AIM: The aim of the study is to compare and evaluate the retention and antibacterial efficacy of Compomer and Glass Hybrid Bulk Fill restorative material as a conservative adhesive restoration in children with mixed dentition. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty children of age 6–12 years with mixed dentition were selected and divided into Group I – Compomer and Group II – Glass Hybrid Bulk Fill. After thorough oral prophylaxis and baseline collection of saliva, restorative treatment was carried out using the two materials. Retention of the material and salivary Streptococcus mutans count (CFU/ml of saliva) was estimated at 1 month and 3 months after restorative procedure. RESULTS: The retention rate with Glass Hybrid Bulk Fill group and Compomer group was 100%. Statistical significant reduction in salivary S. mutans colony count was seen with both the groups at both different time intervals. Maximum reduction was noted in Glass Hybrid Bulk Fill group at 3-month intervals, and gradual reduction was seen with Compomer group. CONCLUSION: Both the materials, Glass Hybrid Bulk Fill restorative material and Compomer, showed good retention. Moreover, both the materials have shown good antimicrobial activity after 3-month follow-up.
