Abstract

Objective To determine the effect of crosshead speed and placement technique on interfacial crack formation in microtensile bond strength (MTBS) test using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). Materials and methods MTBS test beams (0.9 × 0.9 mm2) were prepared from flat human dentin disks bonded with self-etch adhesive (Clearfil SE Bond, Kuraray) and universal composite (Clearfil AP-X, Kuraray) with or without flowable composite lining (Estelite Flow Quick, Tokuyama). Each beam was scanned under SS-OCT (Santec, Japan) at 1319 nm center wavelength before MTBS test was performed at crosshead speed of either 1 or 10 mm/min (n = 10). The beams were scanned by SS-OCT again to detect and measure cracks at the debonded interface using digital image analysis software. Representative beams were observed under confocal laser scanning microscope to confirm the fractography findings. Results Two-way ANOVA showed that for MTBS the crosshead speed was not a significant factor (p > 0.05), while there was a difference between placement techniques (p < 0.001), with flowable lining yielding higher mean values. On the other hand, for crack formation, there was a significant difference between crosshead speeds (p < 0.01), while the placement technique did not show up as a statistically significant factor (p > 0.05). The interaction of factors were not significant (p > 0.05). Significance Testing MTBS samples at higher crosshead speeds induced more cracks in dentin. Lining with a flowable composite improved the bonding quality and increased the bond strength. SS-OCT can visualize interfacial cracks after restoration debonding.
