Share Abstract:

Shear bond strength and scanning electron microscopic observation of six current dentinal adhesives


Pages: 359-368
PMID: 7938423

This paper presents shear bond strength data and scanning electron photo micrographs of six dentinal adhesives: All-Bond 2, etched and unetched; Syntac; Prisma Universal Bond 3; Scotchbond Multi-Purpose; Tenure Solution; and Adhesive By Choice. The methods used in tooth treatment and scanning electron microscopic observation were identical to those used in previous studies. This permitted comparisons among a total of 13 dentinal adhesives (seven from prevous studies), all treated under the same experimental conditions and all currently available to the practitioner. Scanning electron micrographs showed the types of failures that occurred when the composite resin was fractured from the dentin. Most of the fractures were adhesive, with the exception of Scotchbond Multi-Purpose, whic h had many cohesive failures in the dentin or the composite resin. There was no significant difference among any of the shear bond strength values with the exception of Scotchbond Multi-Purpose, which was significantly stronger than the other five adhesives studied.
