Question Asked on 4/30/2014

I am using RMGI for liners and pulp-capping; why should I switch?

Answer Response by Dr. Nuñez on 4/29/2014

TheraCal LC promotes hydroxyl-apatite formation through ion/water exchange with the tooth structure. Resin-modified glass ionomers are unable to promote hydroxyl-apatite formation and have been shown to be cytotoxic to the pulpal complex.  Due to the inclusion of polyacrylic acid, RMGI’s may actually inhibit apatite formation.
