microleakage

microleakage

 [mi″kro-lēk´aj]
leakage of minute amounts of fluids, debris, and microorganisms through the microscopic space between a dental restoration or its cement and the adjacent surface of the cavity preparation; it may progress through the dentin into the pulp.

microleakage

[mī′krō·lē′kij]
Etymology: Gk, mikros + ONorse leka, to drip
leakage of minute amounts of salivary fluids, debris, and microorganisms through the microscopic space between a dental restoration or its cement and the adjacent surface of the cavity preparation. It may form a carious lesion, progress through the dentin into the pulp, resulting ultimately in the failure of the restoration and the loss of the tooth.

mi·cro·leak·age

(mīkrō-lēkăj)
Passage of microorganisms and saliva-borne constituents through the interstices between the sides of a cavity preparation and a restoration, due to incomplete sealing of the interface.

microleakage,

n the seepage of fluids, debris, and microorganisms along the interface between a restoration and the walls of a cavity preparation.
