Abstract

Microleakage of Class V amalgam restorations was studied, using 3 different types of alloy and varying numbers of application of cavity varnish. Significantly less microleakage was recorded by applying 2 layers of cavity varnish and using Tytin or Silmet amalgam alloys. Permite C alloy showed no statistical difference irrespective of the number of varnish applications.
