Biocompatibility of Optibond and XR-Bond Adhesive Systems in Nonhuman Primate Teeth

Tarim/Hafez/Suzuki/Suzuki/Cox


PMID: 9558560
DOI: 10.11607/prd.00.0254

This study evaluated the histologic responses of two different adhesive systems on the teeth of seven healthy adult monkeys. Class V cavities in 128 teeth were observed at 7, 21 to 27, and 90 to 97 days. Statistical data showed no significant differences in pulp inflammation between the Optibond (Kerr), XR-Bond (Kerr), and IRM (Caulk) groups in pulps at the three time intervals. Some odon toblastic disruption and inflammation was seen in pulps restored with XR-Primer at the three time intervals. Pulp healing was similar in teeth treated with both direct-capped Optimbond and calcium hydroxide, and there was no significant increase in pulpal inflammation with time. No abscesses or necrotic pulps were seen in any teeth. Optibond and XR-Bond adhesive systems are biologically acceptable in nonhuman primate pulp tissue.
