to any problems associated with their use in modern dental practice.
