(Fig.2: a,b,c) The first permanent molars were restored with glass ionomer cements (GIC).
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first randomized clinical trial that evaluated the long-term clinical outcome of a desensitizing treatment with the resin-modified glass ionomer cement (Clinpro XT) compared to a conventional GIC (Vidrion R).
Popular choices for IPC were Ca[(OH).sub.2] cement (CHC) (GD: 45%; PD: 18%) and either glass ionomer cement or resin-modified glass ionomer cement (GIC/RMGIC) (GD: 45%; PD: 58%).
In this study, the temperature increases induced during thermocure lamp setting reaction of a glass carbomer (Glass Fill) and induced by visible light curing of a resin-modified glass ionomer cement (Fuji II LC) and a polyacid-modified composite resin (Dyract AP) in primary and permanent teeth were investigated (Table 1).

Since the discovery of glass ionomer cement (GIC) by Wilson and Kent [1] the family of GICs have evolved into a diverse group of dental materials that include direct restoratives, luting cements, liners, bases, atraumatic restoratives, and pit and fissure sealants [2].
