Amalgam is probably the most widely used restorative material in dentistry. While it has proved to be a reliable and economic material, concerns about mercury toxicity continue to be raised. In an attempt to overcome the controversy, newer mercury free materials like gallium restorative alloys are gaining attention for clinical trials. Data available from invitro studies have demonstrated gallium alloy to have acceptable mechanical properties for posterior restorations. This paper will describe the handling properties, clinical application and limitations of its use.
