Aim: The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare postcementation sensitivity under Class II composite inlay with three different luting cements. Materials and Methods: A comparative prospective study was carried out in 45 patients age ranged from 18 to 28 years for 2 years, who fulfilled the criteria. Clinically and radiographically, presence of mild initial dental caries on proximal surface of maxillary and mandibular first molar. Tooth preparation for composite inlay was performed and composite inlay restorations were made by indirect technique. Three different luting cements were used for cementation of composite inlay. Cold water test, compressed air test, and biting pressure test were used to measure the tooth sensitivity in this study. Results: As per the findings of this study, there was no significant difference between all the three groups immediately after cementation. We noted a significant difference between Group I and Group III and Group I and Group II and Group II and Group III after 1 and 6 months. Conclusions: Based on the results of this study, we concluded that restorations cemented with self-adhesive resin cements showed least postoperative sensitivity followed by Resin-modified glass ionomer cement (GIC) and GIC has the highest sensitivity at all intervals of time evaluated using different tests.
