Comparative analysis of microleakage with commonly used restorative materials for primary teeth
Asiya Basheer, Shipra Jaidka

Background: Restorative dentistry, in its infancy was dominated by the simple principle of “extension for prevention” laid down by G.V. Black and which was partially dictated by the restorative materials available at that time. Microleakage is observed to be one of the most frequently encountered problems with respect to the posterior resin restorations. Achieving a micromechanical and biomechanical bond between the tooth-restoration interface is marked as a standard procedure for an ideal restorative technique. Aim of the study: To compare the microleakage with three commonly used materials for restoration of primary molars. Materials and methods: The study was conducted in the Department of Pedodontics in Divya Jyoti College Of Dental Sciences And Research, Modinagar. For the study, we collected 60 extracted non carious deciduous molar teeth. The collected teeth were cleaned using hand instruments and were stored in normal saline solution at room temperature. The teeth were grouped into three groups, Group A, Group B, and Group C. The teeth in group A were restored with colored compomer, in group B were restored with Giomer, and in group C were restored with resin modified glass ionomer cement. Then, restored teeth were prepared for dye exposure to check the marginal leakage of restorations. Results: We observed that the highest frequency of score zero was seen in group A, followed by group B, and then group C. Score three was seen with one sample each of group B and group C. Conclusion:  From the results of present study, this can be concluded that restoration of deciduous molars with colored compomer would be more long lasting because of minimal marginal leakage seen with the material.
Key words: Resin, Primary molars, Restoration, Microleakage.
