[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 Examples of grey literature include e.g.: patents, reports, working documents or unpublished manuscripts]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 7 articles in compliance with the broad inclusion criteria. Of these, 4 articles were rejected due to insufficient internal validity. Three articles were accepted. Clinical heterogeneity was observed and articles grouped accordingly (see section "4. Heterogeneity and META analysis"). There appears to be no difference between both type of materials. Both appear to have anticaries effects. Further randomized control trials are needed. It is recommended that reporting of such studies should follow the CONSORT statement.
