Abstract: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the radiodensity of indirect restorative systems and to determine its influence on detection of resin cement overhangs. Sixty sound molars with similar dimensions were selected, and MOD inlay preparations were made in a standardized fashion with 6 degrees taper of the walls. Restorations were made with a porcelain, Duceram LFC, and with three indirect composites, Solidex, Artglass, and Targis. Digital radiographic images were taken before and after cementation of the inlays (Digora system) and were analyzed on two regions, the cervical and the isthmus floor. Digital radiodensity measurements were performed on standardized points symmetrically distributed over each restoration and tooth structure. Cement overhangs were detected through visual analysis by three evaluators. Data were statistically analyzed utilizing ANOVA following Tukey's test (p < 0.05), showing that Solidex presented lower radiodensity than Duceram LFC, and both Artglass and Targis presented similar higher levels of radiodensity than the other groups. Radiodensity of cervical regions was always greater than for isthmus floor regions. Detection of the resin cement overhangs is easier observed on Solidex and Duceram LFC. Radiodensity is highly influenced by restorative material type and tooth regions. The detection of radiopaque resin cement overhangs is influenced by radiodensity of restorative materials.
