A recent study published in Prilozi (2011, 32(1):283-94;http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21822195) suggests that fluoride-releasing conventional glass ionomer, resin modified glass-ionomer, compomer and glass ionomer cement restorations help to reduce secondary caries in permanent immature and deciduous teeth.
The study, authored by E Giogievska of the
Paediatric and Preventative Department of the SsCyril and Methodius
University of Skopje, Macedonia, involved the placement of 270
restorations (135 in deciduous teeth) evaluated per criteria established
by Ryge after one, six, 12, and 18 months.
