|Title:||Bond strength of a self-adhesive resinous cement to root dentin irradiated with a 980-nm diode laser|
|Abstract:||Objective. To assess the bond strength of Rely-X Unicem (RX), in comparison with Cement-Post (CP), to the cervical, middle and apical thirds of root canal dentin irradiated with a 980-nm diode laser. Material and methods. Forty maxillary canines were separated into four equal groups according to the cement used and the laser surface treatment: RX/laser irradiation (LI) group; RX/no irradiation (NI) group; CP/LI group; and CP/NI group. Two slices (2-mm thick) of each root third were submitted to a push-out test to assess the bond strength of the cement to the root canal dentin. The data obtained were submitted to two-way ANOVA and fracture analysis was performed by scanning electron microscopy. Results. The type of cement as well as 980-nm LI at the different root canal thirds significantly affected the bond strength values (p < 0.05). LI promoted an increase in bond strength of RX in all root thirds (p < 0.05). For all groups, bond strength to the cervical third was highest, followed by the middle and apical thirds (p < 0.05). When the cements were compared, RX always presented the highest bond strength in comparison with CP, irrespective of the laser application (p < 0.05). Fracture analysis showed a predominance of mixed failures for RX and of adhesive failure between dentin and cement for CP, irrespective of the laser application. Conclusion. The 980-nm LI promoted an increase in bond strength of the self-adhesive resinous cement to root dentin.|
