Flashcards in 5. Bonding Agents and Mechanisms Deck (33):
Why adhesive dentistry?
Tooth colored materials for more ____ restorations More ____ because you don't need to create very retentive cavity preps
Less ____ consuming since you don't need to spend as much time prepping the cavity
Adhesive dentistry: a branch of dentistry which deals with ____ or bonding to the natural substance of teeth, ____ and ____.
Important problem in restorative dentistry
____ bonding of materials to dental hard tissues
This is a problem, especially with ____ restorations (amalgam, inlays, onlays, gold). There isn’t any bond between restorative materials and ____ or ____
New adhesive restorative materials
bonding between cavity walls and restorative material, then restoration-cavity integration
With the help of new adhesive restorative materials, it is possible to create a bond between tissues like ____ and ____ and ____ material. That’s why adhesive dentistry is very important.
In operative dentistry, we create an adhesive restoration after bonding with the tooth tissues. Adhesive restorations are composed of two parts:
____ resin material (which is like amalgam, at the top of the cavity prep)
____ agent (____ material we use to stick composite material to enamel and dentin)
Bonding agents are ____ materials used to make a dental composite filling material to stick to both ____ and ____.
They can be defined as material of ____ viscosity, when applied on the tooth surface, forms a thin film layer after setting
It’s difficult to see this bonding agent, but when we apply it to dentin or enamel surfaces, it leaves a ____ surface on
the dentin or enamel, this is the only way we can see that we applied a bonding agent.
Bonding of resin materials: adhesion
A complex phenomenon involving ____ and ____ mechanism that allows attachment of one material to another and proper sealing.
The bonding between adhesive material (composite) and the tooth surface is obtained by means of adhesion. ____: used to bond composite material to dentin or enamel. Reads slide.
Mechanical means of adhesion
- bonding occurs because of penetration of one material into another at the ____ level
- for example, in composite resins the bonding involves the penetration of ____ into enamel and dentin and formation of ____
Mechanical means of adhesion: occur when one material penetrates into another material
Chemical means of adhesion
Adhesion promotors-coupling agents: ____, NPG-GMA, HEMA, ____
Chemical means of adhesion: adhesion promoters or coupling agents in the ____ bonding material. Especially nowadays, different bonding materials use different ____ agents for chemical bonding with the tooth tissue.
MDP: currently the main material used in different ____ agents, different adhesive materials; it is a ____ that bon to ____ of dentin and enamel. Almost all of the companies use this monomer now that the patent has expired
For a good adhesion
Without bonding agents, we cannot get a good bond with the tooth surface. We need this glue! There are different bonding agents on the market, Dr. Ozer will explain the main groups of bonding agents to you later.
Concept of a dentin bonding agent:
Bonding agents bond both dentin and enamel and also to composite, it should bond both sides.
Bonding agents usually have two parts in their chemical composition. The ____ part bonds dentin because dentin has some dentinal liquid in the dental tubules, it’s not a very dry surface.
The ____ part bonds to composite. These two parts need to work in an accordance in a very strong integral mechanism
Steps in forming good ahdesion
(1) clean ____
A clean, uncontaminated tooth surface
(2) good ____
...of the surface with the bonding agent - needs to be viscous enough to seal, to wet the surface.
(3) intimate ____
...with the bonding surface
...with the surface by mechanical and chemical means of adhesion/bonding
with the dentin surface
(5) good ____
Bonding to Enamel
Enamel bonding is a bit easier and more simple to achieve.
In 1955, Dr. Buonocore acid etched the enamel surface for the first time and introduced the acid etch technique to the dental field.
We create a porous, irregular surface that is invaded by the bonding agent. It is ____ of the surface.
To get good adhesion, we need to bond enamel and dentin, but they have different structures. Enamel bonding is different from dentin bonding. Enamel is a very hard tissue with almost ____% inorganic hydroxyapatite structure.
When we acid etch the enamel surface, we create a porous, irregular surface because the strong acid (____ acid) creates a porous surface on enamel according to whether the surface is an uncut or cut enamel surface.
Acid etching creates a very small tiny porous surface in the center of enamel rods and around the enamel rods, we create a big ____. Then, bonding agent infiltrates in these micro and macro gap areas around or inside of enamel rods, and makes ____ or macrotags, these are kind of interlocking with the enamel.
How about dentin
Tubules from pulp to DEJ: larger and numerous near pulp
Fluid movement dictated by ____
Covered with ____ layer
Contains a strong ____ matrix
Dentin is not like enamel, it’s made of inorganic hydroxyapatite crystals too, but it’s mainly ____ by it’s chemical composition.
Dentin has ____ with dentinal fluid. When we cut the dentin surface we create a ____ layer on the surface (unlike enamel, which has a clean surface with no extra layer when you cut it). Dentin has a very strong collagen network. It has collagen fibers, that’s why dentinal bonding is different from enamel bonding.
This is a debris left on the surface after cutting, consists of ____ and altered denatured ____ which fill the orifices of the tubules
Sometimes this debris also creates a ____ plug in the dentin tubules, which is not good because it prevents us from getting into the dentin ____.
Smear layer cont.
When we acid etch the dentin surface, like in enamel, we also dissolve the ____ of dentin. But in dentin, there are collagen fibers. When we acid etch, the collagen fibers are not supported by the hydroxyapatite anymore, and they start to ____.
With the different parts of dentin bonding agents, we expand these collagen fibers and try to get into the collagen fibers with the bonding to create an interlocking with the dentinal surface. This interlocking is called a ____ layer.
Dr. Nakabayashi explained to the world in 1982 that there is also dentinal interlocking if we use acid etching on the surface. I will explain to you how we get this interlocking without collapsing the collagen fibers. We have to expand them, and then invade through the collagen fibers to get a good hybrid layer. Also with the dentin surface, after the hybrid layer, some of the resin material gets into the dentin tubules, like in enamel, we also get another interlocking with the dentin tubules too.
Summary: on the dentin surface, we have ____, a ____ layer, which is made of collagen fibers, ____ material, ____ tags in dentin tubules, and the ____ agent.
What is the main goal for a good dentin bonding
Strong and durable ____ layer formation with stable collagen fibers
The main goal is: reads slide, because the hybrid layer is the layer we interlock with the dentin surface. We need ____ collagen fibers, otherwise we cannot get this interlocking with the collagen. We need to keep the collagen alive and strong.
