The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the surface and resin-dentine interface characteristics of permanent tooth dentine cut with diamond or carbide burs and treated with phosphoric acid (PA) or an acidic conditioner. Labial surfaces of permanent incisors were prepared into dentine with high-speed carbide or diamond burs and divided into two halves. Phosphoric acid 36% was applied on one half and non-rinse conditioner (NRC) was applied on the other half. Ten randomly selected scanning electron microscopy (SEM) fields from each specimen (n = 15) were evaluated. Occlusal surfaces of third molars were divided in two halves for evaluation of the resin-dentine interface. The halves were randomly assigned to one of each conditioner and restored with Prime & Bond NT/Spectrum. Ten specimens were analysed by SEM to evaluate hybrid layer formation and interfacial seal. We observed that surfaces prepared with carbide bur presented less residual smear plugs (P < 0.05) than surfaces prepared with diamond burs. Surfaces conditioned with NRC, which is a smear layer modifier, presented more residual smear plugs than surfaces conditioned with PA (P < 0.05). Treatment with PA resulted in more sealed interfaces than specimens treated with NRC. Within the limitations of this study the results showed that carbide burs leave a surface that is more conducive to bonding than diamond burs.

    • "Its thickness can generally be classified in descending order according to the following ranking: median-grit diamond bur > fine-grit diamond bur > tungsten carbide bur > #600-grit SiC paper.[8] [26] [27] In addition, the smear layer produced by the diamond burs seems to be more porous than that produced by abrasive paper or carbide bur.[8] [26] [27] Interestingly, despite all of these variations, the bond strength of most SLCs evaluated in this study was not significantly influenced.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the bond strength and the interaction morphology of self-adhesive resin luting cements (SLCs) to dentin prepared with different methods. Four SLCs were used: RelyX U100®, RelyX U200®, Clearfil SA Luting®, and SmartCem2®. A flat dentin surface of 40 human molars was exposed and each tooth was sectioned in four tooth-quarters, which were distributed into four groups according to the SLC used to cement indirect resin composite restorations. The tooth-quarters of each group were then distributed in four subgroups according to the method used for dentin preparation: flat-ended cylindrical fine-grit diamond, flat-ended cylindrical median-grit diamond, flat-ended cylindrical plain-cut tungsten carbide, or abraded with #600-grit SiC paper (control). The restored toothquarters were sectioned to obtain beams (0.8 mm2) and submitted to the microtensile bond strength test (n = 10). The results were analyzed using two-way ANOVA/Tukey (α = 0.05). Forty-four additional teeth were used for micromorphological investigation of the SLC/dentin interface and of the topographic aspect of the dentin surfaces after application of the SLCs. Only the bond strength of RelyX U200 was significantly influenced by the surface preparation. No interference was identified on the micromorphological aspect of the bonding interfaces. The topographic investigation of the dentinal surfaces showed that the SLCs were not able to effectively remove the smear layer and etch the underlying dentin, irrespective of the preparation method. So, the interference of the dentin preparation on the bond strength of SLCs is material dependent, but don’t influence the micromorphologic aspect of the interaction zone.

    • "Results of the present study differed from the conclusions obtained by some previous studies using carbide burs or lasers for cavity cutting. Various authors have concluded that a diamond stone produce more smear layer on the dentinal surfaces than the carbide burs and produces a surface, which is less conducive for bonding with self etching primers.[2627] "

    ABSTRACT: This study evaluated the effect of 2% chlorhexidine cavity disinfectant on microleakage in class II cavities restored with light cured composites using a single bottle adhesive in an in vitro model. Proximal box cavities were prepared on mesial and distal surfaces of 40 non carious mandibular third molars, resulting in total of 80 cavities. Forty cavities on were rinsed with normal saline and 40 cavities were rinsed with 2% chlorhexidine cavity disinfectant. All cavities were restored with a single bottle adhesive and nano hybrid composite resin. Microleakage was evaluated at the gingival margin using methylene blue dye penetration method. Chlorhexidine cavity disinfectants produced significantly higher microleakage while restoring the cavities using a self-etching single bottle adhesive.

    ABSTRACT: This study aimed to show the effect of dentin conditioner on the bond strength of glass ionomer cement to Er,Cr:YSGG-laser-irradiated dentin compared to conventional bur-prepared dentin. Glass ionomer cement bonds to tooth structure via direct chemical bonding without using any adhesive system. To improve the adhesion of this material, pretreating the dentin surface with a conditioner is recommended. Recently, lasers for tooth drilling have been used for cavity preparation, especially the Er,Cr:YSGG laser. However, there is a lack of research on the bond strength of glass ionomer cement to conditioned Er,Cr:YSGG-laser-irradiated dentin. Extracted human teeth were divided into eight experimental groups and prepared by using either Er,Cr:YSGG laser or a conventional bur. In half of these two groups, the relevant conditioner was applied on the dentin before building up with glass-ionomer cement. After 24 h, all teeth were sectioned, and the microtensile bond strength was determined. The mode of failure was observed, and the fractured surfaces were examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The use of conditioner was found to significantly affect bond strength for laser-prepared samples (analysis of variance [ANOVA], p < 0.05). Failure analysis showed no adhesive failures in the laser-prepared teeth, and this suggests an effective bond between glass ionomer cement and Er,Cr:YSGG laser-cut dentin. To obtain the maximum retention of a glass ionomer restoration to Er,Cr:YSGG laser-irradiated dentin, the results of this study confirm that pretreatment of the laser-prepared dentin with dentin conditioner is advantageous.
