Valux Plus composite (3M), Dyract and F2000 compomers and Oralloy amalgam were equally biocompatible.
Adhesion of osteoblasts to composite same as MTA.
There was no significant difference of microleakage between a dentin-bonded resin, Super-EBA, and mineral trioxide aggregate.

Seems to hold up over time much better than GI’s
* (This assures flash of resin is bonded to the root as it is first choice to not disturb the finished restoration with mechanical finishing.)
