Orthodontic Glass Ionomer Luting Cement

Orthodontic Glass Ionomer Luting Cement

A glass ionomer luting cement specially optimised for use in orthodontic procedures.

It adheres chemically to both tooth substance and non-precious metals to optimise retention. Rapidly increasing pH during setting provides the cement with excellent biocompatibility. The material contains a high level of fluoride helping prevent the build up of plaque. The glass component is finely ground and sieved to produce an average particle size of less than 5 microns (<5μm) – This ensures a very low film thickness and excellent results in the cementation of orthodontic brackets and bands.
