Abstract

This in vitro study evaluates the marginal sealing ability of three different flowable composite systems at enamel and dentin margins, using sealants. Class V preparations were made on the facial surfaces in enamel and dentin/cement of 60 freshly extracted teeth, which were allotted randomly into six groups of ten. The control groups (I, II, and III) showed leakage in the majority of cases. However, Groups IV and V had very limited microleakage scores (2 of 30) in comparison to Group VI (p < 0.001, Mann-Whitney Test).
