Main Article Content

วีระชาติ ยุทธชาวิทย์


            Cervical lesion including carious lesions and non-carious cervical lesions (eg. erosion, abrasion and abfraction) can be restored with resin composite or glass ionomer cements. Glass ionomer cements are used infrequently because of technical difficulties related to the material’s stickiness. This article suggests the technique which modified customized tube to be anterior and premolar area for application in glass ionomer cement restoration including methods, indications and clinical considerations in using this technique.
