glass ionomer cement

a dental cement used for small restorations on the proximal surfaces of anterior teeth, for restoration of eroded areas at the gingival margin, as base material under dental restorations, and as a luting agent for restorations and orthodontic bands. It releases fluoride ions, which can provide some anticaries activity.

Dental fixative produced by mixing a powder prepared from a calcium aluminosilicate glass with an aqueous solution of polyacrylic acid.

glass ionomer cement (īon´əmər),

n a dental cement of low strength and toughness produced by mixing a powder prepared from a calcium aluminosilicate glass and a liquid prepared from an aqueous solution of prepared polyacrylic acid; used mainly for small restorations on the proximal surfaces of anterior teeth and for restoration of eroded areas at the gingival margin.
