Abstract

Concerns of mercury toxicity have led to the development of gallium-based restorative materials to replace dental amalgam. A new gallium-based dental restorative, Galloy, was compared with a high-copper amalgam, Permite, for anodic polarization behavior in deoxygenated Ringer's solution and by immersion testing in normal Ringer's solution at 37 °C. Corrosion products were analyzed using energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry and transmission electron diffraction. The data from both sources were consistent with the presence of α-Ga203 and SnO2 as the primary corrosion products of Galloy. Anodic polarization behavior of Galloy- and Permite-coupled specimens suggests that coupling Galloy with the more noble Permite amalgam may cause accelerated electrochemical corrosion and that Galloy is more corrosion prone than Permite.
