The present study was conducted to compare the clinical efficacy (marginal integrity and bulk fracture) of two alloys--Galloy (gallium based) and Aristaloy (amalgam based) in primary molars. 90 primary molars with initial caries formation were selected. 45 were restored with Galloy and 45 with Aristaloy in Class I and II preparations. They were evaluated at two-month intervals for 6 months. The results showed that Galloy performed at par with Aristaloy with regards to marginal integrity and bulk fracture. Hence Galloy can be considered as an interesting substitute in Pedodontic practice.
