The evaluation of surface porosity of different glass ionomer cements

AUTHOR(S): Elif Ok, Hakan Kamalak, Canan Aksu Canbay and Oktay Yiğit
ABSTRACT:The purpose of this study is to investigate the evaluation of surface porosity of 5 different glass ionomer cements; EQUIA Forte Fil (GC, Tokyo, Japan, EQF), Fuji II LC Light-Cured Glass-Ionomer Cement for Restorative Filling (GC Corp, Tokyo, Japan, F2S), Fuji IX Conventional glass ionomer Cement for Restorative Filling (GC Corp, Tokyo, Japan, F9S),Glass carbomer (Glass Carbomer, GCP), Ionoseal (Glass ionomer cement, VOCO, Cuxhaven, IOS). They were filled in teflon molds (height: 4 mm, width: 6 mm) and stored in distilled water at 37 0C / 24 hours. The surface purosite of the materials was examined with a stereomicroscope (Olympus SZX-7) at 50x, 100X, 200X and 500X magnification. As a result of the obtained findings, it was determined that IOS has the least pore surface and F9S has the most porous surface.
