OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of saliva contamination on microtensile bond strength (microTBS) between resin interfaces and to determine which decontamination methods best re-established the original resin-resin bond strength. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ninety-six light-cured resin composite cylinders of Z-250, Renew, Clearfil APX, and Pertac II were randomly divided into six groups. For each material, one group of specimens was not contaminated, serving as the… CONTINUE READING
