Abstract

A technique is presented for the expedient placement of interim buildups of type II glass ionomer cement as an aid for endodontic isolation of broken down teeth. The bond strength of glass ionomer cement to tooth structure is sufficient to withstand the forces of endodontic manipulation without the need for reinforcing pins. The material also shows promise as an intermediate endodontic seal. Variations of this technique are presented to address some other common isolation problems and the esthetic needs of the patient.
