The purpose of this study was to evaluate the short-term µTBS (Micro-tensile bond strength) and microscopic (SEM and TEM) observation of four recent adhesives. One adhesive was an experimental step-less 1-step system (LLB-2, Tokuyama Dental), which is an all-in-one system without the light-curing step in the application process. The other two were(More)
Dysregulation of Hippo/YAP signaling leads to aberrant cell growth and neoplasia. Although the roles and regulation of Hippo/YAP signaling were extensively studied in cancer biology recently, study systematically checking the expression pattern of core components of this pathway at the tumor tissue level remains lacking. In this study, we thoroughly(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of air-blowing duration on the bonding performance of all-in-one systems using the same pressure (0.25 MPa). Three all-in-one systems were: EB (Easy Bond, 3M ESPE, USA), BB (BeautiBond, Shofu Inc., Japan) and GBp (G-Bond plus, GC Corporation, Japan). After adhesive application, the 3 systems were(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the performance of an experimental all-in-one adhesive. The adhesive, named MTB-200 (Kuraray Medical), contained components to enhance both bond strength and hydrophobicity. The performance of the adhesive was compared with that of CLEARFIL TRI-S BOND (Kuraray Medical) and BeautiBond (SHOFU) using micro-tensile bond(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the µTBS (microtensile bond strength) of currently available self-etching adhesives with an experimental self-etch adhesive in normal and caries-affected dentin, using a portable hardness measuring device, in order to standardize dentin Knoop hardness. Normal (ND) and caries-affected dentin (CAD) were obtained from(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the microtensile bond strength (µTBS) of a newly developed resin cement, ECD-89 (ECD, Tokuyama Dental, Tokyo, Japan) to dentin and to observe the interfacial micromorphology by comparing with two commercial resin cements, Multilink Automix (MA, Ivoclar Vivadent AG, Schaan, Liechtenstein) and Panavia F2.0 (PF,(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of remaining dentin thickness (RDT) on the bond strength of current adhesive systems. Third molars were randomly allocated among four groups depending on the adhesive system used: Clearfil SE Bond ONE (SE1), G-Bond PLUS (GB), BeautiBond (BB), and Clearfil Mega Bond (MB). Bonded specimens were stored in(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the influence of different air-blowing durations on the micro-tensile bond strength (μTBS) of five current one-step adhesive systems to dentin. METHODS One hundred and five caries-free human molars and five current one-step adhesive systems were used: ABU (All Bond Universal, Bisco, Inc.), CUB (CLEARFIL™ Universal Bond, Kuraray),(More)
