DALAZEN, Chaiane Emilia; SINHORETI, Mario Alexandre Coelho  and  COUTINHO, Margareth. Effect of the superficial treatment in the repair of silorane-based composite aged artificially. RGO, Rev. Gaúch. Odontol. [online]. 2015, vol.63, n.4, pp.376-382. ISSN 0103-6971.


To evaluate the effects of different surface treatments, in repair bond strength of an aged silorane-based composite.


Specimens were made of a silorane-based composite (P90, 3M/ESPE), aged with thermal-cycling (10,000 cycles; 5-55ºC) and randomly submitted to different surface treatments (each group n = 24): control group (no repair); group 1 (only application of P90 adhesive); group 2 (diamond bur asperization + P90 adhesive); group 3 (aluminum oxide sandblasting + P90 adhesive) and group 4 (asperization + sandblasting + P90 adhesive). Then, the specimens were repaired with the same silorane-based composite and each group randomly subdivided into 2 subgroups: stored in distilled water at 37 °C for 7 days or submitted to thermal-cycling (5,000 cycles). After aging, the tensile test was carried out. The data was submitted to 2-way analysis of variance (2-way ANOVA).


The repaired groups aged with oven storage for 7 days did not statistically differ (p>0.05) from the corresponding groups aged with thermal-cycling. The bond strength of the specimens was significantly influenced by the superficial treatment (p<0.01). The highest values of tensile bond strength were found in groups 3 (20.76 ± 4.51 MPa) and 4 (20.67± 3.96 MPa), regardless of aging and repair.


The repair of silorane-based composite showed to be stable after aging, and the superficial treatment with aluminum oxide sandblasting was the most effective.
