Title:  Clinical performance of aesthetic restorative materials in primary teeth according to the FDI criteria

Abstract:  Aim The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical performance of three different restorative materials in primary teeth according to the FDI criteria. Materials and methods Resin-modified glass ionomer cement, compomer and composite resin restorations (n=93) were made in 31 patients. The restorations were clinically evaluated at baseline, 6th, 12th and 18th month with the FDI criteria. Results The cumulative survival rate after 18 months was found to be 90.3% for resin modified glass ionomer cement restorations, 100% for compomer restorations and 80.6% for composite resin restorations. Statistically significant increase in surface roughness, colour mismatch, anatomic form loss and marginal deterioration were detected in resin-modified glass ionomer group (p<0.05). The most frequent reason for restoration failure in composite resin group was restoration fractures. Conclusions The resin-modified glass ionomer restorations necessitates close follow-up because of the risk of increase in surface roughness, changes in colour and loss in anatomic form and marginal adaptation. The clinical performance of compomer restorations is superior to resin-modified glass ionomer and composite resin restorations in primary teeth.
