n Journal of Minimum Intervention in Dentistry - Have glass-ionomer cements (GIC) a higher antibacterial effect than composite resins? [October 14, 2014] : preliminary systematic literature searches




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.

The overall results suggest a higher antibacterial effect for resin-modified GIC (RM-GIC) up to 6 months.
All evidence from one clinical, controlled trial, only. This is still an emerging topic and the quality of the existing evidence requires further assessment.
