Share Abstract:

The effect of dentin disinfectants on shear bond strength of resin-modified glass-ionomer materials


Pages: 545-551
PMID: 9477883

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of dentinal disinfection with a 2% chlorhexidine or a 0.11% I2-KI/CuSO4 solution on the shear bond strength of three resin-modified glass-ionomer cements: Fuji II LC, Photac-Fil, and Vitremer. The occlusal surfaces of extracted human teeth were flattened to dentin. Specimens were randomly assigned to one of nine treatment groups (n = 12). For each glass-ionomer material, there was a control group and two treatment groups in which the dentin was treated with either a 2% chlorhexidine or a 0.11% I2-KI/CuSO4 solution before the dentin was treated with the recommended dentin conditioner prior to glass-ionomer bonding. Specimens were stored for 1 day in water, thermocycled, and tested in shear until failure. The chlorhexidine solution did not significantly affect the shear bond strengths of any of the cements, but the I2-KI/CuSO4 solution significantly lowered the bond strengths of Vitremer and Fuji II LC compared to the control
