Share Abstract:

Clinical evaluation and marginal leakage of Amalgambond Plus: Three-year results


Pages: 651-656
PMID: 9477885

Amalgambond Plus with a high-performance additive was evaluated for its ability to bond a resin composite or an amalgm alloy to deep dentin in primary teeth with nonretentive cavity preparations. The clinical performance of amalgam and resin composite mesio-occlusalodistal restorations bonded with Amalgambond Plus was evaluated at 15 months and 2 and 3 years. There was no statistically significant difference in the retention, marginal adaptation, secondary caries, and postoperative sensitivity over the times of the evlaution or between amalgam and resin composite restorations. After 3 years, most of the teeth were extracted because it was their exfoliation time, and 29 restorations limited within buccal and lingual cusps were evaluated for marginal leakage. There were no significant differences in microleakage between amalgam and resin composite restorations lined with Amalgambond Plus. Amalgambond Plus has the potential for serving successfully as a cavity liner with either amalgam or resin composite restorations.
