Nanotechnology makes our glass ionomer unique. The Clicker™ Dispenser makes it easier.
Ketac™ N100 Light Curing Nano-Ionomer Restorative is the first paste/paste, resin-modified glass ionomer material based on bonded nanofiller technology. This technology adds benefits not usually associated with glass ionomers, resulting in a whole NEW category of glass ionomer restorative: the nano-ionomer.
Faster, Easier Mixing and Dispensing
Meets a Wide Range of Clinical Indications:
The Alternative Esthetic Glass Ionomer Solution
In a clinical evaluation, over 60% of the dentists who used Ketac™ N100 Light Curing Nano-Ionomer Restorative in their practice rated the final overall aesthetics the same or better than their current composite restorative material.*

AFMs Compare Surface Smoothness
The study below uses an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) to compare the surface smoothness of four restorative dental materials after being polished with a diamond-impregnated polishing system.
The color bar topographically distinguishes between the high peaks and lower valleys of the four products – Ketac™ N100 Light-Curing Glass Ionomer Restorative, a composite material (Tetric EvoCeram®) and two competitive resin-modified glass ionomers (Fuji II™ LC and Fuji Filling™ LC).
High Fluoride Release
Ketac™ N100 Light-Curing Glass Ionomer Restorative shows high fluoride release that is rechargeable after being exposed to a topical fluoride source. Additionally, in-vitro tests showed Ketac N100 restorative’s ability to create a caries inhibition zone after acid exposure.
High Wear Resistance
Restorations made with Ketac™ N100 Light-Curing Glass Ionomer Restorative look great and perform well in abrasive environments. When tested against competitive resin-modified glass ionomers, Ketac N100 restorative shows a higher wear resistance, making it an ideal glass ionomer solution in posterior applications.
