Abstract

A newly developed fluoride‐releasing composite and sealant were tested, in vitro, with regard to homogeneity, cavity adaptation, microleakage, and its effect on the extent of an artificially induced carious attack. Compared with a commercially available composite, the fluoride‐releasing material showed more desirable properties in combating caries, in uniformity of internal structure, and in microleakage.
