Abstract

This study examined the effects of commonly employed endodontic irrigants on Epiphany-dentin bond strengths. Smear layers were created on dentin discs obtained from human third molars. Five groups of 10 discs each were treated with one of the following: (a) water; (b) 2% chlorhexidine; (c) 6% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl); (d) 6% NaOCl followed by EDTA and water; or (e) 1.3% NaOCl followed by MTAD. The treated surfaces were air-dried and treated with Epiphany primer. Hollow steel tubes were placed on the dentin surfaces, and Epiphany sealer was applied to dentin inside the tubes. Samples were tested for shear bond strengths after 7 days of storage. Representative specimens were examined using scanning electron microscopy. One-way ANOVA and Tukey's test revealed significant differences among the groups (p < 0.05). Using water or chlorhexidine as an irrigant resulted in significantly lower bond strengths when compared with NaOCl, NaOCl/EDTA, or NaOCl/MTAD. Neither EDTA nor MTAD significantly improved Epiphany-dentin bond strengths when compared with NaOCl used alone.
