Abstract:Objective: To compare the capacity of silver diamine fluoride (30%) and the bioactive giomer light-curing varnish for arresting ICDAS score 5 non-retentive caries lesions. Material and Methods: An in vitro analytical study was conducted using 36 healthy primary teeth, in which a cavity was created, divided into 3 groups: control (distilled and deionized water), giomer-based light-curing varnish -Barrier Coat, and Silver Diamine Fluoride 30% -Cariestop (SDF). The samples were analyzed for mineral loss as measur… Show more
