OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to characterize the effects of either acidic or combined alkaline/heat treatments on the surface of grit-blasted commercially pure (cp) titanium. The effects of the previous treatments on the shear bond strength (SBS) of cp titanium to conventional glass ionomer, resin-reinforced glass ionomer and self-adhesive resin luting cements were evaluated. METHODS Titanium discs were machined and received one of the following treatments; grit-blasting (GB), grit… CONTINUE READING
