To compare the immediate microtensile bond strengths (µTBSs) of four mild self-etch universal adhesives applied to dentin and enamel with self-etch and etch-and-rinse techniques.
This article was published in the following journal.

This study evaluated the immediate and 6-month dentin bond strength of universal adhesives used in etch-and-rinse or self-etch bonding strategies. The adhesives tested were Ambar Universal, G-Bond, Si...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the shear bond strengths (SBSs) of one-step self-etch adhesives containing different co-solvents to enamel and dentin and to determine the failure modes of tested...
The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of dentin pretreatment with 8% arginine on the immediate and 6-month bond strength (BS) of adhesive systems and surface morphology of dentin.
The adhesion of composite resins to the dentin substrate is influenced by the treatment of the smear layer. While etch-and-rinse systems require dentin to be conditioned with phosphoric acid, self-etc...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the use of 70 vol.% ethanol as a dentin pretreatment on the bond strength (BS) of a two-step etch-and-rinse adhesive.
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs); activated by the application of adhesive systems on dentin cause degradation of the collagen proteins and loss of bond strength in adhesive restorations. ...
Composite restoration of non-carious cervical lesions has always been a challenge for the clinician, considering that the most frequent cause of failure is retention loss. Adhesion of com...
Objective: This double-blind randomized clinical trial evaluates strategies for improving the bonding of universal adhesive to enamel in non-carious cervical lesions (NCCL) of a new univer...
The aim of this randomized, controlled, prospective clinical trial was to evaluate the performances of two different universal adhesives and an etch&rinse adhesive in restoration of non-ca...
The aim of the study is to investigate the role of pumice prophylaxis in the self etch primer method on clinical bond strengths. The relevance is that removal of the pumicing step in the S...
Adherent debris produced when cutting the enamel or dentin in cavity preparation. It is about 1 micron thick and its composition reflects the underlying dentin, although different quantities and qualities of smear layer can be produced by the various instrumentation techniques. Its function is presumed to be protective, as it lowers dentin permeability. However, it masks the underlying dentin and interferes with attempts to bond dental material to the dentin.
Substances used to bond COMPOSITE RESINS to DENTAL ENAMEL and DENTIN. These bonding or luting agents are used in restorative dentistry, ROOT CANAL THERAPY; PROSTHODONTICS; and ORTHODONTICS.
The hard portion of the tooth surrounding the pulp, covered by enamel on the crown and cementum on the root, which is harder and denser than bone but softer than enamel, and is thus readily abraded when left unprotected. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992)
A hard thin translucent layer of calcified substance which envelops and protects the dentin of the crown of the tooth. It is the hardest substance in the body and is almost entirely composed of calcium salts. Under the microscope, it is composed of thin rods (enamel prisms) held together by cementing substance, and surrounded by an enamel sheath. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p286)
Localized destruction of the tooth surface initiated by decalcification of the enamel followed by enzymatic lysis of organic structures and leading to cavity formation. If left unchecked, the cavity may penetrate the enamel and dentin and reach the pulp. The three most prominent theories used to explain the etiology of the disease are that acids produced by bacteria lead to decalcification; that micro-organisms destroy the enamel protein; or that keratolytic micro-organisms produce chelates that lead to decalcification.
