This study investigated adhesion to dentin of a modified 4-META/MMA-TBB resin (4-methacryloxyethyl trimellitate anhydride in methyl methacrylate initiated by tri-n-butyl borane) which does not require PMMA powder to polymerize. Ground bovine dentin specimens were pre-treated with an aqueous solution of 10% citric acid and 3% ferric chloride (10-3). This solution removes the smear layer and demineralizes the dentin, exposing collagen. Improved bond strengths were obtained when a HEMA-primer was… CONTINUE READING
