Abstract

The purpose of this study was to measure the shear bond strength of Gluma/Lumifor (Gluma and Lumifor--Columbus Dental, St. Louis, MO) to the occlusal dentin of primary first and second molars, permanent first and second molars and premolars. The data were examined for differences using a one-way analysis of variance and Duncan's Multiple Range test. The shear bond strength, (kc/cm2, x +/- SEM) to primary molars was 85.6 +/- 13.7, to permanent molars was 110.1 +/- 9.3, and to premolars was 124.0 +/- 9.3. Gluma/Lumifor provides moderately good bonding to dentin. The bond strengths of Gluma/Lumifor to primary molars was statistically significantly lower than to permanent teeth.
