Over a 5-year period, 1435 teeth in patients under recall in a general dental practice have received cast restorations luted with a glass ionomer cement. The material has demonstrated an exceptionally low rate of secondary caries, excellent retention of castings, and acceptable compatability with the dental pulp.
