n Evidence Based Summaries in Dentistry - Remineralisation of hard tooth tissue : resin-modified glass-ionomer cement vs. non-fluoride containing composite resin

Caries is the most common reason for replacing restorations and an ideal restorative material would have, as one of its properties, the ability to prevent demineralisation and / or promote remineralisation at the cavity margin. Since ionic fluoride has been shown to reduce the incidence of caries at the population level, both in the water supply and in other vehicles such as toothpaste, considerable attention has been focused on fluoride-containing restorative materials. Resin-modified glass-ionomers contain fluoride. The objective of this comparison is to determine whether fluoride containing RM-GICs provide a higher protection against demineralisation / encourage remineralisation of hard tooth tissue than composite resins that do not contain fluoride.
