|Title:||Influence of the curing mode on the degree of conversion of a dual-cured self-adhesive resin luting cement beneath ceramic|
|Abstract:||Objective. To evaluate the effect of the delayed photoactivation and ceramic barrier on the degree of conversion (DC) of self-adhesive resin cement. Materials and methods. Circular specimens (5 mm in diameter x 1 mm in thickness) of the RelyX U-100 resin cement were made using the following curing protocols (n = 10): (G1) 40 s beneath a IPS Empress II ceramic; (G2) 40 s of direct photocuring; (G3) 80 s beneath the ceramic; (G4) 80 s of direct photocuring; (G5) self-curing; (G6) 5 min in the absence of light (self-curing) followed by transceramic photocuring for 40 s; (G7) 5 min in the absence of light (self-curing) followed by transceramic photocuring for 80 s. All the specimens were photoactivated by LED (800 mW/cm(2)). After 24 h of dry storage, the DC was measured by FTIR, on the top surface of the specimens. Data were submitted to one-way ANOVA and Tukey test (p <= 0.05). Results. Direct photocuring with no ceramic interposition, regardless of the curing time (40 s and 80 s) promoted the highest conversion mean (56.79 +/- 1.19 and 59.98 +/- 2.93, respectively) and the 5 min delay time for the transceramic photocuring presented a similar mean compared to the immediate transceramic photocuring. The DC was influenced by the ceramic barrier, decreasing the conversion values (49.72 +/- 1.91 for 40 s and 52.36 +/- 2.50 for 80 s), with no statistical difference from the groups with the previous 5 min of photoactivation delay. The self-cure only showed the worst DC values. Conclusion. Direct photocuring provided a higher degree of conversion for the self-adhesive resin cement. The delayed light activation did not influence the degree of conversion for the resin cement tested.|
