S Mutans Degrade Resin-Based Restorative Materials to Varying Levels


Background: Biodegradation of resin-based restorative materials may occur as a result of several factors, including esterase activity of Streptococcus mutans . Objective: To evaluate the biodegradation by S mutans of a conventional resin-based composite (CC), Giomer, and a resin-modified glass ionomer cement (RMGIC). Design: In vitro study. Methods: Class I cavities were prepared in extracted premolars, and the teeth were assigned to the following groups according to the type of re more...
