A laboratory study was conducted to determine effects of 1.23% APF gel on three composite resins. All composite resins immersed in APF gel lost significantly more weight than did their controls with significantly different weight losses among the APF-treated composites. Surfaces of all resins exposed to APF gel, as viewed in SEM's, exhibited degradation of filler particles.
