A dental adhesive is a material, that join two substrates together and solidifies, and is able to transfer a load from one surface to other . These materials play a pivotal role and are an integral part when it comes to composite restorations.
Because of their esthetics and direct-filling capability, composites and adhesives are widely used restorative materials. Nevertheless, dental composite restorations were reported to be associated with accumulation of biofilms and plaques than amalgams and glass ionomer restorations [2,3]. The acid production resultant by biofilms can decrease the local pH to a cariogenic range of 5 - 4, which could lead to tooth structure demineralization and secondary caries formation which is the reason for failure of composite resin restoration in 50 - 70% cases .
