Influence of Ankaferd Blood Stopper on shear bond strength of bonding systems

Dent Mater J. 2012;31(2):226-31. Epub 2012 Mar 23.


This study investigated the effect of Ankaferd Blood Stopper (ABS) contamination on bond strength of total- and self-etching systems. Seventy mandibular third molars sectioned in a mesio-distal direction were mounted in acrylic resin, and flat dentin surfaces were exposed. The specimens were randomly assigned to seven groups (n=20), according to the surface treatment: Group I, ABS contamination+37% phosphoric acid+Solobond M; Group II, ABS contamination+Clearfil SE Bond; Group III, ABS contamination+All Bond SE; Group VI, 37% phosphoric acid+ABS contamination+Solobond M; Group V, Solobond M; Group VI, Clearfil SE Bond; and Group VII, All Bond SE. Next, a resin composite (Grandio) was built up using a plastic apparatus and polymerized. The specimens were tested in shear mode at a crosshead speed of 1 mm/min. There were significant differences in bond strengths between the control and ABS-contaminated samples. These findings suggest that ABS contamination reduced bond strength of total- and self-etching adhesives.
