Background.
This narrative review addresses dental restorative materials with sustained anti-bacterial action, especially those containing quaternary ammonium compounds. Secondary caries occurs around restorations, causing further loss of mineral and breakdown of the restoration. Lesions adjacent to restorations account for more than 40% of needed restorations. Restorative materials with antibacterial properties will potentially solve this problem.

Keywords.
Caries prevention; antibacterial restorative materials; secondary caries; quaternary ammonium compounds.
