Bond strengths of a hypothetical hydrophilic dentine-bonding agent were calculated as a function of dentine depth and resin strength to evaluate the importance of several variables in a simple model. The tested hypothesis was that the total bond strength was the sum of the strengths of resin tags, hybrid layer and surface adhesion. Each of these three variables has a range of values that can influence its relative contribution. The resulting calculations indicate the potential for higher bond… CONTINUE READING
