Quick Reference

A resin composite restorative material with active filler particles. It is a hybridization of glass ionomer and composite resin. Giomers contain pre-reacted surface or fully reacted glass-ionomer particles made of fluorosilicate glass that have been reacted with polyacrylic acid prior to being incorporated into the resin; these particles have been shown to be capable of sustained fluoride release. See also resin composite.
