Evaluation of clinical performance of self etching-self adhesive composite (Constic) ® compared with total etching composite system in primary teeth
AUTHOR(S): Awwad-Ismael and Kabbesh-Khaled
Aim of the study is to evaluate the clinical performance of self-etching, self-adhesive composite (Constic ®) in comparison with conventional composite with total-etch bonding system in primary teeth.
Materials and methods: included comparing clinical performance of 2 different types of composite resins. Working time, restoration failure (recurrent caries – breakage – loss of restoration), post-treatment sensitivity, development of gingival abscess, recurrent caries visible on x-ray, radiographic abscess or periapical lesion were studied for both restorations. Clinical and radiographic observation was done every 3 months for 9 months for both restorations.
Results: Clinical results showed substantial differences between the two types of composite in favor of self- etching, self-adhesive composite (Constic®) against the conventional one when working time length was compared (p< 0.0005).
However, clinical results over the observation duration of both restorations showed that they have almost the same clinical performance with no statistically significant difference.
