Influence of Loading Types on the Shear Strength of the Dentin-Resin Interface Bonding


Influence of Loading Types on the Shear Strength of the Dentin-Resin Interface Bonding

M A Sinhoreti et al. J Mater Sci Mater Med. .


Small differences in the shear bond test can make critical differences in the bonding strength values. The purpose of this study was to compare the influence of the orthodontic-looped wire, stainless steel tape and chisel systems used in shear bonding tests to verify the resistance in the dentin-resin interface. Forty-eight human teeth were used and divided in three groups. The teeth were ground until a flat smooth surface was achieved, that was delimited with an adhesive tape containing a hole of 4 mm diameter. After, the dentine surface was treated with Scotchbond Multi Purpose and the composite Z-100 was applied in layers, through a stainless steel mold. The samples were stored at 37 degrees C and 100% of relative humidity for 24 h and, then, submitted to 500 thermal cycles. After, they were taken to an universal test machine (Otto Wolpert) with crosshead speed of 6 mm/min. The results were statistically analyzed using a Tukey's test (p\lt 0.05). The orthodontic-looped wire determined the highest values of shear bond (13.33 MPa), following by chisel (7.81 MPa) and stainless steel tape (4.87 MPa). The debonding values depend on a complex stress combination produced during the loading of the samples. Small variations in test methodologies give statistically different values for shear bond strength. Different shear strength methods in vitro make the comparative clinical performance of the resin filling materials difficult.
