The article discusses an in vitro study which examines the surface antibacterial properties of glass ionomer cements (GIC) used in atraumatic restorative treatment (ART). Streptococcus mutans, Actinomyces viscosus and Enterococcus faecalis were the test microorganisms. The study found that conventional GIC used in ART showed antibacterial surface properties against cariogenic bacteria for at least one week.
