Abstract: Cytotoxicity of a composite resin (Restodent), suggested for use as a retrograde endodontic filling material, was evaluated in vitro and compared with silver amalgam and Cavit. Materials were evaluated freshly prepared and after 1 and 7 days setting at 37°C and 100% humidity. Results showed that Restodent was more toxic than silver amalgam. Cavit had no toxic effect. Although Restodent was reported to have better sealing properties than silver amalgam in vitro, the latter, due to its lower toxicity, is still the material of choice for retrograde root canal filling.
