Abstract

Objectives

To evaluate and compare enamel shear bond strength of an all-in-one self-etching primer (Prompt™ L-Pop™) to regular acid etch material when bonded to two-fissure sealant systems (Concise and Dyract Seal).

Method and Materials

Forty newly extracted non-carious first permanent molars were embedded in a Teflon mold. The teeth were divided into four groups and each consisted of ten specimens. The bonding surfaces were treated with either Prompt L-Pop as recommended by the manufacturer or etched with phosphoric acid. After 24 hours of water storage, the specimens were evaluated for shear bond strength using an Instron testing machine. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) examinations were carried out to evaluate the failure sites of the sealants.

Results

The mean shear bond strengths using Prompt L-Pop were Concise: 23.46 MPa and Dyract Seal: 20.34 MPa. These values were higher than and statistically different from those of Dyract Seal (9.99 MPa) and Concise (8.85 MPa) when phosphoric acid was used. The failure was predominantly of the adhesive type. The SEM examination showed the failure of debonding was predominantly related to the type of etching systems used rather than the type of fissure sealants.

Conclusion

The use of the all-in-one self-etching adhesive Prompt L-Pop improves the mean enamel shear bond strength of fissure sealants.
