The Age of Automix

Glass ionomers have a long history of restorative success and oral health benefits, but capsule or hand-mix delivery systems have led to a decline in their use. GC Fuji® Automix LC is a resin-reinforced, light-cured glass ionomer restorative that meets the full range of performance and efficiency requirements for exemplary patient care. Dentists who do not keep capsule mixers in their office or who prefer injectable restoratives may have been missing out on the benefits of glass ionomer technology. However, they no longer need to avoid these products because of capsule delivery, as the GC Fuji® brand of glass ionomers is now available in an automix delivery, with an ergonomic dispenser that offers precise placement into the preparation with a movable tip.

Reliable Glass Ionomer Technology

For over 40 years, GC Fuji® glass ionomer products have been well-known in dentistry for their quality and reliability. Now, building on their extensive expertise in this area, GC is proud to introduce the next generation bioactive restorative: GC Fuji® Automix LC.

  • Hassle-free delivery with an ergonomic dispenser (automixing)
  • Bioactive material with high fluoride release
  • High bond strength, even in presence of saliva
  • Excellent radiopacity (270% Al)
  • Suitability for pediatric and geriatric applications, and as a base under composite restorations
  • No need for etchant and adhesive, resulting in fewer steps
  • Virtually no post-operative sensitivity

GC Fuji® Automix LC provides an exceptional marginal seal and forms a strong chemical bond to tooth structure as well as composite resins. Therefore, it is an excellent choice as a base or liner under composite restorations.

The chart below shows that GC Fuji® Automix LC can be used for a wide range of indications in primary and permanent teeth.

“This particular solution, I think, has changed the way we deliver glass ionomer to the tooth.”

-Dr. Bob Lowe


Excellent Fluoride Release and Recharge


There are many benefits to giving your patients bioactive restorations. GC Fuji® Automix LC features exceptional fluoride release, which can be recharged with fluoridated oral care products. Provide additional fluoride release by introducing MI Paste Plus®, into your patients’ daily oral care routine. Because MI Paste Plus® also provides bio-available calcium and phosphate ions (CPP-ACP)*, as well as fluoride (900ppm), the combined use of both products will restore and remineralize your patients’ teeth.

*Casein phosphopeptides (CPP) are derived from milk casein. Do not use this material on patients with a proven or suspected milk protein allergy and/or with a sensitivity or allergy to benzoate preservatives.
