Abstract

Objectives The present study compared the efficacies of the self-etching Teeth Primer (TP: 4-META), and the etchants Red Activator (RA; 65% phosphoric acid) and Green Activator (GA; 10% citric acid with 3% ferric chloride), for bonding to enamel and dentine of human primary and permanent teeth, when used with 4-META/MMA-TBB resin (Bondfill SB). Methods Forty-eight non-carious primary canines and third molars were used. Eight groups were prepared: Group 1 (primary enamel with RA), Group 2 (permanent enamel with RA), Group 3 (primary enamel with TP), Group 4 (permanent enamel with TP), Group 5 (primary dentine with GA), Group 6 (permanent dentine with GA), Group 7 (primary dentine with TP) and Group 8 (permanent dentine with TP). Micro-tensile bond strengths (MTBS) were measured and analyzed statistically using ANOVAs and Tukey HSD tests at α = 0.05. Efficacy of etching/priming and the morphology of bonded interfaces were observed with SEM. Results Etching/priming efficacy of TP on enamel was low. The MTBS of Group 2 was significantly higher than the other groups (Groups 1, 3 and 4). For dentine, significant differences in MTBS were observed, in the order of Groups 6 > 8 > 7 = 5 (p < 0.05). The MTBSs of permanent dentine were significantly higher than primary dentine. For primary teeth, there was no significant difference in the MTBSs between enamel and dentine, irrespective of primer or etchant (p > 0.05). Conclusion TP primer/Bondfill SB may be used as an alternative to other adhesive/resin composite systems for bonding to enamel and dentine of primary teeth.
