Clinical trials remain the only conclusive research of dentin adhesive performance, but variables unique to the oral environment may influence the results. Dentin variability is one factor that may account for extreme variations in clinical evaluations. Despite the encouraging results of laboratory studies, clinical trials with adhesive systems have been disappointing. Current adhesives are reported to react with dentin surfaces by chemical and/or micro-mechanical mechanisms. Dentin surfaces… CONTINUE READING
