Abstract
A 99.5 per cent pure aluminium step-wedge served as reference for evaluating the radiopacity of 55 anterior and posterior composites. The radiopacity of all materials evaluated was compared with the radiopacity of human enamel and human dentine of equivalent sample thickness. Seventeen composites exhibited a radiopacity significantly greater than that of enamel. Some composites intended for posterior use lack the radiopacity required for posterior composite restorations.
