Influence of saliva contamination on zirconia ceramic bonding.

OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of saliva contamination and cleaning methods on adhesive bonding to dental zirconia ceramic with a phosphate-monomer-containing luting resin. METHODS After saliva immersion, airborne-particle abraded ceramic specimens were cleaned with water rinsing, with isopropanol, with phosphoric… CONTINUE READING
