AbstractAim: The aim of the study was to compare the demineralization potential of different luting
cements used for bands in space maintainers.
Method: A total of 120 caries free extracted permanent molars were collected and randomly
divided into four groups, each group containing 30 samples. Stainless steel preformed
orthodontic bands were cemented on teeth in each group as follows. Control group (nonbanded
non-cemented), Conventional glass ionomer cement (GIC), Resin-modified glass
ionomer cement (RMGIC) and Adhesive resin. Later all the samples were demeneralised in
acidic solution followed by imulsion in methylene blue dye. Evaluation of created
demineralization through dye penetration was done. Statistical analysis was performed to
determine the significant differences between the groups.
