 # All the following cements  possess anticariogenic properties, EXCEPT:

B. Glass ionomer
C. Silicophosphate
D. Zinc oxide eugenol

The correct answer is D. Zinc oxide eugenol.

Anticariogenic property of cements makes the enamel (fluorapatite) resistant to acid mediated decalcification. Silica-phosphate has the highest fluoride content followed by silicate and GIC. Polycarboxylate has least fluoride content. They release fluoride throughout the life of restoration but rate of release decreases over time.
