Geristore

Features

  • Geristore is a dual-cure, self-adhesive, resin glass ionomer formula that contains fluoride and has over seventeen uses
  • It is hydrophilic, so it will bond in the presence of moisture and blood, to all 5 surfaces plus the gingiva
  • Geristore is biocompatible for soft tissue and teeth
    • Studies show gingival cell re-attachment to the material, making it excellent for sub-gingival procedures
  • It is available in a dual-cartridge auto-mixing syringe, making it quick and easy to use
  • Auto-mix and intra-oral tips are available
  • Advantages
  • Applications
  • Features & Benefits
  • Multi-purpose glass ionomer Bis-GMA composite base for class III & V restorations
    • Versatile applications reduce inventory
  • Can be used as a base because it has fluoride releasing capabilities
  • Adheres to dentin and cementum
  • Seals and bonds to amalgam
  • Excellent for subgingival restorations
    • Biocompatible with connective tissue
  • Self-adhesive properties make Geristore exceptionally easy to use with no need for retentive cavity design, eliminating chair time usually devoted to cavity preparation
  • Resistant to marginal leakage and abrasion
  • Class V's or other low abrasive areas
  • Base or liner for crowns, bridges, amalgams, composites, porcelain, bonded inlays, onlays, or heat cured composites
  • Cementation of cast crown or bridge
  • Intermediate filling material for deciduous teeth
  • Cementation of gold inlays/onlays
  • Placement of bonded amalgams
  • PFM repair
  • Cementation of orthodontic bands and brackets
  • Cementation of Maryland Bridges
  • Esthetic temporary for broken cusps
  • Endo-perforations
  • Endo-retro-fillings
  • Cracked teeth
  • Cementation of stainless steel crowns (metal)
  • Cementation of heat-cured composites
  • Amalgam margin repair
  • Subgingival restorations; fractured roots, deep carious lesions, root resorption lesions
  • Retrograde fillings and root perforations
  • Restoring and sealing overdenture abutments
  • Pulp capping for mechanical pulp exposure
  • Furcations
