75 standardized class V cavities were prepared in 38 extracted human molar teeth. 50 cavities were restored with compoglass and Dyract AP and remaining 25 cavities were filled with Fuji II cap. The teeth were submerged in acid gel (lactic acid, gelatin thymol pH 4.5) for 28 days and then resin embedded. Ground sections were examined at X 160 magnification for enamel and dentin surface lesion depths and enamel and cavity wall lesion depths and evidence of caries inhibition. The results of this study suggested that PMCR’s provide less caries inhibition than glass ionomer cement.
