The Bond Strength of Panavia Ex to Air-Abraded Amalgam


PMID: 1810319

The tensile bond strengths of a resin cement, Panavia Ex, to a spherical and an admixed amalgam were measured after surface treatment with different aluminum oxide abrasive spray procedures. The type of amalgam and the brand of aluminum oxide affected the bond strength of the resin to amalgam alloy. When the spherical alloy was air abraded using 60-microns aluminum oxide prior to cementation of a Rexillium rod using Panavia, the bond strength was not significantly different from the previously reported bond strengths of Panavia to etched enamel. Significantly lower bond strengths were obtained between Panavia and the admixed amalgam alloy. These results suggest that it may be possible to place a resin-bonded prosthesis on an abutment tooth that has been restored using a spherical amalgam alloy.
