The effect of low-pressure (41.8 psi) air abrasion with alumina and glass beads on bonding to tooth substrates was evaluated. Tensile bond strengths of a bonding resin to air-abraded bovine enamel and dentin were measured. Scanning electron microscopy was used to observe (1) air-abraded surfaces, (2) fractured surfaces after the tensile bond test, and (3) interfaces of bonded specimens. Air abrasion with glass beads significantly decreased the bond strengths to enamel and dentin, whereas air… CONTINUE READING
