Abstract

Introduction The dietary habits of children expose the oral cavity to challenging environments. A durable interface between the restorative material and tooth surface is essential to ensure marginal integrity thereby contributing to the longevity of restoration.

Objectives The objective of this study was to compare the micro-leakage of two newer glass ionomer cements  (SDI Riva Self Cure GIC and GC Fuji IX GP EXTRA) in primary molars immersed in sugarcane juice, chocolate milk and mango drink.

Methods The study included 60 extracted non carious upper and lower primary molars. The buccal and lingual surfaces were restored with SDI Riva Self Cure GIC and GC Fuji IX GP EXTRA respectively. The sample was divided into three groups (chocolate milk, mango drink, sugarcane juice). Each group (n=18) was further subdivided into three subgroups based on the immersion regime. Six teeth were kept as control. The teeth were immersed in Rhodamine B dye. Following this, micro-leakage was determined under 40 x stereomicroscope.

Results Both the materials showed microleakage when immersed in the three beverages. When specimen under each group were compared, the microleakage score increased with an increase in immersion frequency. This was not statistically significant. The microleakage values for both the materials immersed in the three beverages were not significant.

Conclusion Both the materials used in this study can be conveniently used in restoration of primary molars.
