Influence of acid etching on shear strength of different glass ionomer cements|
Bortoletto, Carolina Carvalho; Junior, Walter Gomes Miranda; Motta, Lara Jansiski & Bussadori, Sandra Kalil
Aim: To assess the influence of dental etching on the shear strength of different glass ionomer cements.
Methods: The crown of 60 bovine incisors was prepared to obtain a flat, smooth surface, were attached to a PVC tube and randomly divided into six groups: Group 1 - Riva Self
Cure without etching; Group II - Riva Self Cure with pre-etching; Group III - Maxxion R without etching; Group IV - Maxxion R with pre-etching; Group V - Ketac™Molar Easymix without etching; and Group VI - Ketac™Molar Easymix with pre-etching. Etching was performed with 10% polyacrylic acid for 30 s. A standardizing device was used for preparation of the test specimens (SBS Test Method). Following preparation, the specimens were stored in distilled water at 37° C for 24 h. The shear test was performed on a Kratos universal testing machine at a crosshead speed of 0.5 mm/min. The specimens were then viewed under a stereomicroscope at a magnification of x90 for analysis of fractures.
Results: The results revealed that pre-etching increased the shear strength of Riva glass ionomer cement (SDI) alone, whereas no statistically significant differences were found with regard to the other materials tested.
Conclusions: Pre-etching with 10% polyacrylic acid for 30 s increased the shear strength of Riva glass ionomer cement.
