A Critical Review of the Durability of Adhesion to Tooth Tissue: Methods and Results
The immediate bonding effectiveness of contemporary adhesives is quite favorable, regardless of the approach used. In the long term, the bonding effectiveness of some adhesives drops dramatically,Expand

Systematic review of the chemical composition of contemporary dental adhesives.
Dental adhesives are designed to bond composite resins to enamel and dentin. Their chemical formulation determines to a large extent their adhesive performance in clinic. Irrespective of the numberExpand

Buonocore memorial lecture. Adhesion to enamel and dentin: current status and future challenges.
Bonding to tooth tissue can be achieved through an "etch&rinse," "self-etch" or "glass-ionomer" approach. In this paper, the basic bonding mechanism to enamel and dentin of these three approaches isExpand

State of the art of self-etch adhesives.
This paper reflects on the state of the art of self-etch adhesives anno 2010. After presenting the general characteristics of self-etch adhesives, the major shortcomings of the most simple-to-useExpand

Bonding of an auto-adhesive luting material to enamel and dentin.
OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were (1) to assess the bonding performance of a new auto-adhesive cement (RelyX Unicem, 3M ESPE) to enamel and dentin, using a standard micro-tensile bondExpand

Comparative Study on Adhesive Performance of Functional Monomers
Mild self-etch adhesives demineralize dentin only partially, leaving hydroxyapatite around collagen within a submicron hybrid layer. We hypothesized that this residual hydroxyapatite may serve as aExpand

Relationship between bond-strength tests and clinical outcomes.
One often alleges that laboratory bond-strength testing cannot predict clinical effectiveness of adhesives. Major argument to sustain this claim is the wide variation in bond-strength values recordedExpand

How much do resin-based dental materials release? A meta-analytical approach.
OBJECTIVES Resin-based dental materials are not inert in the oral environment, and may release components, initially due to incomplete polymerization, and later due to degradation. Since there areExpand

Polymerization shrinkage and elasticity of flowable composites and filled adhesives.
OBJECTIVES The magnitude and kinetics of polymerization shrinkage, together with elastic modulus, may be potential predictors of bond failure of adhesive restorations. This study examined theseExpand

The clinical performance of adhesives.
OBJECTIVES Traditional mechanical methods of retaining restorative materials have been replaced to a large extent by tooth conserving adhesive restorative techniques. Because adhesives have beenExpand
