Carious lesions associated with the margins of tooth restorations have previously been defined as recurrent or secondary caries. In recent years it has been suggested that placing a filling does not cure caries and that the "recurrence" of lesions on restoration margins results from neglecting to treat caries as disease before placing a restoration. The objectives of this comparison are to determine absence of carious lesions in single and multiple-surface GIC versus amalgam restorations in: (a) permanent teeth and (b) primary teeth.
