Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to extend our knowledge concerning the clinical performance of two dental filling materials in molars. The study will compare two high-strength glass-ionomer filling materials.

The investigators hypothesize that after two years (1) the clinical performance of both filling materials shows a similar survival rate, (2) the ChemFil Rock fillings show similar or higher incidence of fracture than Fuji IX GP fillings.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Dental Caries Device: Chemfil ROCK Glassionomer restoration Device: Fuji IX GP Extra Glassionomer restoration Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
In this longitudinal prospective randomized control clinical trial, posterior restorations (Class II) will be placed and evaluated for their clinical performance. The study will compare two restorative systems currently on the market in USA: both high-strength glass-ionomer (GI) restorative materials. The study restorations will be monitored for a period of up to 2 years.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 93 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description: Although material allocation was masked to evaluators, at times a difference in appearance (translucency) of the restorations at recall may have given it away.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Clinical Performance of High-Viscous Glass-Ionomer Restorative Systems In Class II Lesions
Study Start Date : November 2011
Actual Primary Completion Date : September 2014
Actual Study Completion Date : October 2014

Active Comparator: Rock AND Fuji - Paired Restorations

ChemFil Rock glassionomer restoration AND Fuji IX GP Extra glassionomer restoration.

While this is not truly a separate arm for outcome analysis, this "arm" represents those individuals who had paired restorations, one of each: 1 ChemFil Rock restoration and 1 Fuji IX GP restoration.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Survival Rate [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    • Cut-off: Restoration failure as determined by (need for) replacement due to fracture and retention losses within both arms.
    • "Clinically successful" is defined as: no need for replacement due to fracture or retention losses.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Caries Incidence Associated With Restoration [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    - "Caries free restorations" is defined as: free of caries associated with restoration.

  2. Restored Tooth Performance [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    • Cut-off: Restored tooth failure (tooth in need of repair or management) as determined by Tooth integrity (enamel/tooth fracture), Sensitivity and Vitality assessment within both arms.
    • "Clinically successful" is defined as: No need for repair or management due to sensitivity or loss of tooth integrity or vitality.
