n Journal of Minimum Intervention in Dentistry - Glass ionomer cements deliver the same caries prevention as resin-based fissure sealants




The purpose of a systematic review on the caries-preventive effect of glass ionomer and resin-based fissure sealants on permanent teeth was to appraise the evidence on the caries-preventive effect of glass ionomer cement (GIC) in relation to resin-based fissure sealants. The investigation, which included a meta-analysis, found no evidence that either material was superior to the other in the prevention of dental caries. Thus, both materials appear equally suitable for clinical application as a fissure sealant material. Apex spoke with one of the review authors, Dr Steffen Mickenautsch, about the study and the results.
