Abstract

Four types of fluoridated amalgam were assessed in vitro in terms of fluoride release, corrosion behaviour and compressive strength, and compared with amalgams prepared from the corresponding non‐fluoridated alloys. Although corrosion susceptibility was found to be increased, steady release of the fluoride ion was demonstrated over a 16‐week period, indicating that fluoridated amalgams might be prophylactically employed in clinical dentistry as a means of overcoming the problem of secondary caries associated with amalgam restorations.
