OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical retention of a new resin-modified glass ionomer cement based adhesive combined with a hybrid resin composite or a poly-acid modified resin composite in non-carious cervical lesions during a 6-year period. METHODS: The resin-modified glass ionomer adhesive (Fuji Bond LC), was placed in 73 cervical lesions, 36 with a universal hybrid resin composite (Tetric Ceram) and 37 with a poly-acid modified resin composite (Hytac). Fifty-one in lesions with sclerotic dentin and 22 in non-sclerotic ones. Of the sclerotic lesions 38 were slightly roughened with a diamond bur before conditioning. The restorations were evaluated with slightly modified USPHS criteria every six months during a 6-year period. RESULTS: All except six restorations were evaluated during the 6 years. Twelve (17.9%) were lost, four Tetric Ceram (11.8%) and eight Hytac (24.2%) (p<0.05). Four were found in non-sclerotic lesions (20.0%) and eight in sclerotic lesions (17.0%). The differences between the sclerotic and non-sclerotic and the roughened and non-roughened lesions were not significant. CONCLUSIONS: The resin-modified glass adhesive showed a superior clinical retention combined with the resin composite material, with an annual failure rate of 2%.
