Fluid flow through dentin–self-etch resin interface during long term in vitro aging

Abstract : This work aimed at characterizing the interface between dentin and the resin-infiltrated dentin made following the etching procedure that prepares for the bonding of tooth-colored restorations. The non-destructive measurement of fluid flow through the dentin-self-etch resin interface was followed repeatedly during a two year aging period. Two self-etch adhesive systems were selected for experiments on the evolution of per-meability and evaluation of infrared spectral changes following the 24 month aging period. The adhesives contained water and a co-solvent, namely acetone for iBond, and t-butanol for Xeno V. For both adhesive systems , the permeability decreased during the first 3 months after etching, reaching values of −66.9 and −70.5% for iBond and Xeno V, respectively. Afterwards, the fluid flow slowly increased but still remained below 50% of the initial value following the 2-year aging period. The slow degradation of the resin-dentin interface, attributed to water impregnated collagen hydrolysis, is evidenced by these variations in fluid flow, and is also noted by the increase in water-related infrared absorption bands at 3300 cm −1 and at 1600 cm −1. The results are discussed in terms of co-solvent hydrophobicity, evaporation rate and viscosity together with resin infiltration depth and affinity for water.
