[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 Examples of grey literature include e.g.: patents, reports, working documents or unpublished manuscripts]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 17 trials for review and analysis. Of these, 12 trial including 35 separate data sets with relevance to the review question could be traced in full version. The results of all data sets from randomized control trials confirmed the hypothesis that both materials have similar caries preventive properties. These results are limited by potential systematic error/bias that may have been included in the trials. High-quality randomized control trials are needed in order to provide stronger evidence. It is recommended that reporting of such future trials should follow the CONSORT statement.
