Light-cured resin-modified glass-ionomer cements (RM-GIC) were developed as restorative materials, to address the shortcomings of conventional glass-ionomer restorative materials (C-GICs) [Nagamine et al., 1997] which, owing to their ability to leach fluoride into the surrounding tooth structure, significantly influenced the demineralisation-remineralisation cycle and thus produced an anti-caries effect.
Topics include the characteristics and needs of the patient (including diagnosis and stabilization), the restoration and its environment (including applied biology of the teeth, the pathology of caries, and properties of restorative materials) clinical management and techniques (including intracoronal restorations, deep cavities, root canal, periodontal treatment, occlusion management, aesthetics and impression materials), fixed and removable prosthodontics, and problems such as tooth surface loss.
