Share Abstract:

PMID: 21716990

As the population ages, an increased prevalence of gingival recessions and root surfaces exposed to the oral environment has been reported. This in turn causes an increased risk for caries; it is estimated that the incidence of root caries in those older than 65 years of age is 23.7%. Published data support the use of glass ionomer as a restorative material that seems particularly suitable for restoring root lesions; the material has good esthetic and anticariogenic properties and has gained wide acceptance among practitioners. A minimally invasive approach for restoring interproximal root caries lesions with glass ionomer is described. (Quintessence Int 2011;42:611614)
