Hybrid Layer as a Dentin‐Bonding Mechanism
ABSTRACT A number of mechanisms (both mechanical and chemical) have been proposed as the cause of dentin adhesion. Extensive research in Japan during the past 10 years has shown that strong, long-lived bonds between resin and living dentin will form when a monomer such as 4-META, which contains both hydrophilic and hydrophobic chemical groups, penetrates the tissue and polymerizes in situ. This resin-impregnation creates a transitional “hybrid” layer, that is neither resin nor tooth, but a hybrid of the two. The thin layer of resin-reinforced dentin locks the two dissimilar substances together on a molecular level, sealing the surface against leakage and imparting a high degree of acid resistance.

- "This process allows for the primer (which contains hydrophilic acrylic monomers that can re-wet dentin to prevent collagen collapse) to be initially applied and then followed by the application of the adhesive resin. This allows the more hydrophobic adhesive to infiltrate into the created micro-pores, producing a matrix that mechanically interlocks the resin to the dentin or enamel, and produces what has become known as the hybrid layer . In the etch and rinse technique, the primer and adhesive can be combined into a single bottle. "
ABSTRACT: To survey the recent literature from the late 1980s to recent years in order to assess the relationship between resin degradation, catalyzed by biological factors, and clinical failure outcomes such as marginal breakdown. The literature shows that degradation occurs in many manufacturers' products despite varied vinyl acrylate compositions. The authors examine salivary enzyme activity and their ability to degrade the polymeric matrix of resin composites and adhesives, as well as oral microorganisms that can promote demineralization of the tooth surface at the marginal interface. A survey of recent research relating matrix metalloproteinase (MMPs) to the degradation of the exposed collagen at the dentin adhesive interface is also discussed in the context of marginal breakdown. The literature provides strong support that together, the above factors can breakdown the marginal interface and limit the longevity of resin composite restorations. The authors have found that the field's current understanding of resin biodegradation in the oral cavity is just beginning to grasp the role of bacteria and enzymes in the failure of resin-based restorations. Knowledge of these biodegradation processes is pertinent to areas where innovative strategies in the chemistry of restorative materials are anticipated to enhance the longevity of resin composites.Dental materials: official publication of the Academy of Dental Materials 09/2013; 30(1).

- "Satisfactory bonding to enamel can be achieved using the acid-etching technique , but dentine bonding is more difficult to achieve due to the wet tubular structure, permeability properties, and organic composition of dentinal substrate . Recently there has been increasing interest in the incorporation of fillers into dentine adhesive systems, but the importance of filler particles is somewhat controversial  . These fillers may include from conventional glass or silica fillers to nanometer-sized aerosil silica . "
ABSTRACT: In this laboratory study shear bond strengths of three filled and one unfilled adhesive systems to enamel and dentine were compared. Forty-eight extracted intact noncarious human mandibular molars were randomly assigned to two groups of 24 one for bonding to enamel and the other for bonding to dentine. Buccal and lingual surfaces of each tooth were randomly assigned for application of each one of filled (Prime & Bond NT (PBNT), Optibond Solo Plus (OBSP), and Clearfil SE Bond (CSEB)) and unfilled (Single Bond (SB)) adhesive systems ( n = 12 ). A universal resin composite was placed into the translucent plastic cylinders (3 mm in diameter and 2 mm in length) and seated against the enamel and dentine surfaces and polymerized for 40 seconds. Shear bond strength was determined using a universal testing machine, and the results were statistically analyzed using two-way ANOVA, one-way ANOVA, t -test, and Tukey HSD post hoc test with a 5% level of significance.There were no statistically significant differences in bond strength between the adhesive systems in enamel, but CSEB and SB exhibited significantly higher and lower bond strength to dentine, respectively, than the other tested adhesive systems while there were no statistically significant differences between PBNT and OBSP.International Journal of Dentistry 11/2012; 2012(2):858459.

- "Sodium hypochlorite was used to remove the demineralized collagen to enable a clear visualization of the hybrid layer. Therefore, by definition, the hybrid layer is characterized as a layer resisting against acid challenge . As for the mechanical approach, argon-ion beam etching has been used to clearly reveal the hybrid layer at the resin— dentin interface . "
ABSTRACT: Dentin bonding systems have been dramatically simplified and improved during the recent decades. Monomer penetration into dentin and its polymerization in situ creates a hybrid layer, which is essential to obtain good bonding to dentin. Moreover, the presence of an acid–base resistant zone below the hybrid layer has been documented with self-etching adhesive systems in an artificial secondary caries attack. When ultrastructure of the acid–base resistant zone is assessed by SEM and TEM observations, formation of the acid–base resistant zone is considered to be due to the monomer penetration potential and fluoride release in the adhesive systems. Natural dentin has a limited potential to resist an acid attack of secondary caries; however, the acid–base resistant zone does not purely consist of dentin in morphology, it is rather a combination of dentin and the adjacent hybrid layer. Therefore, the reinforced dentin has been called “Super Dentin” bearing the ability to prevent primary and secondary caries. Prospectively, the great potential of adhesive technology in creation of the “Super Dentin” would lead to the development of new materials for mechanical, chemical and biological protection of the dental structures.Japanese Dental Science Review 02/2011; 47(1):31-42.
