n Journal of Minimum Intervention in Dentistry - Two-year study on the clinical performance of the glass ionomer-based restorative system EQUIA




Today's restorative therapy must meet a whole bouquet of requirements in terms of material properties, aesthetics and efficiency - and support the goals of minimally invasive dentistry. A range of suitable materials is available for this latter purpose, including composite resins and glass ionomer cements (GIC). Modern restorative systems combine these two materials, with the objective of harnessing the benefits of both - and this includes the EQUIA two-stage restorative system that consists of a GIC component and a composite-resin coating. Several studies have confirmed the high performance of the two-stage approach. The study presented below has shown, among other issues, that EQUIA delivers promising results in posterior class I cavities over a period of 2 years. First published in: MID 20013; 5: 10.
