Fluoridated light-activated bonding resin adhesion to enamel and dentin: primary vs. permanent.

Author information

Department of Pediatric Dentistry, Nagasaki University School of Dentistry, Japan.



This study compared fluoridated bonding resin adhesion to primary enamel (Group 1), primary dentin (Group 2), permanent enamel (Group 3), and permanent dentin (Group 4).


The buccal surfaces of 24 primary molars and 24 premolars were used. The bonding system and resin composite used in this study were Imperva Fluorobond and Lite-Fil IIA (Shofu Inc., Kyoto, Japan). Effects of tooth surface conditioning by FB primer were observed using SEM (N = 2/group). Shear bond strengths (SBS) were tested, and the test surfaces of enamel, dentin, and resin specimens were observed using SEM (N = 10/group). Data was statistically analyzed using one-way ANOVA with subsequent post hoc Duncan's new multiple range test at P < 0.05.


Effects of tooth surface conditioning by FB primer were appropriate to dentin but low to enamel. Means and standard deviations of the SBS for each group were: Group 1 (16.34, 5.53 MPa), Group 2 (15.06, 7.02 MPa), Group 3 (14.39, 6.52 MPa) and Group 4 (15.45, 5.35 MPa). There was no significant difference of SBS among Groups 1, 2, 3, and 4.


Imperva Fluorobond system gave the same level of bond strength to primary enamel, primary dentin, permanent enamel, and permanent dentin.
