Halloysite Nanotubes as Nanofillers to Reinforce Glass Ionomer Cements

James Holder, Lisa McNally & Michele Barbour
Glass ionomer cements (GICs) have many clinically favourable properties such as adhesion to tooth tissues and moisture tolerance, but have low strength compared with other direct dental restorative materials, and this limits their applications. Nanomaterials have shown promise in reinforcing biomaterials, including cements. The aim of this study was to explore whether the compressive strength of a GIC could be enhanced using halloysite nanotubes (HNTs), a naturally occurring hollow tubular material derived from clays. 1-15%...
