Abstract

The interfacial structure between an adhesive composite resin and dentin after caries removal and acid conditioning was investigated. The hybrid layer between the adhesive resin and surface-demineralized dentin was found to be wider in the area of empty tubules compared with that of the occluded tubules, and was found to be the thinnest at the lateral walls of the cavity where the dentinal tubules run parallel to the cavity surface. Thus, the extent of demineralization by acid conditioning as well as impregnation of resin into the intertubular dentin forming the hybrid layer is probably related to the degree of closure and direction of the dentinal tubules.
