Aim: To compare and evaluate the effect of different liners separately and in combination with lasers that is resin modified glass-ionomer cement (RMGIC), Laser+RMGIC, Biodentine, Laser+Biodentinein the treatment of deep carious lesions. Materials and methods: Forty patients with deep caries indicated for pulp capping were selected. Curative procedure including the cavity preparation with maximal removal of softened dentine using spoon excavator, slow speed handpiece with round burs was performed. Patients were divided into four groups with 10 patients in each group In group A RMGIC liner, group B laser biostimulation followed by RMGIC liner, group C biodentine liner, group D laser biostimulation followed by Biodentine liner were placed in the cavity after caries removal. Cavities were temporarily restored with IRM for 8 weeks. After 8 weeks, liners in each group were removed, and cavities were permanently restored lower half of the cavity with a layer of flowable Z350 XT composite, and then the remaining half of the cavity with P60 filled composites (3 M ESPE, USA) in all the groups. The observation period was 12 months. Results: All the patients showed a positive response to cold test and electric pulp test at 3 months, 6 months, 12 months follow-up. In group A (RMGIC) two patients and in group B (Laser+Biodentine) three patients did not return back for the follow-up. To standardize the samples, seven patients were selected from each group with a total of 28 samples included in the study (n = 7) and statistical analysis was done using analysis of variance (ANOVA) test. The mean for the total amount of dentine deposited after 12 months was highest in: Group D–(Laser+Biodenitne) 0.32 mm > Group C–(Biodentine) 0.25 mm > Group B–(Laser+RMGIC) 0.10 > Group A–(RMGIC) 0.07 mm Conclusion: Within the limitation of the present study the following conclusion was drawn: • Lasers and biodentine are good indirect pulp capping agents • Laser has an additional effect on the tertiary dentine formation. Clinical significance: Lasers with antibacterial effect penetrate into dentinal tubules and accelerate the rate of dentin bridge formation in deep carious lesions.
