ABSTRACT To evaluate the clinical performance of a self-etching adhesive in Class V non-carious lesions with and without acid etching procedures.
A total of 125 Class V non-carious cervical lesions (NCCL) with incisal or occlusal margins in enamel and gingival margins in dentin/cementum were selected and restored with Clearfil SE Bond self-etch adhesive and Clearfil APX resin composite. All cavities were restored using two techniques; after etching the whole cavity for 20 seconds and without acid etching (control). The restorations were evaluated at baseline, 1- and 2-year using modified USPHS criteria.
No loss of restorations was recorded after 1 and 2 years for the two restorative techniques. There was no significant difference between the baseline and 2-year results for any of the tested technique. However, restorations made after acid etching showed less marginal discoloration at the enamel margins.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the survival over five years of Class V restorations placed by UK general practitioners, and to identify factors associated with increased longevity. Prospective longitudinal cohort multi-centre study. UK general dental practices. Ten general dental practitioners each placed 100 Class V restorations of varying sizes, using a range of materials and recorded selected clinical information at placement and recall visits. After five years the data were analysed using the Kaplan-Meier method, log-rank tests and Cox regressions models to identify significant associations between the time to restoration failure and different clinical factors. After five years 275/989 restorations had failed (27.8%), with 116 (11.7%) lost to follow-up. Cox regression analysis identified that, in combination, the practitioner, patient age, cavity size, moisture contamination and cavity preparation were found to influence the survival of the restorations. At least 60.5% of the restorations survived for five years. The time to failure of Class V restorations placed by this group of dentists was reduced in association with the individual practitioner, smaller cavities, glass ionomer restorations, cavities which had not been prepared with a bur, moisture contamination, increasing patient age, cavities confined to dentine and non-carious cavities.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to investigate the bonding of dental adhesives to the dentinoenamel junction (DEJ) zone. Bonding of four adhesives [two etch-and-rinse adhesives (ERAs) and two self-etching adhesives (SEAs)] to enamel, dentin, and the DEJ zone was evaluated using a micro-shear test. Based on the measured bond strengths of dentin/enamel and on the area percentages of dentin in the DEJ zone, predicted bond strengths for the DEJ zone were calculated and compared with those measured. The DEJ zone was analyzed, using scanning electron microscopy, after conditioning, resin infiltration, and debonding. Regardless of the adhesive, bond strengths were significantly influenced by substrates, exhibiting the following order of bond strength (strongest to weakest): dentin >DEJ zone > enamel. The predicted values of the DEJ zone for the ERA groups were significantly higher than the measured values. Analysis of the ERA specimens using scanning electron microscopy showed distinct etching textures of enamel and dentin, which outlined the DEJ and increased the adhesive thickness at the enamel side of the DEJ. Those characteristics could not be detected in the SEA groups. The DEJ zone displayed bond properties that were stronger than enamel but weaker than dentin and therefore may be considered as transitional bond properties. Enamel/dentin within the DEJ zone might bond more weakly to ERAs than its counterpart of the bulk tissue. The presence of the DEJ in the bond area might compromise the bonding efficiency of ERAs.

    ABSTRACT: Background:  The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical performance of G-Bond all-in-one adhesive with Gradia Direct resin composite placed in non-carious cervical lesions (NCCLs) over a five-year period. Methods:  Forty-seven restorations were placed in NCCLs in 10 subjects (age 45-75 years) after written informed consent was obtained. Institutional ethical approval for the trial was obtained before recruitment. Restorations were placed according to the manufacturer's instructions and using 50% phosphoric acid to etch uncut enamel margins. Patients were recalled annually for five years and restorations reviewed for presence and marginal staining. Photographic records were obtained prior to restoration, immediately after placement and at each recall. Results:  At five years, 6 of the original 10 subjects were available for recall, meaning 27 restoration sites could be evaluated. All restorations remained intact apart for one partial failure at four years. This resulted in a cumulative retention rate of 97.5% of restorations at five years. Marginal staining occurred around seven restorations during the study. Staining tended to be isolated to a few patients. Conclusions:  It was concluded that G-Bond with Gradia Direct resin composite showed excellent results over the five years of the study. This material combination seems very suitable for the restoration of NCCLs.
