Glass Ionomer Restorative Eliminates Steps for Faster Treatment



Patients who are prone to caries often can be the most restless, so speed is important in treating them. 3M’s fluoride-releasing Ketac Universal Aplicap Glass Ionomer Restorative is designed to give dentists a solution with fewer steps, easy handling, and reduced chair time.

The self-adhesive and self-curing restorative eliminates the need for conditioning, coating, or light-curing steps for a more efficient procedure. Dentists simply place and sculpt it, and they’re finished. Its low stickiness adds to its easy handling.

Plus, it can be used for restricted stress-bearing Class I and II restorations due to its compressive strength and surface hardness. It can be placed in bulk as well, eliminating the need for layering and giving dentists an economical option for a general bulk restorative material.

The Ketac Universal Aplicap Glass Ionomer Restorative is available in an Aplicap delivery system with a new nozzle designed to give dentists better access to deep cavities. It comes in 6 shades. For further information, visit
