  • Abstract

    Management of carious lesions involves four steps – control over bacterial infection, reduction of risk levels, remineralization, and long-term follow-up. Glass-ionomer cement is a durable and a reliable material to be used for restoration in primary teeth. It is biocompatible, anticariogenic and has remineralization properties which make it a preferable option for treating carious lesions. Although various restorative materials are available for restoration, its remineralization properties along with anticariogenic activity overweigh its use over other materials.
