[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 Examples of grey literature include e.g.: patents, reports, working documents or unpublished manuscripts]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 8 trials including 35 separate data sets with relevance to the review question. The results of the data sets from randomized control trials confirmed the hypothesis that resin-modified glass ionomer cement is as caries preventive as resin-based fissure sealant material after 24 months. These results are limited by potential systematic error/bias that may have been included in the trials. High-quality randomized control trials are needed to confirm the results after 24 months and to investigate differences in the caries preventive effect after longer period (>24 months). It is recommended that reporting of such future trials should follow the CONSORT statement.
