The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate the effect of two fibers (polyethylene or glass) and a flowable resin liner on microleakage in Class II adhesive restorations. Class II adhesive cavities were prepared on mesial and distal surfaces of 40 extracted sound human molars. The cavity margins were below or above the CEJ. The teeth were randomly divided into four groups according to the restoration technique: group 1: restored with a resin composite (AP-X, Kuraray) in bulk after SE Bond (Kuraray) treatment; group 2: flowable resin liner (Protect Liner F, Kuraray) was used before composite restoration; in group 3, a polyethylene fiber (Ribbond) and in group 4, a glass fiber (everStick NET, StickTech) was placed into the bed of flowable resin before composite restoration. Samples were finished, stored in distilled water for 7 days at room temperature, and then thermocycled for 300 cycles between 5 degrees C and 55 degrees C. After sealing the apices, the teeth were varnished within 1 mm of the margins and placed in 0.5% basic fuchsin dye for 24 h at 37 degrees C. After rinsing, the teeth were sectioned longitudinally through the restorations and microleakage was evaluated with a stereomicroscope. Marginal penetration was scored on a 0 to 4 scale, and the data were statistically analyzed using Kruskal-Wallis and the Mann-Whitney U-test. Flowable resin, everStick NET, and Ribbond THM used in combination with flowable resin significantly reduced leakage at occlusal margins in cavities with enamel margins (p < 0.05). When the leakage values on cervical dentin margins were evaluated, there was no statistically significant difference among the tested groups (p > 0.05). Use of flowable composite alone or in combination with polyethylene or glass fibers reduces occlusal leakage in Class II adhesive cavities with enamel margins.
    • "In 1999, Vallittu et al. [64] published a study on the flexural properties of acrylic resin polymers reinforced with unidirectional and woven glass fibers, reporting that the strain at the fracture of the material could be modified.) [65, 66] evaluated fiber-reinforced composite resin restorations and concluded that using polyethylene fiber under composite restorations in root-filled teeth with MOD preparations significantly increases fracture strength, reduces leakage in class 2 cavities [67], and strengthens microtensile bonding to dentin [68]. Furthermore, fiber reinforcement between the restorative resin and dentin changes the fracture line, causes repairable fractures, saving the remaining tooth structure [65, 66, 68], and increases the restorability of methacrylate-based composite resin-restored teeth after failure [69].

    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The restoration of endodontically treated teeth remains a challenge. The success of the final restoration depends mostly on the structure of the remaining tooth. Although the materials and procedures available today result in successful restoration of root-filled teeth via direct (in situ) techniques, one should first consider the amount of the coronal tooth structure remaining as well as the functional requirements. Restoration using direct composite resin is a good treatment option, but polymerization shrinkage is one of the major limitations of this material. The application of various base materials under the composite resin is an effective method. Covering the cusps with the restorative material is another option to save the remaining tooth structure; however, some materials may be unsuitable in stress-bearing areas. Materials applied to the orifice of a root canal also have a major effect on tooth biomechanics. This article reviews the direct restoration of endodontically treated teeth and discusses the current materials and techniques used for this purpose.

    • "An elastic liner between the tooth structure and composite resin may compensate for contraction stresses and prevent gap formation [17]. The performance of dentin adhesives or a low-viscosity, low-modulus intermediate resin as an elastic barrier between the dentin adhesive and resin-based restorative material has been investigated previously [18] [19].

    • "Another approach to improve marginal integrity and consequent clinical problems is the use of lining materials with low viscosity such as glass ionomers or some types of bonding agents1516. We used one layer of composite at the base of restorations in gingival floor which could reduce the polymerization shrinkage, occurring in bulk technique restorations at the base of box on gingival floor [17]. In the current study; two adhesive systems (twostep etch-and-rinse and one mild self-etching primer) were used to evaluate the effect of type of bonding agent on marginal microleakage. "
    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Statement of Problem: Microleakage is one of the most frequent problems associated with resin composites, especially at the gingival margin of posterior restorations. Insertion of fibers in composite restorations can reduce the total amount of composite and help to decrease the shrinkage. Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of polyethylene fiber inserts on gingival microleakage of class II composite restorations using two different adhesive systems. Materials and Method: In this experimental study, class II cavities were prepared on 60 premolars. The gingival floor was located 1.0 mm below the CEJ. Dimension of each cavity were 3 mm buccolingually and 1.5 mm in axial depth. The specimens were divided into 4 groups according to the adhesive type and fiber insert (n=4). Single bond and Clearfill SE bond and Filtek p60 were used to restore the cavities. In groups without fiber inserts composite was adapted onto cavities using layering technique. For cavities with fiber inserts, 3 mm piece of fiber insert was placed onto the composite increment and cured. The specimens were stored in distilled water at 37oC for 6 months. All specimens were subjected to 3000 thermo-cycling. The tooth surfaces except for 1 mm around the restoration margins covered with two layers of nail varnish .The teeth were immersed in 2% Basic Fuchsin for 24 hours, then rinsed and sectioned mesiodistally. The microleakage was determined under a stereomicroscope (40X). Data were statistically analyzed by Kruskal-wallis and Mann-Whitney U tests (p< 0.05). Results: The Kruskal-Wallis test revealed no significant differences in mean microleakage scores among all groups (p= 0.281). Conclusion: Use of polyethylene fiber inserts and etch-and-rinse and self-etch adhesives had no effect on microleakage in class II resin composite restorations with gingival margins below the CEJ after 6- month water storage.
