The present study was carried out to compare the marginal microleakage of some newer materials viz. a flowable composite, an injectable resin modified glass-ionomer and a compomer in Class I cavities of 30 non carious primary molars. After 0.5% basic fuchsin dye penetration and sectioning, the teeth were studied under stereomicroscope. The results obtained revealed that flowable composite showed significantly lower microleakage (p<0.05) as compared to injectable resin-modified glass ionomer and compomer. However, no significant difference was observed when injectable resin modified glass-ionomer cement was compared to compomer. This concludes that flowable composite materials adhere better to the primary teeth than resin modified glass ionomer and compomer.
