UNLABELLED Bonding of composite restorative materials to teeth usually involves surface etching and drying of both dentin and enamel. These two hard tissues have very different water contents. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of changes in humidity on the dimensional changes in dentin disks constrained by enamel and in unconstrained dentin. METHODS Changes in humidity were used to induce changes in the moisture level of the hard tissues, which created a… CONTINUE READING
