n Journal of Minimum Intervention in Dentistry - Pulp response conventional GIC versus Calcium hydroxide (CaOH) cement [November 13, 2015] : preliminary systematic literature searches

Volume 9, Issue 5
  • ISSN : 1998-801X


Three clinical trials with a laboratory component were found.

There appears to be no difference in the pulp response between conventional glass-ionomer cement (C-GIC) and CaOH-cement (CaOH is considered to be the gold standard in pulp treatment due to its high tissue supporting properties. Lack of difference between C-GIC and CaOH suggest high biocompatibility of C-GIC concerning pulp tissue).
The current level of clinical evidence to this topic appears to some extent contradictive and may still be limited in quantity and quality. Thus more trials are needed in order to confirm the current results.
['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]
