Stability of two resin combinations used as sealants against toothbrush abrasion and acid challenge in vitro


Yetkiner, Enver; Wegehaupt, Florian Just; Attin, Rengin; Wiegand, Annette; Attin, Thomas (2014). Stability of two resin combinations used as sealants against toothbrush abrasion and acid challenge in vitro. Acta Odontologica Scandinavica, 72(8):825-830.

Abstract

Objective. To test the stability of two conventional adhesives when combined with a low-viscosity caries infiltrant used for sealing sound enamel against toothbrush abrasion and acid challenge in vitro. Materials and methods. Bovine enamel discs (Ø = 3 mm) randomly assigned to three groups (n = 10/group) were etched with 37% phosphoric acid for 30 s and treated with resins of different monomer contents forming three test groups: (1) Untreated specimens (Control); (2) Infiltrant (Icon, DMG) + conventional enamel bonding adhesive (Heliobond, Ivoclar Vivadent); and (3) Infiltrant + conventional orthodontic adhesive (Transbond XT Primer, 3M Unitek). All specimens were immersed in hydrochloric acid (pH 2.6) for up to 9 days, during which they were exposed to 1825 toothbrush-strokes per day. Calcium dissolution was assessed using Arsenazo III method at 24-h intervals. Data were analyzed by Kruskal-Wallis and Wilcoxon signed ranks tests. Results. Cumulative calcium dissolution for the untreated specimens (39.75 ± 7.32 μmol/ml) exceeded the sealed groups (Icon + Heliobond: 23.44 ± 7.03 μmol/ml; Icon + Transbond XT Primer: 22.17 ± 5.34 μmol/ml). Untreated specimens presented a relatively constant calcium dissolution rate throughout the experimental period, whereas the sealed groups presented a gradual increase indicating weakening of the seal by toothbrush abrasion. Both sealed groups presented significantly lower daily calcium dissolution at all time points compared to the control, except for Group 2 on the last measurement day. Conclusions. Low-viscosity caries infiltrant application on sound enamel prior to conventional resin application provided a protective effect against enamel demineralization, but this effect was not stable when challenged mechanically by toothbrush abrasion.
