n Journal of Minimum Intervention in Dentistry - How do both Strontium and calcium-based GIC compare clinically? [October 25, 2018] - preliminary systematic literature searches

Volume 12 Number 6

Search result: Ten clinical trials were found and traced concerning high-viscosity conventional GIC. No trials were identified comparing strontium or calcium low-viscosity conventional GIC. All identified trials compared Fuji IX for strontium and Ketac Molar for calcium based GIC.

Clinical outcomes: The overall results suggest no difference between Fuji IX and Ketac Molar in the clinical outcomes of: recurrent caries, occlusal wear and colour match. Two of the 10 trials suggest a higher failure rate for Ketac Molar after 1 and 2 years. However, eight trials indicated no difference in failure rate after 1, 2, 3 and 6.3 years.

State of evidence and recommendations: All evidence from clinical, controlled trials. This is a new 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]
