Instructions For Use

This is a radiopaque glass polyalkenoate restorative cement with chemical adhesion to enamel and dentine. GI Fill (Glass Ionomer Filling Cement) is available in the shades A1,A3 and B3 and has an enamel-like translucency.

Fields Of Applications

  1. For restoration of deciduous teeth (especially class 1)
  2. Repair of V-shaped defects and enamel as well as root erosions in the cervical area incl. Class Vfillings.
  3. Cavities with carious lesions.
  4. Fillings of class III and small fillings of class I (incl. Extended fissure sealing) as well as build-up fillings for crowns, linings.

Method Of Use

Creation of retention generally is not necessary because of the good adhesion of GI Fill (Glass Ionomer Filling Cement) to the dentine. However, undercuts provide additional hold to the filling. The layer thickness of the fillings should not be less than 1mm.

In case of carious defects prepare and clean the cavity (for instance with a 3% hydrogen peroxide) and then rinse carefully with water and dry.

In case of a remaining dentine thickness of more than 1-1.5 mm an additional lining is not necessary. A pulp protection with calcium hydroxide is recommended if dentine thickness is less than 1.5mm.

The working time after mixing is 2-3min (the temperature should be 15-230C).

After having inserted the material into the cavity, the setting time is approximately 2 ½ min.

Then cover again with varnish. The best results for final polishing can be obtained about 24 hrs after the filling has been inserted.

Precautions
