This research reviews relevant articles related to microleakage from 1966 to the present. The review discusses what the sensation of microleakage is clinically; how dentin permeability is related to microleakage; how the quality of dentin affects permeability and microleakage; what the effects of bacterial infiltration from microleakage can be, as well as the body's defenses against bacterial infiltration within the tooth complex; how caries and microleakage are related; and how various materials and procedures can be used to limit microleakage. Part Two reviews the use of materials, technique, and procedures to limit microleakage, and specifically how the use of various dentin and enamel bonding materials can be used to limit microleakage.
