Shabir Ahmad Bhat, Mushtaq Mohammad Bhat, Omer Misgar

Background: Achieving a micromechanical and biomechanical bond between the restoration and tooth is considered effective and a standard procedure in clinical practice. The present study was conducted to assess the microleakage of different restorative materials. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 30 mandibular premolars extracted for orthodontic purposes were selected. Lass I cavity was prepared in selected samples. Teeth were divided into 3 groups of 10 each. Group I teeth were restored with GC Fuji II LC, group II with Ketac Molar Easy Mix and group III with Filtek Z350. In all teeth, dye penetration was assessed. Results: The mean microleakage in group I was 0.51, in group II was 2.72 and in group III was 0.08. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Conclusion: Microleakage was maximum in group II (Ketac Molar Easy Mix) followed by group I (GC Fuji II LC) and group III (Filtek Z350).
Key words: Dye, Microleakage, Restorative.
