KAMEL EARAR, ANCA PORUMB, RUXANDRA MATEI, SIMONA CAVALU, RAMONA AMINA POPOVICI, SERGIU FOCSANEANU, NAZEM DAWOD, ADRIANA SACELEANU, LIANA TODOR THE GLASS IONOMER CEMENT REINFORCED WITH SILVER– PREMISE IN CHOOSING THE TEETH PROPOSED FOR ORTHODONTIC PURPOSE EXTRACTION The glass ionomer cements present very good bio compatibility especially due to the presence of Fluor in their composition. The reactivity from the dental pulp to the ionomer cements is also favorable, even in the case of the profound cavities. The metallic ionomer cements are obturation materials that tend to replace the amalgams and were created by adding of metallic alloys to the glass powder for the purpose of improving the mechanic properties. The resistance to abrasion of the glass ionomer cements reinforced with Ag is increased compared to the ionomer cements, being close to that of the composite resins with micro filling, but inferior to the amalgams or composites for the posterior area. All these properties of the metallic glass ionomers recommend their utilization in accomplishing the definitive obturations of the permanent teeth from the lateral area, where the physiognomic aspect is not on the first place and where it is necessary a material with fast grip. The physical-chemical qualities and the bio compatibility of the glass ionomers reinforced with particles of silver was our premise in their utilization for the obturation of the molars of six years in children.
