OBJECTIVES To evaluate the time dependence of physical-mechanical performance of glass ionomer restoratives. METHODS The physical-mechanical properties of Ketac Molar Easymix in comparison to four handmix glass ionomer restoratives were evaluated by testing the compressive and flexural strength, acid erosion and solubility. By testing the properties in the early and late setting phase it was determined how fast the level of material characteristics is achieved. IR spectroscopy was used for… CONTINUE READING
