Comparative evaluation of compressive strength of conventional glass ionomer cement and glass ionomer cement modified with nano-particles
AUTHOR(S): Insha Showkat, Seema Chaudhary and Ashish Amit Sinha
Glass ionomer cement (GIC) possesses certain properties of adhesive, biocompatibility, and fluoride releasing but its certain disadvantages led to its various modifications.
Aim: To evaluate and compare the effect of various additives on the flexural strength of glass ionomer cement.
Materials and Method: 30 samples for evaluation of compressive strength were equally divided into 3 groups: Group 1- Control (Conventional GIC- Non modified), Group 2: GIC Powder modified with 3% TiO2 and Group 3: GIC Powder modified with 10% Nano Hydroxyapatite.
Result: The mean compressive strength value of Group 5 showed statistically significant higher flexural strength among all the groups (177.14 ± 0.81).
Conclusion: The results of the study revealed that glass ionomer cement powder can be modified with nano-hydroxyapatite and nanotitanium to improve its compressive strength.
