In Arbour Estates Dental, we have traditionally used resin modified glass ionomer (RMGI) liner/bases for deep cavities and composite procedures. By their nature, RMGI liners are typically fluid materials that can adapt more readily to the internal aspects of a cavity preparation. In the past three years, our practice has become accustomed to using RMGI liner/base products with almost every procedure. As a dental assistant, it’s crucial to know when and why RMGI liner/base products should be used as well as what your role is in placing the product.
Arbour Estates Dental uses a RMGI liner/base on practically every procedure because of the added benefits for patients. In addition to providing a foundation for the restoration, RMGI liner/bases provide extra protection for your patients by preventing microleakage under the restoration, inhibiting bacterial growth, reducing sensitivity, and releasing fluoride into the tooth. Additionally, they’re very easy to place and offer versatile protection for many types of restorations.
Having the right tools and information are the first steps for having a perfect smile and here at ARBOUR ESTATES DENTAL we are focused on offering you personalized care and a service to help you feel more comfortable and confident with a dazzling smile.
