OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of an in vitro challenge (NaOCl immersion) on microtensile bond strength (MTBS) of five adhesive systems to dentin. METHODS Flat dentin surfaces from 40 molars were bonded with three total-etch adhesives (Single Bond, Prime&Bond NT and the experimental Prime&Bond XP), and two self-etching agents (Clearfil SE Bond and(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of in vitro degradation and mechanical loading on microtensile bond strength (MTBS) and microleakage (ML) of a resin composite to dentin using a self-etching primer adhesive [Clearfil SE Bond (SEB)] under two hydration statuses. Twenty-four flat dentin surfaces were divided in groups: 1) blot-dried, 2)(More)
Forty children (20 boys and 20 girls) aged 8-16 years with no previous experience of dental visits were included in the study. Three psychological variables were determined: anxiety (State-Trait Anxiety Inventory of Children), personality (Eysenck Personality Questionnaire-Junior) and intelligence (Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children).
