In vitro quantitative evaluation of marginal microleakage in Class II restorations confected with a glass ionomer cement and two composite resins



In vitro quantitative evaluation of marginal microleakage in Class II restorations confected with a glass ionomer cement and two composite resins



Pesquisa Odontologica Brasileira 15(4): 277-282



This study evaluated, in vitro, marginal microleakage in class II restorations confected with the glass ionomer cement Vitremer and with the composite resins Ariston pHc and P-60. The aims of the study were to assess the effect of thermocycling on those materials and to evaluate two methods utilized in the analysis of dye penetration. Sixty premolars divided in three groups were utilized; the teeth had proximal cavities whose cervical walls were located 1 mm below the cementoenamel junction. Half of the test specimens from each group underwent thermocycling; the other half remained in deionized water, at 37 degrees C. The specimens were immersed, for 24 hours, in a basic 0.5% fuchsin solution at 37 degrees C. For the analysis of microleakage, the specimens were sectioned in a mesio-distal direction, and the observation was carried out with the software Imagetools. The results were evaluated through the 2-way ANOVA and through the Tukey's test. All groups presented marginal microleakage. The smallest values were obtained with Vitremer, followed by those obtained with the composite resins P-60 and Ariston pHc. There was no statistically significant difference caused by thermocycling, and the method of maximum infiltration was the best for detecting the extension of microleakage.
