Abstract

Water is required to ionize acid resin monomers for demineralization of tooth substrates. We tested the null hypothesis that altering the water concentration in two-step self-etching primers has no effect on their aggressiveness and bonding efficacy to dentin. Five experimental self-etching primers were prepared with resin-water-ethanol volume ratios of 9-0-1, 8-1-1, 7-2-1, 5-4-1, and 3-6-1. They were applied to smear-layer-covered dentin, followed by a bonding resin and composite build-ups for microtensile bond testing and TEM examination of tracer penetration. Increasing water concentration from 0-60 vol% improved acidic monomer ionization that was manifested as increasing hybrid layer thickness. However, significantly higher bond strength was observed in the 7-2-1 group, with minimal nanoleakage in the corresponding hybrid layer. When self-etching primers are formulated, a balance must be achieved to provide sufficient water for adequate ionization of the acidic monomers, without lowering the resin concentration too much, to optimize their bonding efficacy to dentin.
