|Estimated Study Completion Date :||March 18, 2022|
Active Comparator: Conventional Glass Ionomer
Selective removal of carious tissue to soft dentin. Deep carious dentin will be lined by a conventional glass ionomer, followed by a composite resin restoration.
Device: Glass Ionomer
A conventional glass ionomer will be used to cover deep carious dentin after a selective removal of caries lesion to soft dentin procedure.
Experimental: Self-etching Adhesive
Selective removal of carious tissue to soft dentin. Deep carious dentin will not be lined and a self-etching adhesive will cover the tissue, followed by a composite resin restoration.
Device: Self-etching Adhesive
A Self-etching adhesive will be used to cover deep carious dentin after a selective removal of caries lesion to soft dentin procedure.
- Restoration integrity [ Time Frame: 2 years ]The FDI Criteria will be used for the direct clinical evaluation of restorations.
- Pulp vitality [ Time Frame: 2 years ]Pulp vitality will be evaluated by means of symptoms reported by the patient, normal response upon thermal tests, no pain upon percussion, absence of periapical lesions (periapical radiography) and absence of infectious processes such as fistula.
- Radiographic progression [ Time Frame: 2 years ]Lesion progression at the x-ray will be monitored through qualitative analysis with the technique of digital subtraction of the radiographic images (radiolucent area under restorations) over time.
- Changes in pulp chamber morphology [ Time Frame: 2 years ]For the qualitative analysis of the depth of the lesion and the deposition of tertiary dentin, the pairs of radiographic images (baseline radiographs versus control radiographs) will be assessed and compared.
