Abstract

Pediatric Restorative Dentistry plays a major role in the management of carious primary teeth. Pediatric Dentistry has come a long way, retrospectively different tooth colored restoratives were used to treat carious teeth and the first of them being the silicate cements till the emergence of GICs, the present era of Nano technology has given a new dimension to all aspects of dentistry including restorative dentistry, by incorporating nano sized filler particles. Among all the broader scope of pediatric dentistry, conservative restoration of primary teeth continues to be the most important issue today. This study was undertaken to evaluate and compare the survival rate of RMGIC and conventional GICs along with secondary caries detection in class I cavity preparations in primary molars. The results of the present study depict the fact that both materials performed clinically good for a period of 6 months the resin-modified Nano Ionomers showed lower rates of failure and offered advantages over the conventional GIC for restoring class I caries in primary molars.
