Abstract

A material that bonds to dentin and seals both the root canal and exposed dentinal tubules would be desirable following root resection. The purpose of this study was to measure the sealing ability of four dentin bonding agents on the resected root end. The bonding systems evaluated were Amalgambond (AMB), Scotchbond Multi-Purpose (SMP), Prisma Universal Bond 3 (PUB 3), and All-Bond 2 (AB2). All materials were applied directly to the resected root end without a class I preparation. One-half of the roots in each group were contaminated with human blood before bonding. Microleakage was measured using fluid filtration at various time intervals from 1 to 24 wk. Results indicated that all dentin bonding agents significantly reduced apical microleakage compared with prebonded controls at all time intervals. Blood contamination did not adversely affect the sealing ability of AMB, PUB 3, or SMP. The blood-contaminated AB2 group displayed significantly greater microleakage after 12 and 24 wk than the uncontaminated roots.
