Effect of 2% chlorhexidine application on microtensile bond strength of resin composite to dentin using one-step self-etch adhesives

Abstract

Pre-treatment of the tooth surface with antibacterial agents is useful for eliminating the harmful effects caused by either the residual bacteria or bacterial microleakage. Chlorhexidine is one of the most widely used broad spectrum antibacterial or antiseptic agents in dentistry. The efficacy of chlorhexidine in caries prevention had been established in clinical trials. The latest development in dental adhesion is based on simplification and a reduced application time. The first self-etch adhesives were composed of two solutions, an acidic primer and bonding resin. Recently, many clinicians have shifted to one-step self-etch systems (all-in-one adhesives), in which the manufacturers have attempted to incorporate all the primary components of an adhesive system (etchant, primer, and bonding resin) into a single solution.
