Influence of the hybrid layer thickness and resin tag length on microtensile bond strength. Acta odontol. latinoam. [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.1, pp.8-14. ISSN 1852-4834.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the correlation between the hybrid layer thickness/resin tag length and the microtensile bond strength of conventional two-step adhesive system, when applied to healthy dentinal tissue. After performing the restorative adhesive procedures and tooth extractions, ten specimens were sectioned in the mesiodistal direction. One section was used for microscopic analysis of the resin tag lengths and the hybrid layer thickness, while the other was used for the microtensile bond strength test (0.5 mm/min). The fractured surface was classified according to the fracture pattern, under a stereoscopic microscope at 40× magnification. Data obtained were submitted to analysis using one-way ANOVA and Pearson’s Correlation test (α=0.05). The means corresponding to the hybrid layer thickness, resin tag lengths and the microtensile test were 2.68 μm, 6.43 μm and 16.23 MPa, respectively. There was no correlation between the means of the values obtained for the microtensile test, and those presented by the hybrid layer (r2=0.40, p>0.05) and resin tags (r2=0.21, p>0.05). The microtensile bond strength of the conventional twostep adhesive system Adper Single Bond 2 did not depend on the thickness of the hybrid layer and length of resin tags.
