Aim: The purpose of this in vitro study was to compare the shear peel bond strength of four different kinds of dental luting cements [Conventional Glass Ionomer Cement (CGIC), Resin Modified Glass Ionomer Cement (RMGIC), Glass Carbomer Luting Cement (GCC) and Dual Cure Resin Cement (RC)] and assess the remnant and antibacterial characteristics.
Methods: In the shear peel bond strength test part of the study, stainless steel bands were cemented to 80 extracted permanent molar teeth randomly by using one of four tested cements (20 per group). The force needed for debonding was evaluated by using a universal testing machine. After the debonding test, Adhesive Remnant Index (ARI) was applied. The antibacterial effect of the cements on the selected bacterias (S. mutans and C. albicans) were tested with agar diffusion test.
Results: RC showed the highest and GCC showed the lowest shear peel bond strength among all luting cements. As for the antibacterial effects, the RMGIC cement group was the only cement which showed antibacterial effect on C. albicans. All cements showed some antibacterial effect on S. mutans; however, GCC didn’t show any antibacterial effect on S. mutans and C. albicans.
Conclusion: The findings show that different types of luting cements may be preferred according to the characteristics of the individual.
