Glass ionomer cement (GIC) is a self-adhesive restorative material. it is a combination of fluoro-aluminosilicate glass powder and polyacrylic acid liquid. It is a versatile material and has a broad spectrum of uses in restorative and pediatric dentistry. It exhibits a potent anti-cariogenic action.

GIC (Glass Ionomer Cement) luting cement is a type of dental cement used primarily for the cementation of indirect restorations, such as crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and orthodontic bands. It is specifically formulated to provide a secure and durable bond between the restoration and the prepared tooth structure. GIC luting cement shares some similarities with GIC restorative cement but is designed with specific properties for luting applications.

Here are some key characteristics and uses of GIC luting cement:

  1. Adhesion and sealing: GIC luting cement exhibits good adhesion to both the tooth structure and the restoration, creating a strong bond. This helps to seal the restoration margins, preventing microleakage and reducing the risk of secondary decay or restoration failure.

  2. Biocompatibility: Similar to other GIC formulations, GIC luting cement is biocompatible, meaning it is well-tolerated by the surrounding oral tissues. This makes it suitable for use in patients with sensitivities or allergies to other dental materials.

  3. Fluoride release: GIC luting cement can release fluoride ions over time. This provides potential benefits in terms of reducing secondary caries and promoting remineralization of the tooth structure.

  4. Limited expansion and contraction: GIC luting cement undergoes minimal expansion and contraction during the setting process. This property helps to minimize the risk of internal stresses that could compromise the bond or cause discomfort for the patient.

  5. Dual-cure capability: Some GIC luting cements have a dual-cure capability. They can be light-cured to expedite the setting process, ensuring faster initial strength. If necessary, they can also self-cure in the absence of light, allowing for complete polymerization in areas that are not adequately light-accessible.

GIC luting cement is commonly used for the following applications:

  • Cementation of crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and other indirect restorations.
  • Orthodontic band cementation.
  • Cementation of posts and cores in endodontically treated teeth.
  • Temporary cementation of restorations.
  • Core build-up procedures.

It's important to note that specific instructions and protocols for using GIC luting cement may vary among different manufacturers and products. Factors such as mixing ratios, working times, and cleaning protocols should be followed according to the manufacturer's recommendations for optimal results.

As with any dental material, the selection and application of GIC luting cement should be based on the specific clinical situation, the type of restoration, and the dentist's professional judgment. Consulting with a dental professional will ensure the appropriate use of GIC luting cement for each individual case.
