Glass ionomer cements were developed by Wilson and Kent in the laboratory of the Government chemist, London 1972. Since their development, glass ionomers have increasingly become an essential part of the dentist’s armamentarium for providing treatment that conserves tooth structure and assists in its remineralization while maintaining aesthetic appeal. The glass-ionomer family of materials is one of the most versatile of the acid-base cements, and it has many applications, particularly in dentistry.
