Search result: One clinical trial was found and traced concerning resin-modified GIC (RM-GIC). The material was Fuji II LC (compared to: Tetric Flow and Helioseal F). No trials were identified comparing conventional GIC (C-GIC) with composite resin.
Clinical outcomes: The overall results suggest a higher antibacterial effect for resin-modified GIC (RM-GIC) up to 6 months.
State of evidence and recommendations: All evidence from one clinical, controlled trial, only. This is still an emerging topic and the quality of the existing evidence requires further assessment.
['Preliminary Systematic Literature Searches' are based on SYSTEM's periodic systematic searches of the dental literature and provide first overviews over existing clinical evidence but are limited in the number of databases searched, as well as the assessment of precision and internal validity of results and thus do not replace the need for a full systematic review report to the topic]
