In vivo and in vitro analysis of a bonding agent
Goracci / Bazzucchi / Mori / de Martinis
Recently many researchers have become interested in the adhesion of composite resin to the dentinal surface. Because it is easier to obtain good composite resin adhesion when a surface is free from smear plug, several chemical agents (acids or linking agents) have been suggested for surface preparation. Nevertheless, the pretreatment of dentin leads to an increase of pulpal outflow, which can interfere with the bonding agent's adhesion. Thus, new-generation deninal bonding agents appeared on the market. They use a pool of highly absorbent primers to facilitate the scattering of the agent in the dentin substratum under humid conditions. The present study shows the results, obtained with the help of scanning electron microscopy, of resinous penetration into the tubular structures of dentin using a latest-generation bonding system. The in vivo and in vitro tests showed a deep scattering of intermediate fluid resin into tubules, even in the presence of physiologic outlfow of dentinal flui
