Effect of Different Application Techniques of All-in-One Adhesives on Microtensile Bond Strength to Sound and Caries-Affected Dentin
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this study was to evaluate the microtensile bond strength of two all-in-one self-etch adhesives applied to sound and caries-affected dentin with four different application techniques. Forty extracted third molars with occlusal caries were randomly divided into four groups for G-Aenial Bond and S3 Bond: (1) according to manufacturer-s instructions; (2) with acid etching before applying adhesives; (3) doubling adhesive application time; and (4) doubling adhesive coating. Teeth were sectioned to obtain 1-mm-+/- 0.2-mm-thick dentin sticks and subjected to a tensile force. For G-Aenial Bond, doubling the time and application of two consecutive coats produced significantly higher strength than that obtained by following manufacturers- instructions and acid etching application to sound dentin. Prior acid etching and application of two consecutive coats to caries-affected dentin generated significantly higher bond strength than that using other techniques. For S3 Bond, there was no significant difference between application techniques in caries-affected dentin. For sound dentin, double-time application of S3 Bond produced significantly higher strength than application according to the manufacturers- instructions. Compared to the application according to manufacturer-s instructions, acid etching before applying adhesives, doubling application time, and doubling the coating had a positive effect on bond strength to caries-affected dentin for all-in-one adhesives.
