The Effect of Capsulated Glass Ionomer Cements on the pH of a Lactic Acid Solution: An In-Vitro Study 316-318
17, Vallal Pari Nagar, Mogappair, Chennai â€“ 600050, India.
Aim: This study the evaluated interactions of capsulated glass ionomer cements (GIC) with an aqueous lactic acid solution.
Materials and Methods: GIC fuji cap II and GC fuji cap IX were tested and compared to vials containing a lactic acid aqueous solution with no specimen as the control group. 16 specimens of each material were made according to the manufacturerâ€™s instructions. The pH of the solution was measured immediately after 24 hours and at the end of the week. The statistical significance in the pH of the storage solution was determined by using oneâ€“way ANOVA.
Result: All the materials were able to increase the pH of the lactic acid solution and both the materials were statistically significant.
Conclusion: These findings can be helpful in predicting the performance of these materials under clinical conditions.
