Advantages

Conventional glass ionomers offer many biotherapeutic advantages (Table 13-1). They provide long term release of fluoride ions, ability to bond to tooth structure and are very biocompatible. Because they posses a coefficient of thermal expansion similar to tooth structure, they are able to provide excellent marginal seal around the preparation. They have adequate strength and release fluoride. These materials are not very expensive.
