Oxygen inhibition and incremental layer bond strengths of resin composites.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES When dentists light cure resin composite restorations in increments or after contouring the surface layer to shape with a hand instrument the surface layer is exposed to air during polymerization. The presence of an oxygen inhibited resin surface layer may impact on clinical performance. Conflicting data has been produced in vitro regarding this… (More)
