Abstract

Aim

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of pretreatment of different irrigating solutions with and without the application the Nd: YAG laser on the bond strength (RU) of the adhesion of the fiberglass post relined with resin composite to the root dentin.

Materials and methods

Sixty-six single bovine incisor roots were divided into 6 groups according to irrigating solution and with/without the apllication of the Nd: YAG laser after root canal filling: S- saline; C-2% chlorhexidine solution, H-2.5% sodium hypochlorite; SL-saline + laser, CL-2% chlorhexidine + laser; HL-2.5% sodium hypochlorite + laser (all n = 11). The roots were standardized up to a file # 80 and root-filled with gutta-percha (Dentsply) and Sealer 26 (Dentsply) by lateral condensation. The root canal filling was partly removed. Afterward, root canals were irrigated with 5 ml of the selected irrigant and the fiberglass post were cemented with epoxy resin curing dual Bifix QM (VOCO) and a self-etch adhesive system Futurabond DC (VOCO). All roots were sectioned transversely, and the push-out tested was performed. The bond strength means were analyzed by the analysis of variance and Tukey test (α= 5%).

Results

The following bond strength MPa values—were recorded for each group: group C—7.77(±1.8)a, LC—6.46 (±2.2)a, S7.33 (±2.2)a, LS 7.35 (±1.68)a, H 5.43 (±1,3)b, LH 5.13 (±1,6)b. A signifcant bond strenght decrease was noticed with the use of 2.5% NaOCl (p < 0.05). No statistical significant difference were found with our without the apllication of the Nd:YAG laser (p > 0.05).

Conclusion

Regardless the irrigant tested, the use of Nd: YAG laser can be indicated prior to cementation of fiberglass without loss in bond strength.
