  • The aim of this work was to study the corrosion of gallium alloys in vivo. Three gallium alloys were tested: GF alloy, Galloy and an experimental GaIn alloy. An amalgam was applied as a control. After ageing for a minimum of two weeks, one disc of each of these alloys was mounted with the polished side up in the buccal surfaces of 17 acrylic dentures. Eight sets of the specimens were retrieved after exposure to the oral cavity for 2–4 months, and another seven were retrieved after 6–9 months… CONTINUE READING
