Influence of light-curing mode on the erosion preventive effect of three different resin-based surface sealants - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Wegehaupt, Florian J; Tauböck, Tobias T; Sener, Beatrice; Attin, Thomas (2012). Influence of light-curing mode on the erosion preventive effect of three different resin-based surface sealants. International Journal of Dentistry, 2012:874359.

Abstract

Objectives. To investigate if reducing the light-curing time (while maintaining similar energy density) of resin-based surface sealants influences their erosion-preventive potential and mechanical stability after thermomechanical loading. Methods. Dentine samples were treated as follows: group 1-untreated, groups 2-4-Seal&Protect, groups 5-7-experimental sealer, and groups 8-10-Syntac Classic system. Groups 2, 5 and 8 were light-cured for 10 s (1000 mW/cm(2)), groups 3, 6 and 9 for 7 s (1400 mW/cm(2)), and groups 4, 7, and 10 for 3 s (3200 mW/cm(2)). After water storage (7 d), first measurement was performed to evaluate baseline permeability of the sealants. After a thermomechanical loading (5000 cycles, 50/5°C, 12000 brushing strokes) a second evaluation of permeability was conducted (measurement 2). Permeability was tested by storing the samples in HCl (pH 2.3; 24 h) and measuring the dentine calcium release by atomic absorption spectroscopy. Results. For the first and second measurements, no influence of light-exposure time on permeability was observed (ANOVA: P > 0.05). No significant difference in the stability of the respective sealants was observed when light-cured for different durations. Conclusion. Shortening the light-curing time, while maintaining energy density constant, has no influence on permeability and stability of the investigated sealants.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
