This laboratory study was designed to evaluate the marginal adaptation of Class II mesio-occluso-distal (MOD) restorations at the cervical region with micro-computed tomography (micro-CT). Two groups of restorations were compared: 1) those that had been exposed to radiotherapy before restoration was performed using a universal adhesive in etch-and-rinse and self-etch modes; and 2) those that had previously been restored using a universal adhesive in etch-and-rinse and self-etch modes and had subsequently undergone radiotherapy.
