KETAC-MOLAR is a conventional, metal-free glass ionomer cement that has been specially designed as filling material for the lateral tooth area. Its improved mechanical properties, its pack-able consistency and greater radio capacity make it well-suited for linings under composite fillings of cavity classes I and II, for core build up under crowns, for primary-tooth fillings and for cavity class I restorations in non-occluded regions. Additional areas of indication include cavity class V fillings when aesthetic aspects do not play a major role, and temporary fillings for cavity classes I and II. Due to its wide range of indications, its quality criteria and its pack-able consistency KETAC-MOLAR can also be used as a temporary amalgam substitute.
- High flexural strength – reduces the risk of restoration fracture
- Adhesion to enamel and dentin – ideal for Minimal Intervention Dentistry (MID) and Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART)
- Long-term fluoride release – helps prevent secondary carries
- Low acid erosion – maintains excellent marginal integrity of restorations
