Novel composite materials based on polymer matrix with inorganic filler were characterized to evaluate their potential application in dentistry. Previously reported filler and composites were investigated in correlation with their behavior in artificial saliva. The saliva study involved pH and microhardness determinations, ions release and saliva sorption during soaking in saliva for 30 days. The conclusion assessed was that the investigated composite materials showed a good behavior, comparable with commercially employed dental composites.
