High Strength Glass Ionomer Cement for Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART)

Product Information

GC Fuji IX ART is a purpose designed conventional setting glass ionomer cement for restoring posterior cavities using the ART technique.  The kit contains powder & liquid for hand mixing of the cement as well as varnish to protect the cement once manipulated and in place.  The Fuji IX liquid also functions as a cavity conditioner which is used prior to placement to ensure optimum chemical bonding of the restoration to the cavity walls. 

The Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (A.R.T.) is a procedure based on excavating carious cavities in teeth using hand instruments only and restoring them with an adhesive filling material (glass ionomer). This procedure was originally developed because millions of people in less industrialized countries and special groups like refugees and people living in deprived communities are unable to obtain dental care. Their teeth generally decay until removal is required. These people have not benefited from the developments that have brought about improved oral health in the industrialized world. The absence of electricity and the traditional idea that restorative dental care requires electrically driven equipment are the main reasons underlying this situation. In contrast the A.R.T. approach enables treatment of cavities in teeth of people residing in areas where electricity is not available, or where the community cannot afford expensive dental equipment.

Why choose GC Fuji IX ART?

  • Chemically bonds to both enamel and dentin
  • Strontium based glass ionomer
    • For good radiopacity and snapset characteristics
    • Strontium will mimic calcium in the formation of strontium hydroxyapatite and strontium fluoroapatite to affect internal remineralization within the tooth structure
    • Research has shown that a strontium-based glass ionomer placed in calcium-containing environment (saliva) will result in calcium ion diffusing into the glass ionomer surface achieving a surface strengthening effect
  • Fluoride is released from the restoration to prevent and arrest caries
  • Biocompatible - does not cause irritation to pulp and gingiva, and has a co-efficient of thermal expansion similar to tooth structure
