Abstract

Aims:

The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of the diode laser used for dentin sensitivity on the clinical success of non-carious cervical lesion (NCCL) restorations restored with different adhesive systems.

Methods:

20 NCCLs were restorated with Universal Single Bond (Self Etch) (3M, USA) and Grandio (Voco, Germany), 20 NCCLs were restorated with Universal Single Bond (Total Etch) and Grandio. After diode laser application, 20 NCCLs were restorated with Universal Single Bond and Grandio, 20 NCCLs were restorated with Universal Single Bond (Total Etch) and Grandio. The restorations were clinical evaluated by two examiners at baseline, for 6 and 18 months using modified United States Public Health Service (USPHS) Criteria. Chi-square test was used for statistical analyse.

Results:

The lowest rates of retention was found in the Group 1. There was no statistically significant difference among the groups in marginal discoloration, marginal integrity, sensitivity (P > 0.05).

Conclusion:

Diode laser application prior to the restoration of teeth with NCCL don't reduce the retention rate of restorations, may reduce hypersensitivity and may affect the success of restoration. However, further laboratory and clinical studies are required.
