n Journal of Minimum Intervention in Dentistry - In cavities of comparable size and tooth location, do ART* restorations have a better survival rate then restorations with resin-modified glass ionomer cement (RMGIC) after cavity preparation with conventional high-speed drill? [2008] : grey literature




[This document has been captured as part of the JMID-section for Grey- literature. Grey (or gray) literature refers to informally published written material that may be difficult to trace via conventional databases and/or journals as it is not formally published or is not widely accessible. However, Grey literature may still be an important source of information. Examples of grey literature include e.g.: patents, reports, working documents or unpublished manuscripts]

The systematic literature search identified 1 randomized control trials (RCT) including 2 separate datasets with relevance to the review question. The analysis of the datasets found no difference in the success rate of both types of restoration after 6 and 12 months. The trial has limited internal validity due to unclear randomization procedure (allocation concealment) and evaluator blinding. Further high quality RCTs are needed to confirm the observed result. It is recommended that reporting of such future trials should follow the CONSORT statement.
