Effect of tooth temperature on the dentin bonding durability of a self-curing adhesives: The discrepancy between the laboratory setting and inside the mouth.
Journal Contribution - Journal Article
A two-bottle self-curing universal adhesive (Tokuyama Universal Bond; Tokuyama Dental) that does not require a long waiting time or light curing after application of the bonding material has been developed. This study aimed to evaluate the influence of tooth and adhesive temperature during the bonding procedure on the effectiveness of dentin bonding. The results showed that the tooth temperature affected the effectiveness of the dentin bonding; therefore, to determine the precise bonding ability in the laboratory, the temperature of the tooth must be raised until it is the same as that of the oral cavity. In addition, the temperature of the material did not affect bonding effectiveness; this result confirms that it does not matter whether the refrigerated product is used soon after its removal from the refrigerator or after it reaches room temperature in the clinic.
