Glass ionomer cement [GIG] is cu"ently the most widely used cement in dental practice. The material originated from dissatisfaction with the clinical performance of silicate cement. The basic composition of glass ionomer cements consists of calcium - alumino - silicate glass powder and an aqueous solution of acrylic acid .homo or copolymers. These materials were shown to undergo specific adhesion with hydroxyapatite. They are used in a variety of clinical applications due to properties such as fluoride release over a prolonged period coupled with esthetic qualities. In recent years, considerable changes in the formulations of GIC have been made to enhance their properties. This article presents an overview of the recent modifications in glass ionomer technology for dental applications.
