Abstract

PURPOSE:

To evaluate the effect of endodontic retreatment on the bond strength of different cementation techniques (self-adhesive and conventional resin cement) through the push-out mechanical testing and the penetrability of resin cements to root dentin.

METHODS:

60 human teeth with single oval-shaped canals were used (n=15) : G1 - Endodontic treatment and cementation with RelyX ARC (ETA); G2 - Endodontic treatment and cementation with U200 (ETU); G3 - Endodontic retreatment and cementation with RelyX ARC (ERA); G4 - Endodontic retreatment and cementation with U200 (ERU). The groups with conventional endodontic treatment were filled with AH plus (ETA and ETU), while the groups that were submitted to endodontic retreatment were initially filled with Endofill and afterwards with AH Plus. Each radicular third (cervical, middle, and apical, of each tooth) was submitted to push-out bond strength testing, followed by evaluation with confocal laser microscopy to determine the penetration of the resin cements, and scanning electron microscopy was used to evaluate the failure mode. The parametric data were evaluated by two-way ANOVA and Tukey tests, and non-parametric data by Kruskal-Wallis and Dunn tests (α< 0.05).

RESULTS:

The ETA group had higher bond strength values to intra-radicular dentin than the other groups in all root thirds (P< 0.05). Endodontic retreatment had a negative impact on the penetration and push-out bond strength of RelyX ARC and U200 cement, regardless of the analyzed radicular third.

CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE:

The bond strength between fiber post and root dentin can be affected by several factors, such as technical failure, cementation technique, pretreatment of the dentin, type of post and adaptation. The endodontic retreatment interferes negatively on the bond strength and penetrability of RelyX ARC and U200 cements to dentin, regardless of the analyzed radicular third. Therefore, the endodontic retreatment might have an adverse effect due to over preparation and aggression to the root canal.
