ABSTRACT:The present study aims to clinically evaluate the performance of a glass hybrid glass ionomer cement (GIC), Equia forte (GC India) and a bulk fill composite, Tetric N Ceram (Ivoclar Vivadent) in restoration of class II carious lesions in primary molars for a period of 12 months. A total of 39 patients of 5-9 years with occlusoproximal carious lesion on primary maxillary or mandibular molars were selected and randomly allotted into two groups i.e Group A (Equia Forte) and Group B (Tetric N Ceram). A total of 78 restorations (39 teeth for each group) was placed using Equia Forte and Tetric N Ceram using a split mouth design and were evaluated for a period of 12 months at regular time intervals using FDI criteria by two blinded examiners for esthetic, functional and biological properties. The data were analyzed using one way ANOVA for intragroup comparison and student t test for intergroup comparison. There was no statistically significant difference seen at baseline, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months for esthetic, functional and biological properties within the group. On inter group comparison, there was no statistically significant result observed except for functional property at 6 months with a p value of 0.02. The current study suggests that both Equia Forte and Tetric N Ceram can be a choice of restorative material in class II carious lesions in primary molars.
