This randomized clinical trial was carried out to compare post cementation sensitivity in vital abutments of metal-ceramic fixed partial dentures using glass ionomer luting cement and resin based luting cement.
The p values for the chi square test were insignificant P- values (Pgreatre than 0.05) at all appointments in abutments of fixed partial denture with either resin based or glass ionomer luting cement.

To decrease the postoperative sensitivity, vari- ous methods have been used including application of dentine bonding agents, varnishes, laser and cavity desensitisers.1 With the application of dentine bonding agents, an impervious layer was formed to occlude open dentinal tubules which in turn reduced hypersen- sitivity.1 Microleakage was also observed to be re- duced in dentine with this layer.2 This layer might also influence the shear bond strength of the restora- tion luted with resin luting cement in the subsequent visit.3
This was done to ensure a controlled film thickness of the luting cements to all the specimens.
Both cements were mixed per manufacturer's directives to achieve excellent properties while using these as luting material.
