Effect of three disinfectants (chlorhexidine, sodium hypochlorite and hydrogen peroxide) on the microleakage of 7th generation bonding agents
Journal of Dental Medicine
and Aims : The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of chlorhexidin 2%, sodium hypochlorite 2.5% and hydrogen peroxide 3% as three effective and regular disinfectants on the microleakage of 7th generation bonding agents in vitro. Materials and Methods: 45 extracted molar teeth without carries were collected and disinfected. On buccal and lingual aspects of these teeth conventional class V cavity preparation were done (90 cavities), then randomly divided to 4 groups, three of them had 10
... hree of them had 10 teeth (20 cavities) and one of them had 5 teeth (10 cavities) as control group. Cavities in each experimental group prepared with one of the disinfectants and then 7th generation bonding (Optibond all in one, kerr) was used as noted by manufacturer, then cavities filled with composite and polished. Bonding agent was used without our previous disinfectants manipulation in control group. Specimens were thermocycled with 1000 thermal cycles between 5 and 55 0 C each for 30 seconds and then immersed in the methylene blue 5%, then sectioned mesiodistally and investigated for microleakage under stereomicroscope (Olympus, Japan). Data were analyzed using Kruskal-Wallis and Wilcoxon mean rank tests. Results: Despite the lower mean rank values for the untreated group at both occlusal and gingival aspects, the Kruskal-Wallis procedure (α=0.05) showed that the treatment factor did not significantly affect the mean rank values neither in occlusal (P=0.12) nor in gingival (P=0.39) part of cavities. Conclusion: According to the results of this study, antimicrobial agents such as chlorhexidine 2%, sodium hypochloride 2.5% and hydrogen peroxide 3% can be used perior to 7th generation dentin bonding agent(Optibond all in one, kerr) without much concern.
