B. ZOE based sealer
C. Obturating material specifically for deciduous tooth
D. Is a bioceramic



The correct answer is A. Rapid setting resin ionomer, has the capacity to bond with the tooth

Geristore: 
• Geristore is a dual-cure, self-adhesive, resin glass ionomer formula that contains fluoride. It is a rapid setting resin ionomer (making it very suitable for repairing perforations when compared to MTA) 

• It is hydrophilic, so it will bond in the presence of moisture and blood. 
• It has low coefficient of thermal expansion and low polymerization shrinkage. 
• It's often recommended when the periodontium is extensively involved. It is biocompatible for soft tissue and teeth - Studies show gingival cell re-attachment to the material, making it excellent for sub-gingival procedures. 

Applications: 
• Subgingival restorations for root perforation and resorptive lesions. 
• Retrograde filling material 
• Root caries lesions 
• Liner in direct pulp capping 
• In class 5, and conservative class 1 & class 2 restorations
