Influence of acid-base conditioning on the bond strength of five luting agents employing self-etching primer to enamel and dentin.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of multi-step conditioning (PA-AD conditioning) with phosphoric acid and sodium hypochlorite on the bond strength of five luting materials to enamel and dentin. Three commercial self-etching/priming systems (Panavia, Linkmax, and Multibond) and two experimental systems (ED/Super-Bond and EDFe/Super-Bond) were used. The surfaces of bovine enamel or dentin were bonded to a stainless steel rod. Tensile bond strength was determined after 24-hour immersion in water. PA-AD conditioning significantly improved the bond strength between enamel and three of the systems (Panavia, ED/Super-Bond, and EDFe/Super-Bond), but did not have any effect on Linkmax and Multibond. Likewise, PA-AD conditioning did not significantly improve the bond strength of Panavia, Linkmax, Multibond, and ED/Super-Bond to dentin. Highest bond strength to dentin (19.7 MPa) was obtained when self-etching primer containing ferric chloride (EDFe/Super-Bond) was used, but additional PA-AD conditioning significantly weakened the bonding (12.6 MPa).
